The

Problem

The lack of clean and affordable drinking water is a worldwide problem.

For the world’s poor, clean water is a basic necessity that is often not available.

Well developed countries are hardly better, where the available drinking water can often be unpleasant or unsafe.

 

 COMMERCIALLY BOTTLED WATER IS NOT AN EFFECTIVE SOLUTION.

Expensive

Even in poor countries, this can cost between US$1 and US$0.20 per liter.

Often, 25% of a family’s gross income goes to bottled water.

In Mexico, the market for bottled water exceeds US$8 billion per year.

Environmental damage

Trucking bottled water from large bottlers fills the roads with diesel trucks and the air with pollution.

Plastic water bottles fill landfills and the oceans.

Finding solutions outside bottled water is necessary.
Making purification systems affordable and reliable is the challenge.
