Water Purification

Project Overview

Provides locally made ceramic water purifiers to over 1 million Cambodians. By filtering water instead of boiling it over a wood burning fire, these purifiers prevent 90,000 tonnes of carbon emissions and protect 450 hectares of Cambodian forest every year. That’s 320 football fields worth of protected habitat!
