0 ft 2 of fishing net recycled
Waves for Water
During a recent team trip to the South of Chile, we had an opportunity to partner with Waves for Water (wavesforwater.org) to run a clean water program in a small fishing village near Concepcion. We enjoyed learning about their simple and effective filters, and seeing for ourselves how easily the filters purify water. The locals were excited to see their murky drinking water, predominately collected from rain and truck delivery, transformed to clear refreshing water. We had a taste ourselves, and it was impressively refreshing! In total, we left behind twenty filters which will be used to purify drinking water for the families. We want to thank the Waves for Waters team for everything they do. We fully support their mission and tremendous work around the world!
