Soma creates water filters that are not only effective and functional but are aesthetically works of art. Their products keep your water clean, while they’re charitable efforts make sure others can enjoy safe water too.
The History of Soma
Soma was started in 2013 by Mike Del Ponte, with the goal of creating a better process for water filtration and was able to get his vision off the ground through a successful Kickstarter campaign. For Del Ponte, the outpouring of support meant that the public was looking for the kind of product that he wanted to create; a water filter that looked great, worked great and was made to be both socially and environmentally responsible.
Today, Soma has expanded to make not only filters, but also pitchers, carafes, mugs, and bottles. It is a Certified B Corporation that is committed to balancing purpose with profit.
Soma Company Mission
Soma is dedicated to creating the very best products possible, all while doing good by people and the planet. Filters are built to eliminate a wide array of contaminants, including chlorine, copper, mercury and zinc.
Soma doesn’t just create great bottles, it does it the right way. Social responsibility is a part of everything that Soma does and a percentage of all proceeds go to charities that are working to end the global water crisis. As a part of their effort, every Soma employee that starts their own fundraising campaign receives a 100 percent match from the company. In addition, emissions are offset through conservation-based forestry and its supply chain partners are held to extremely high ethical standards. Every part of the product, down to the packaging uses post-consumer waste and recyclable materials whenever possible.
