Who is Marie-Stella-Maris?

Marie-Stella-Maris is an Amsterdam-based lifestyle brand that believes everyone should have access to a source of clean drinking water. By offering natural care products and natural mineral water, we are dedicated to contribute. For each product you purchase, we donate a fixed amount towards clean drinking water projects worldwide.

"Access to safe and clean drinking water for everyone, everywhere."

How it all began

It all started with Patrick Munsters. After a successful career in fashion he wanted to inspire people to consume more (social) consciously. 

UN Resolution 64/292 - The Human Right to Water and Sanitation.

When in 2010 the United Nations declared access to clean drinking water and sanitation to be a human right, and also called upon international organizations to provide financial resources to help developing countries provide clean drinking water and sanitation for everyone, Munsters got inspired. 

A year later, in 2011, he and Carel Neuberg (background in commercial and board positions in leading ICT companies) founded Marie-Stella-Maris to be able to contribute directly to water-related issues worldwide. 

Why Water and Care Products?
Water, sanitation and hygiene are the basis elements behind Marie-Stella-Maris. To realize access to clean drinking water, it is of great importance to also focus on sanitary services and hygiene. The direct link between clean drinking water and hygiene has inspired Marie-Stella-Maris to introduce natural care products (2014) in addition to their assortment in mineral waters.

How it works
1. You buy & contribute

For each Marie-Stella-Maris product you purchase, a fixed amount goes to clean drinking water projects. For our natural mineral water we calculate a contribution of 5 ct/L and for our care products we calculate 1 per product.

2. We calculate & donate

Each month the total contribution of all the sold products is carefully calculated. This amount will be directly transferred to the Marie-Stella-Maris Foundation.

3. Together we can make a difference

Thanks to your contribution we can make a difference. With all supported clean drinking water projects we already provide 17.000 people with access to clean drinking water.
