Kohler's Clarity Brings Safe Drinking Water to the Masses

As an answer for the millions of people in the world without access to safe drinking water, Kohler has partnered with a selection of humanitarian aid groups to create Clarity. We spotted the streamlined filtration system while walking the trade show floor at the 2015 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Washington, D.C., in November. The lightweight system can clean up to 40 liters of water per day. Its vessel is divided into two parts: an 11-liter holding tank for unfiltered water atop a 12-liter reservoir for the clean water, separated by a ceramic filter and enough space to avoid re-contamination. The storage tank and dispenser are made from recycled plastic, and the filter has an estimated lifespan of one year. Check out the video above to learn more about the product.
