Labelled solution

Locally-produced water filters that both supply sustainable safe drinking water and reduce carbon emissions in Uganda.

Made from locally produced ceramic, Purifaayas allows Uganda and East Africa to have access to safe and pure water, without boiling it. This filtered water is cheaper than water boiled by fuel like charcoal or firewood.
