We think it's pretty rare to find consumerism with a greater, deeper meaning and when we do we think it should be celebrated. That's why we aim to introduce you to each and every brand on our site at some point along the way, because the things you buy mean more when you understand who made them. More often than not you also find out that there is more to a brand than meets the eye. Well, on that every topic, say hello to Dutch lifestyle brand Marie-Stella-Maris.

The Marie-Stella-Maris Story

In 2010, the United Nations declared that access to clean drinking water and sanitation was a human right. This inspired Patrick Munsters to found Marie-Stella-Maris. The brand sells natural mineral water and sophisticated skincare products, donating a fixed amount to improving access to clean water worldwide.

Marie-Stella-Maris Care For Water

For each Marie-Stella-Maris product purchased, the brand donate to clean drinking water projects. For the natural mineral water, 5¢ per litre and for care products, 5% of annual turnover is donated. So far, over €800,000 has been donated to clean water foundations, and over 27,000 people have been afforded access to clean drinking water.

With a passion for design, Marie-Stella-Maris gains inspiration primarily from photography and art. They put the same amount of detail exhibited in the finest arts into everything they do, from product design to store interiors.
