More than 1 billion people lack access to a safe water source. Philip Wilson created EcoFiltro to solve the growing water crisis through simple and affordable in-home water filters. EcoFiltro`s water filters are environmentally friendly: they are made from locally sourced materials including clay and sawdust. Studies confirmed that using them reduces gastrointestinal disease by 50%. Since its founding years ago, the social enterprise has sold dozens of thousand of these filters throughout Guatemala.
Philip Wilson has over twenty years experience as an entrepreneur in the United States and Guatemala, and firmly believes that the world’s most pressing problems can be solved by applying business practices to social challenges. He is also the founder and CEO of SolucionWeb, the leading web and social media services company in Guatemala. The goal of Ecofiltro is to reach no less than 1 million families.
