Sift Filtration Systems
SIFT provides local artisans with the molds necessary to create long lasting, economically sustainable solutions to the water crisis. Instead of relying on foreign aid, village potters use donated clay molds and local materials to produce specialized clay filters, allowing them to create and sell these designs based on the needs of the people. The product series consists of Droplet, an immersion filter, and Distill, a pour-in filter.
