The World of Difference We Create Together

What started with one charity partner in 2008, has become 140 partners. Our commitment to using water filters to save lives is unwavering in light of the stark need. Hundreds of millions of people around the world are still without clean water. This work feeds our hearts and souls.

The three main categories our products are used are:
·Disaster Relief
·Refugee Camps

The Transformational programs have the longest impact potential. These programs typically allow for thorough training and maintenance lessons that can allow our water filters to last 10+ years. Disaster relief programs often happen too fast for sufficient training but offer the rapid response needed for water needs in emergency situations. In refugee camp situations, the filters offer effective solutions while remaining highly portable.
