More than 2 billion people globally still do not have access to safe drinking water.  We believe that everyone shares the same basic human right to a standard for health and well-being and that without access to safe drinking water, this right cannot be met.  At CataLight, our goal is to make safe drinking water accessible for all.  To achieve this goal, we are developing a more effective water filter for families in developing communities.

Our Vision

Universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water.

Our Mission

To give families access to safe drinking water by developing a treatment solution that is:

  • effective at removing contaminants

  • easily used by anyone

  • designed specifically to integrate into day-to-day life

Our Solution

CataLight cartridges can be easily integrated within many different kinds of water storage containers.  With no complex maintenance required, using our filters is as easy as pouring dirty water in and getting clean water out.

Why Point-of-Use?

The water crisis is complex and solving it requires important systemic changes.  Development efforts toward building new infrastructure that gives people access to safe water is a crucial part of this, but it takes time to implement and we still have a long way to go.  Millions of people continue to die each year from waterborne diseases.  Point-of-use household solutions can be given to families now, keeping them safe from deadly waterborne diseases until permanent infrastructure is developed.
