Soma was born one dark and foggy night in San Francisco a dinner party. Unwilling to place a cheap plastic water filter on his nicely set table, Mike decided to pour the filtered water into a beautiful glass wine decanter. Nice idea Mike. Unfortunately (or fortunately), the lid of the water pitcher fell off causing water to spill all over the kitchen floor. As Mike cleaned up the mess, he thought, “Why can’t someone create a water filter that’s beautifully designed, easy to use, and made of sustainable materials?” The foggy clouds parted, a company was born, and the rest is water under the bridge.
The Soma glass carafe is custom made in Germany., constructed of shatter resistant borosilicate lab glass. The carafe is light weight, durable, and crystal clear. It holds 48 ounces, or six 8-ounce glasses of water.
The Soma water filter cartridge was designed by David Beeman, one of the leading water filtration experts. The cartridge does not contain any petroleum-based plastic. It is made of coconut shell carbon, silk, and a plant-based casing. The Soma water filter is effective against chlorine taste and odor from water. It was tested by the Water Quality Association and PACE Laboratories to NSF standards.
