World Water Day

Today is International World Water Day!
This year, this day is under the common theme “Nature-based solutions for the water”.
The aim of the UNESCO World Water Day is to draw attention to the importance of water as a livelihood for humanity.

And what fits better to the topic than our biosand filter?
Down to the present day, we have already set well over 2000 of these filters in the northern mountainous regions of Thailand, so that families living there are supplied with good, purified drinking water!
