FilterPure is an organization with a mission: Manufacture and
distribute an improved and inexpensive
"point of use" water filtration device which
is producible in developing countries.
FilterPure is a non-profit organization
(U.S. tax-exempt) and is committed to
providing safe drinking water to the at risk
populations of the developing world.
We use proven low-tech water purification
technology that is completely sustainable
and effective in developing countries.
Our strategy is to implement local and
sustainable enterprises that manufacture and
distribute effective and appropriate point
of use CPF. FilterPure has developed a
program based upon strategies of affordable
water filtration, sustainable enterprise,
and local education. The program has been
designed to be replicated worldwide.
Information on Filter Pricing
As you may know, FilterPure has independent factories in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Also, our use of nano silver in each filter, adds to the total cost of production. For years we have advertised our price per filter as $35. This price was NOT based on reality since we heavily subsidized the price with personal funds and earmarked donations from large donors. Therefore, we have decided to price the filters based on reality (silver prices, production costs and transportation costs).
Of course, we are dedicated to delivering a filter system to the underserved at the lowest price possible. Agencies and NGOS are free to give away or heavily subsidize their filters to those they distribute. You may contact us by email for more information on filter pricing.
