H2OCarib and its parent partner have made accessible the most affordable, the world's first "Folia Filters" throughout the Caribbean Islands and Latin America. Our vision is to reach the 1.8 billion people who consume microbiologically contaminated drinking water as well as the 2 billion people who pay the poverty penalty: overpaying in time, energy, or money to obtain safe drinking water. Lack of clean water is catastrophic for public health: diarrheal illnesses kill more than 500,000 children a year.
H2O ™ kill waterborne pathogens at a price that is affordable to even those who make $1-10/day. Our filter papers are designed to fit into either a regular plastic funnel or our Keystone Funnel™. The Keystone Funnel™ allows users to walk away and leave a 2 liter bottle of dirty water to drain through a Folia Filter into any household water container including a soda bottle or jerry can. The Keystone Funnel is designed to be simple to use, effective, and culturally appropriate, minimizing customers' setup time and not requiring them to buy a special water bottle.
