Globally, 780 million people lack access to safe drinking water and 2.6 billion lack access to basic sanitation services.
The Soneva Foundation (formerly The SLOW LIFE Foundation) has been able to help over 600,000 people access either safe drinking water or basic sanitation services from funds raised from drinking water which is filtered and bottled in reusable glass bottles on site.

It is estimated that if the hospitality industry unites over this issue, $1bn could be raised annually.
