One Water, I first knew of this water back in 2008 when it was first being advertised on t.v. It immediately caught my eye (probably 'cause david tennant was in the advert, but still.. it got my attention :P)
Within the advertisement it stated that one billion people in the world had no access to clean water, that each year 2 million people die from drinking contaminated water. In the UK getting water is as simple as turning on the tap, in Africa.. water can be hours away.
However One Water donates all its profits to building water pumps with a difference. Known as play pumps, when children play water is pumped from the ground into storage tanks. This is connected to taps which provide a clean, free water supply. Incase you have never seen the advert nor heard of the water, the advert is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dfb0AGTZx-g
The water is still spring water, botted at Love One Spring, Powys, Wales. I find the water to taste rather nice and have no problems (taste-wise) to drinking it. It's priced at £1 which is also a decent price for a 500ml bottle of water. Even if there is a cheaper alternative rather than the bottle of One Water I still tend to choose this just because of the background of the water.
I've been buying this water for 3 years, I find it stocked at a few newsagents and cafe's local to me.. and so I buy it when on the move and when passing by. I don't tend to buy bottled water on my supermarket shop so can't really comment on whether it is stocked there. My guess is that it would be.
The bottle states natural refreshments for you means new water pumps for Africa. That's because 100% of our profit helps to fund clean water projects. In fact, every time you buy one of our products, you'll be doing something good for someone else, somewhere else.
With that said, would I recommend this product? Yes I would. If you see it over other bottles of water I would recommend you buy this one instead. The water tastes good, the packaging is eye catching in blue and price wise it is pretty average to the other branded bottles of water available.
