We touch a sleek stainless steel handle and safe drinking water fills our pots and glasses. We can’t possibly imagine what it’s like for so many people around the world who have to walk miles each day just to collect the precious water they need to survive.
That’s why BLANCO is a proud supporter of Water for People – a charitable organization that ensures sustainable clean drinking water for all people. It’s also why we are fully committed to environmental and humanitarian manufacturing practices.

Saving the World – One Kitchen at a Time
Here are some great earth-friendly tips from BLANCO’s Design Council.
“On an individual basis, it’s often easier to modify our behavior than it is our environment. Use the kitchen to further an eco-friendly lifestyle by shopping smarter and throwing away less. Each year we throw away 40% of purchased food.”
“Look good and feel great by reducing your consumption of red meat and poultry.” If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week, the carbon dioxide savings would equal taking more than half a million cars off U.S. roads. (Environmental Defense Fund)
“Selecting new furniture can be fun and earth friendly at the same time. Look for latex foam, cotton, wool, linen or fabrics that have been minimally treated with chemical dyes or coatings. Extend your green efforts by buying antique or secondhand furniture.”
