One is a life-changing brand. 

Every One funds clean water projects in areas that need it most. So far, we have helped The One Foundation raise over £20 million, changing the lives of over 3.6 million people.

One Water was launched back in 2005 with a simple vision: to sell bottled water in the UK to fund water projects across the world. The name One represents the idea that you can’t change a billion people’s lives, but if you can change just One that’s a definition of success.

Choose One Water and join the fight to end water poverty.

Switch Water, Change Lives.

The Story of One Water

What began with a photograph in the Guardian of a Kiberan girl sitting next to a padlocked tap in Nairobi in 2003, is now a movement that has given clean, safe water to 3.6 million people worldwide. All because Duncan Goose – Founder of One Water – returned home from 2 years travelling around the globe, and decided to put his skills in the advertising world to better use, fighting global water poverty.

One simple goal. Others could only dream of.
