Water is lifeThe planet is a beautiful place. For living, breathing and enjoying their lives, people need water. A human needs 20 litres of water a day to survive. There are over 7 billion people on the planet, of which 2,7 billion people suffer from a shortage of drinking water. i-team Global wants to help! That's why we partnered up with Made Blue.

Save every drop
We replace every drop of water that is used in i-mop cleaning operations. For example, if an i-mop uses 18L of water per day x 350 days of cleaning, we support the construction of new wells to produce over 6,000 litres of water to replace this consumption.
The gift of clean water
By now Made Blue has realized over 10 billion litres of clean water in developing countries, enough to serve over 137.000 people every year, for the next 10 years.
A global change
By operating i-mops, our partners, clients and users drastically lower the global water footprint whilst contributing positively to the availability of water in the world. This is because most areas in the world are still being cleaned by mop and bucket. This old fashioned method costs 40 liters of water every day versus 18 litres using the i-mop. But it doesn't stop there. We start donating water from the day an i-mop leaves the warehouse, so the donation is a maximum calculation. Also we calculate that the user fills the i-mop tank 4 to 5 times per day. This means a cleaning area of approx. 3000m2. The i-mop’s daily use of 18 litres is being equally compensated by 18 litres of drinking water. We call this 1 litre for 1 litre. In this way the i-mop is a mobile waterwell for people in need.
The total amount of water used by our products and services will be made available elsewhere. Water projects are implemented by international charity organisations such as Red Cross and Amref Flying Doctors.
This is the i-bottle Made Blue: a reusable bottle made of indestructible Tritan: rock hard, crystal clear and unbreakable. The bottle is BPA-free, made in the Netherlands, recyclable and dishwasher safe.
Each bottle provides 500 liters of clean drinking water in Made Blue water projects! Each bottle gives a child in a developing country access to clean drinking water and hygiene at school for up to 6 months. This saves at least 3.5kg of CO2 emissions and over 4kg of plastic waste.
