Solutions for Life

Solutions for Life enhances our mission to conserve water and improve hygiene around the world through collaborations with NGOs (non-governmental organizations), global philanthropy and employee volunteerism. Through Solutions for Life, we are extending our expertise through out support of NGOs and projects that have meaningful impacts in the areas of:

  • Water Conservation and Protection: In less than 20 years, the world will need about 40 percent more water than today's accessible supply to maintain food production, generate electricity and provide clean drinking water. We leverage our resources and expertise to conserve life-sustaining water resources where we live and work.
  • Hygiene Education: Washing hands with soap is one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent disease. We share our passion and knowledge to educate individuals about water conservation and hygiene and inspire them to champion change in their communities.
  • Innovative Global Solutions: Despite significant advancements, water scarcity/quality and disease/infection continue to persist. Groundbreaking innovations play a critical role in solving these major global problems.

Solutions for Life is funded by Ecolab through the Ecolab Foundation.  Learn more at
