Soma

Soma makes high-design, sustainable water filters that are delivered via subscription.

Soma’s glass carafe houses a 100% biodegradable filter, which is composed of charred Malaysian coconut shells, silk, and plant-based plastic. To ensure that the water stays fresh, replacement filters are delivered via subscription. Additionally, through Soma’s partnership with charity: water, a portion of every filter sold donates clean water to someone in need.

In December 2012, Soma raised $100,000 in 9 days on Kickstarter, reaching an eventual total of $147,000 by campaign’s end. Fast Company named Soma the “#1 design story of 2012” and Inc. Magazine called Soma one of “the most audacious companies of 2013.”
