Filtration Update

10 likes

Hi Kickstarters (and Happy March)!

Since 2012, we have been determined to test the Soma water filter to the best standards, but also in a way that would demonstrate the most accurate every-day use capabilities. We are so excited to announce that Soma has passed the Gold Standard of water filtration! 

The Water Quality Association (WQA) tested Soma to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 requirements for materials safety, and chlorine, taste and odor reduction. We then reached out to PACE Analytical to test more specific contaminants both at EPA contaminant regulation levels and at NSF Standard 53 levels. The Soma water filter has been third-party verified to reduce lead, selenium and arsenic levels!

We hope to continue to test more contaminants moving forward, but this is a great start!

Thank-you so much for being patient with us through these early days. We are so happy to finally share the great news with you!

Raise your glass,

The Soma Team

Happy 2014!

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for being so patient! We can't believe a year has already gone by since we received funding from our Kickstarter backers! (Did we mention how great we think you are?!)

2013 was an exciting year, with product development and the launch of the Soma carafe. We learned a lot about starting a company, and developing a passionate team. A year later, we are eager to continue growing, and to extend the knowledge of the Soma brand.

While we want to continue expressing our gratitude to you, here are the updates you are looking for, regarding filter certification and lid functionality:

– The Water Quality Association (WQA) has officially announced that the Soma filter is tested to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 requirements for materials safety and chlorine, taste and odor reduction! We are currently undergoing more independent third-party testing to validate other more rigorous in-house filtration tests. We are working on revamping the website, so with that will come more updates and a better presentation of information. :)

– We have received a few messages regarding the functionality of the Soma lid. We are currently testing a sample set, to ensure that we fully comprehend any issues. Moving forward, we hope to address these problems that this small group customers may be experiencing.

As we continue through 2014, we hope to update you more often! In the meantime, if you have any questions please reach out to us at hello@drinksoma.com, or check out our support page!

The new charity:water carafe & Glitch Mob track

Hi all -- We launched our new charity:water carafe last thursday and could not be more excited about it! 

For every carafe sold, $12.50 will be donated to charity:water's life changing projects in Cambodia. Help us provide clean drinking water to every family in three Cambodian villages this holiday season! http://charitywater.drinksoma.com

In addition, the Glitch Mob released a new track last week. It was made with field recordings from Soma's trip to Ethiopia and inspired by the kind of life-changing charity: water projects Soma is funding. The video and track are both amazing. http://glitchmob.drinksoma.com  

Help spread the love by sharing and checking out our new charity:water carafe and Glitch Mob's track! 

Soma is now available for everyone!
