Bon Appétit Sales of RightWater Fund Two More Overseas Wells

When guests buy RightWater at a Bon Appétit café, they’re helping people around the world have access to clean drinking water.

An ethics-based bottled water company committed to helping alleviate the global water crisis, RightWater works with its charity partner DROP4DROP to fund the development of clean water projects across the globe.

In late 2017, Bon Appétit received the uplifting news that its purchases in the initial months offering the product were enough to fund the construction of its first bore-well, located in Kisimbi, Uganda. A mere one year later, that good news has tripled: In its most recent impact report, RightWater revealed that Bon Appétit has sold 35,108 cases of RightWater, the most by far of any Compass sector — and enough to fund two more wells.

A well in the Macheso community in Mzimba, Malawi, now provides clean water to the community’s 315 inhabitants. Another well is also currently under development in the Bilongo community in Uganda’s Mpigi District. This one will be the third funded through sales at Bon Appétit accounts. And as the partnership continues with no signs of abating, RightWater sales will continue to translate into more access to clean water for those in need.
