We believe that everyone in the world has the right to clean drinking water and good hygiene. With the sale of mineral water, natural body care, and luxury home fragrances, we contribute to this cause. We are donating a record amount of €401,020 on World Water Day to the eponymous foundation, Marie-Stella-Maris Foundation. We want to thank all our partners and everyone who has purchased a product from Marie-Stella-Maris in the past year; together, we are truly making a difference!

"1 in 4 people worldwide do not have access to clean drinking water."

World water day, 2023

world water day

Tuesday, March 22, was World Water Day 2022. Every year on this day, the United Nations draws extra attention to world water issues. We believe that everyone worldwide has the right to clean (drinking) water. Clean drinking water and good hygiene within reach ensure better health. Moreover, children can spend more time at school, and women can engage in income-generating activities. In short, clean water changes lives. That is why we donate a fixed amount to sustainable water projects for every product (water, body, or home) you buy.

Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals are seventeen objectives aimed at making the world a better place by 2030. These goals have been agreed upon by the countries affiliated with the United Nations. We advocate for clean drinking water worldwide and thus contribute to achieving Goal 6: Ensure access to clean water and sanitation for all.

Universal access to drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene is crucial for global health. To achieve universal coverage by 2030, current progress must quadruple. Achieving these goals would save 829,000 lives annually.

"I am immensely proud to see our social contribution grow each year. Of course, we still have a long way to go, but every purchase matters. Together, we truly make a difference!"

Social impact

Your purchase matters

This month we look back at the past ten years, a period in which we were able to contribute €1.8 million thanks to our partners and customers. And with which we can provide 70,000+ people with clean water. Without our customers, big and small, we could not have realized this social impact. So this month, we toast them and maybe you; "Cheers, and on to the 1,000,000 people!"
