July - December 2017
Thank you for your support of the Wine To Water Filter program. From July - December 2017 Wine To Water distributed 2,882 filters throughout the world, including places that were hard hit by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria; Over 31,000 lives were impacted as a result of Wine To Water's Filter Program.
The impact of the Wine To Water Filter Program has increased thanks to your support of a Wine To Water Filter Build event. This has allowed us to further strengthen our programs throughout the world, including Nepal, The Amazon and East Africa. We have also had the opportunity to increase our relief efforts around the world in places where natural and human caused disasters are all too common.
THANK YOU SITE Southeast for investing in the W|W Filter Program. We are grateful for your support!

The new candle filter will change the game of sustainable water filtration.
Check out a behind-the-scenes look into our latest project – the candle filter! While the Wine 2 Water team continues to improve upon this design, we wanted to give you a short first-look at what is going on in their R&D Lab. This new filter design is revolutionary when it comes to sustainable water filtration. With a smaller design, recipients of these filters won’t have to be concerned as much by the possibility of cracking or breaking their filters. They can also filter water faster, leading to greater amounts of clean water for cooking, cleaning, and much more!
This new design not only benefit its recipients, but greatly benefits the environment as well. Each filter is made using locally sourced clay from the Dominican Republic, sawdust, and colloidal silver. We even fire and fuel our kilns with spent sugar cane husks! The smaller design also means that we can use less material to package and transport filters to communities all over the world. Thank you for joining us in the fight to end the water crisis!
