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.
Universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water.
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
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.
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.
