Not only has Stella Artois renewed its partnership this year with Water.org to end the global water crises, the campaign also introduces two additional donation mechanisms, to significantly increase the reach and scale of the initiative.
New in 2017, for every six- or 12-pack of Stella Artois sold in select retail stores, Stella Artois will provide six or 12 months of clean water for one person in the developing world. For every pint or bottle of beer sold in select bars and restaurants, Stella Artois will provide one month of clean water for one person in the developing world.
Since its 2015 inception, Stella Artois has helped provide more than 800,000 people in the developing world with access to five years of clean water through the sale of more than 225,000 Limited-Edition Chalices, and by directly donating more than $3 million to Water.org.
Visit Stella Artois for ways to get involved. Founded by Matt Damon, Water.org seeks to help provide 3.5 million people with long-term, sustainable access to water by 2020.

Lufthansa will be the first airline worldwide to use a range of different settings for the on-board lighting which are designed to fit with the day and night-time biorhythms of their passengers. Any passengers who have ever traveled across a number of time zones will know the problem - your body clock gets out of sync. With the introduction of Lufthansa's new A350-900, it has now for the first time become possible to work with and fit with the biorhythms of the passengers by providing the right type of light at the right time. Following on from the A350-900, Lufthansa will also be re-fitting its Boeing 747-800s with the new lighting system.
The use of a range of lighting settings is based on findings from research in the field of Chronobiology and on known effects of our day and night-time biorhythms. Lufthansa has developed these various lighting moods in collaboration with lighting designers from Kardorff Ingenieure in Berlin - "Our focus is on passengers' needs when it comes to selecting the type of light to be used. We are thus able to create a pleasant atmosphere which can significantly improve the passengers’ feeling of well-being," explains Professor Volker from Kardorff.
As of 10 February, Lufthansa will be stationing the first ten Airbus A350-900 aircraft in Munich. The first destinations served will be Delhi and Boston.
