We love products that actively give back to local communities in which they operate or global projects they sponsor…
And Maji Water is the latest in feel good products we’ve discovered.
Based in Montreal, Canada, Maji Water bottles spring water sourced from protected natural springs at Saint-Elie-De-Claxton, Quebec.
How It Works
Maji Water currently runs three missions in Nicaragua, India, and Darfur. When you purchase a 500ml bottle of Maji Water, up to 1.5 liters of water will be donated to one of their community-based missions.
Here’s an excerpt from their work in India:
The World Bank estimates that 21% of communicable diseases in India are related to unsafe water.
In India, diarrhea alone causes more than 1,600 deaths daily – equivalent to the total number of passengers in 8 jumbo jets.
Rural India needs more access to clean drinkable water today.
With the help of the diaspora, MAJI is working on sustainable solutions to provide potable water to communities in rural India.
Unfortunately Maji Water is only available in local Montreal stores. While you can order biodegradable boxes of water via their website, driving 2 minutes to your grocery store may seem more practical.
However, Maji Water supports a solid cause – providing fresh drinking water to marginalized communities – and if you can’t get their own brand of water, grab another brand from your local grocery store that actively supports a similar cause.
