Live consciously

The importance of sustainability

At Soma, sustainability is a part of every step. From the design of the filter to the sourcing of our materials, we keep our carbon footprint as low as possible.

Draws from nature

Charred coconut carbon and a plant-based casing -- our filter casing is compostable in commercial composting facilities.

Many municipal governments do not provide convenient composting services. Find a commercial composting facility or demand composting options from your local municipal waste management.

Packages Efficiently

Our packaging contains recycled contents and materials from certified Sustainable Forestry Initiative and PEFC sources.

Continue reusing and recycling your packaging.

Hydrates Responsibly

Drinking filtered water instead of buying plastic water bottles helps to reduce the world's carbon emission footprint and waste.

Did you know that 76.5% of plastic water bottles sold in 2006 ended up in landfills instead of being recycled?

Our processes

Beyond the product itself, our company policy is to select processes that are responsible and sustainable.

Support Local

Our main manufacturing site is one hour from our San Francisco headquarters. Closer to you means reduced air time and fewer CO2 emissions.

Public Transit

85% of our employees use public transit and communal charity: water-themed bikes are used for afternoon bike rides.

Reduce Waste

Our manufacturing sites and corporate facilities reduce, reuse, and recycle. Recycling and composting make up 67% of our in-house waste.

Consume Sustainably

We use sustainable kitchen products and recycled paper products in our corporate facilities, and stock our fridge with as much local organic produce as we can get our hands on.

Use Energy Efficiently

Manufacturing operates on a natural gas co-generation system. Our fulfillment center is ISO 140001-2004 certified for the performance of Environmental Management Systems and was awarded the 2012 Green Supply Chain Award.

This is just the start. We are constantly working to develop the most sustainable, energy-efficient product and process possible.
