An Australian bottled water manufacturer, Thankyou Water, has announced the rollout of a new sparkling water in its range.

As with its existing products, Thankyou Water says every bottle of the new Thankyou Water Lightly Sparkling will “provide at least one month of safe drinking water to someone in need”.

Thankyou Water is a company that describes itself as a ‘social enterprise’ and says it uses its profits to fund water projects in the developing world.

Consumers are able to see the impact of their Thankyou Water Lightly Sparkling purchases through ‘Track Your Impact’, a custom-designed reporting app that can be found at thankyouwater.org.

“At the heart of what we do is the idea of empowering Australians to change the world through a simple choice in their everyday lives. By expanding our product range, we aim to give Australians greater choice, and another reason to drink Thankyou Water,” said Daniel Flynn, Thankyou Water Founder and Managing Director.

“Every time Australians purchase a Thankyou Water product, it helps us to have an even greater impact on the lives of people in developing nations,” Mr Flynn said.

Thankyou Water Lightly Sparkling 500mL is now available in 7-Eleven Stores Australia-wide, along with the Company’s other products.

7-Eleven Australia’s Head of Marketing, Julie Laycock, said the Company is proud to work with Thankyou Water.

“Our business is a strong supporter of Thankyou Water and the excellent work the team do to provide safe water to people in developing nations. We are really pleased we can now provide our customers with a new sparkling water choice that can make a difference in the lives of others,” Ms Laycock said.
