Our products:


DRINKING WATER - 100% NATURAL and NOT purified - with your purchase you support our villagers with drinking water !

High quality MINERAL DRINKING WATER - so precious and healthy - derived from our own 500 feet deep well in the Shimba Hills !

Compared to "purified" or "modified" bottled water you buy in the supermarket at comparibly high prices our fresh and natural drinking water is not only of good tested quality but also remains vital and energetic - try it, you will taste the difference !

 

And the very best of all is "The triple-win situation:"

 

By buying our fabulous drinking water, you support our villagers. We give hundreds of jerry cans of pure, clean drinking water to our villagers every day at a symbolic price, because there is no clean and good drinking water available in the whole village. With the sale of our high-quality drinking water in Diani, we finance this project. So it is a triple win situation:

- for the villagers   (finally having access to pure drinking water)
- for you as a consumer   (a wonderful water for a unbeatable price )
- for the environment    (refilling instead of throwing single-use plastic bottles and very short transport routes)
 

See the quality facts and the actual test results from the lab-tests of KEBS (kenyan bureau of standardisation) and POLUCON Mombasa from the pics above please.

 

Please note: In order to comply with our Eco-Standards, and to avoid plastics we sell our water only through refilling your own bottle. We dont sell bottled water ! You can buy your initial empty PET hardbody bottles at a fair price from us and can though even avoid using the PC (polycorbonate) bottles which are forbidden in many countries. Our top-cap seals also fit perfectly for water bottle dispensers !

 

For any questions about the procedure and how to subscribe, please do not hesitate to contact us we can send you detailed infos about procedure and how to register, as well as all technical info about our wonderful water !

 

THANK YOU
