Just a Drop to celebrate 20th anniversary and reaching 1.5 million people with safe water and sanitation at World Travel Market 2018

Just a Drop will celebrate its 20th anniversary and having reached 1.5 million people with safe water and sanitation at World Travel Market 2018 - the event where the charity was launched in November 1998 by Fiona Jeffery OBE, former WTM Chairman.

To mark the occasion, Just a Drop has partnered with Water-to-Go to create Just a Drop-branded eco-friendly water bottles, which provide a solution to two of the biggest problems facing the world at the moment: access to safe drinking water and the pollution caused by single-use plastics.  The water bottles will be sold exclusively on Just a Drop’s stand (BL4 on Main Boulevard, N4/S4) at WTM for the special anniversary price, ahead of launching online via Water-to-Go’s website. Free water refills will be available throughout WTM from water stations including at Affordable Car Hire, Air Europa, Atta – African Travel & Tourism Association, Discover the Palm Beaches, and Just a Drop’s stands.

On World Responsible Tourism Day, Wednesday 7th November, Just a Drop will host ‘The Changemakers: How Inspiration has Created Life Transforming Reality’. Speakers Holly Budge, Founder of How Many Elephants, Fiona Jeffery OBE, Founder of Just a Drop, Paras Loomba, Founder of Global Himalayan Expedition, and Ben Morison, Founder of The Flipflopi Project, will discuss how they realised their ideas and created organisations that are changing the world we live in for the better. The talk will be moderated by Anita Mendiratta. (Middle East & Africa Inspiration Zone - AF190, 2-3pm)
