Folia Water:The World first water filter sold as mass market grocesry stores that ensures unversal access to safe drinking water for emerging countries

Folia is a triple bottom line company addressing people, planet, and profits: we use our patented coating for paper to make ourlow cost anti microbial water filter paper for safe drinking water purpose. Folia Water makes our paper into a 20-cent antimicrobial water purifier packaged like a simple coffee filter: the world’s first water purifier that costs pennies and not dollars. At 20 cents, each filter provides 20 liters of safe, germ-free water at the same penny per liter as other water purifiers that are sold as $40 appliances. However, the 2.1 billion people worldwide that have germs in their drinking water cannot afford to invest in expensive water appliances.  Our water purifier is instead sold as a razor-razor blade model through grocery stores where 100% of these consumers shop every day, collectively spending $3T on groceries.
