We are a social enterprise convinced that safe drinking water must be accessible to everyone in the world. We work every day to develop new technologies that allow us to provide clean water at an affordable price.
Faircap’s idea was born on a trip to the Amazon jungle of Peru in 2014. Where, despite being in the middle of the rain forest, in such a pristine environment, full of tropical life and nature, the water of rivers and small streams were not suitable for human consumption due to its contamination. The effects of civilization have already caused a negative impact.
Mercury contamination from gold mining in rivers, streams, is a big problem and, also, there is found coliform bacteria from sewage in human settlements built in the middle of the rain forest. This caught our attention and we decided to make a change; Is in this magical place where the idea of creating a low-cost portable water filter was born.
We want to thank everyone who believe in this project and who have supported us in one way or another.
