BANGA® Reverse Osmosis water filters convert contaminated water into clean, safe drinking water without electricity or batteries. The easy-to-use filters are a vital tool for some of the 780 million people who don’t have ready access to safe drinking water. This leaves them at risk for diarrhoeal disease, which kills more than 1.5 million people every year.
Safe drinking water is especially important for vulnerable groups, such as children under five, pregnant women and people living with HIV. BANGA® water filters also prevent cryptosporidiosis, a major cause of diarrhoeal illness in people living with HIV and children under five1.
BANGA® water filters comply with US Environmental Protection (EPA) 1987 Guide Standard and Protocol for Testing Microbiological Water Purifiers.
Each product in the BANGA® portfolio is designed for a specific situation where safe water is needed but not readily available. BANGA® offers specific products for international health and development as well as products sold to consumers for outdoor recreation, travel and daily hydration.
