Ceramic Water Filters


Today as I was driving I listened to an old podcast from GlobeShakers from the Stanford Center for Social Innovation, the guest speaker being Don Gould speaking about Pure Water for All.

In the interview Don describes a microfranchise model for manufacturing and distributing the ceramic water filters. It sounds like a great model: using locally available materials, creating jobs for local communities with a tremendous social return on investment. This interview was back in 2005, does anyone have an update on their project?

Pure Water for All has an update from August on their website (http://www.purewaterforall.org/news.htm).
Very interesting. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
