About Belu

Belu is a B2B social enterprise, working with corporate offices and the UK’s hotel, restaurant, catering sector to deliver the right water offering for businesses, with the lowest carbon footprint possible through supplying water filtration systems, bottled mineral water, refillable bottles and carafes.

Belu invests 100% of its profits into the charity WaterAid to help reach the 884 million people worldwide who don’t have clean water to drink, and the 2.3 billion people without access to a decent toilet. Access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene enables communities to take the first steps out of poverty.

Belu is one of several social enterprises in partnership with Zepbrook wholesalers allowing businesses in and around London to easily buy their office refreshments and supplies from social enterprises.

Belu began with a simple idea: that there was a better way to do business. That through business, it could do more than make money. It could help solve some of the world’s problems too. Belu is a values-led business. The first of its values is to think environment-first, always. In water, their mission is to show that a business can deliver an environmentally improved and sustainable proposition in the market through offering the UK’s HORECA and corporate sectors, a range of water service products with the lowest carbon footprint possible.

Belu invests 100% of its net profits into WaterAid, the international development charity determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation. Belu has given over £4 million to WaterAid, transforming over 270,000 lives worldwide, and is committed to supporting the achievement of Global Goal 6 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Belu. Made with Water and Ethics.
