As a result, 26.3% of children worldwide are stunted and nearly 1,500 children die of diarrhea on a daily basis. Solution Nazava Water Filters manufactures the most affordable and safest household water filters, empowering households to purify their own well, tap or rain water. With a Nazava Water Filter, households can purify their well, tap or rain water without the need to boil or use electricity. The purified water is 9x cheaper than buying and 3x cheaper than boiling water, hence households can save over USD100 per year using the Nazava Water Filter. Nazava is based in Indonesia (the fourth most populous country in the world), but sells worldwide. To date, Nazava has provided access to safe drinking water to over 600,000 people, enabling them to reduce their water costs by USD5 million and thereby reducing 34,000 tons of CO2 emissions, which equals the use of 9,000 cars/year.
