Folia Water has created the world’s first consumer goods water filter: Folia Filters™. Our global 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. Folia Filters™ 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. Folia Water’s customer base comprises an esteemed group of nonprofits, church groups, water charities, Rotary groups, universities, and small business owners in over 40+ countries around the globe. Currently, Folia Water is scaling up paper production, manufacturing operations, and exploring new product features. We aim to promote human welfare through innovation to reduce waterborne disease, one Folia Filter™ at a time.
