Soma is the world’s first compostable water filter system that is made from coconut shell, vegan silk, and food-based PLA plastic. Designed by David Beeman, a top water filtration expert, this innovative water filter removes chlorine, heavy metals, and other contaminants from water. The sleek and minimal carafe design is also visually-pleasing with a beveled edge prevents spilling.

Soma also offers to deliver filters right to users’ doors every two months, so they will always replace them on time. The filter system is currently raising money through Kickstarter and selling its pitcher and filter for a donation of US$45. Check out the promo video for this sustainable water filter below.
