According to the Facebook page for Life Pure Water, Simon is an ex-investment banker who became “appalled by the growing distance between rich and poor. I felt that water was a human right and wanted to explore why we let it happen when fixing it as relatively easy.” Drop4Drop is supported by British Eastenders actor Sid Owen, who has been Simon's friend for 20 years, and the comedian Stephen Fry.

Konecki also recently admitted to a strange nickname he has. He is often referred to as Swampy. When asked about it, he said:

When I was in the City they used to call me Swampy, after that kid who tunnelled under Manchester Airport runway. Probably due to my long hair and Leftie views. [8]

Konecki had also recently been asked which celebrity he would hire if he could, and he responded saying, "Snoop Dogg – to answer the phones with his dulcet tones." [9]
