Soma Water Filters Help You Nurture Sustainability in a Stylish Way

Soma Water Filters Help You Nurture Sustainability in a Stylish Way

It was just earlier this week when I had reviewed LifeStraw Go that had me dumbstruck because of its amazing natural water filtration features. But that was a product more specifically targeted for adventurers and mountaineers who often travel down areas with poor drinkable water supply. Today my focus is our home where we all have our own water filtration systems. Those of us who are more ecologically sound prefer natural water filtration systems but you will agree with me that most of them are either too bulky or come with filters you don’t know when to change or how to use. Sometimes, even the lid comes off when you try to pour water through it and that inevitably puts an end to using a water filter. The easier solution would be to get packaged drinking water in plastic bottles that will not bring up any such unwanted experiences whatsoever. But by doing so, are we really helping our lives come anywhere close to being sustainable? The answer is a big NO!

Plastic is one of the biggest source of environmental pollution, the largest amount of which is found in containers and packaging (yes, plastic water bottles to be exact!). In fact, according to statistics, only 9 percent of the total plastic waste generated in 2012 was recovered for recycling. It is said that 76.5% of plastic water bottles sold in 2006 ended up in landfills instead of being recycled. No, my intention is not to make this post turn up into a plastic pollution data research. What I want to convey is the fact that we need a proper solution in the world of indoor water filtration now. We all need something like the Soma Glass Water Filter.

Ecologically Sound Water Filter

As described by Eric Ryan, Co-Founder of Method, “The hardest thing to do in the world is to combine great design and sustainability into a killer consumer experience. And that’s what these guys have done.” What makes the Soma water filters unique is the way it has made the entire filtration system biodegradable with a design that’s elegant and blends beautifully with your standard home interiors.

It’s a filter you’ll love to have on the table and not hide in some corner, away from being noticed by others. The makers have made sure to construct the entire filtration system as a sustainable device. From the design to the filter, everything is ecologically sound with a special mention to the filter that’s biodegradable too.

Beautiful Glass Carafe Design

Soma water filters come in a beautiful German-engineered glass carafe design which can keep your water crisp and fresh without coming in contact with plastic. It’s shatter-resistant so you won’t break it easily. The cone, on the other hand, is made of BPA-free plastic which shows how dedicated the team has been in keeping your water consumption as pollution free as possible.

The filter is made from biodegradable materials such as coconut shells and a plant-based casing which have been proven to reduce aesthetic chlorine, taste and odor. You won’t have to worry about the filter’s lifespan as the subscription service will ensure you get a new filter every 60 days. This way, your 8 glasses per day will be fresh and far from being polluted. I agree to what the New York Times have called Soma “A welcome change to the status quo.”

Comes With a Filter Subscription Program

The carafe can hold up to 8-ounce glasses of water at a time and is 10.7 inches tall and 6.5 inches in diameter. You can easily fit it in the refrigerator whenever required. The filter can process up to 40 gallons of water which is about 2 months of usage for a regular consumer. So, all you need to do is choose one of Soma’s water filter subscription service starting from $49 and stretching up to $159.
