The Heart Water Foundation

The Heart Water Foundation was established in 2017 to provide clean sustainable drinking water to water challenged communities around the world.

Rainwater is 100% responsibly sourced, directly from the clouds, meaning it never touches the ground. Groundwater absorbs harmful pharmaceuticals, trace elements of lead, arsenic and many alarming elements that are not fully removed by common purification techniques, such as reverse osmosis and chemical treatments.

Nearly 64% of bottled water sold in the U.S. is actually filtered tap water.

Our goal is to get water to communities that need them most through sustainable, reliable and decentralized sourcing.
