Carbon for Water Program

The Carbon for Water Program is a water treatment project with operations in the Western Province of Kenya. The water treatment project is donating and installing LifeStraw® Family water filters for Kenyan households. The water filters eliminate the need for Kenyan families to treat water by boiling it. This eliminates the use of wood as a fuel source and therefore avoids the production of GHGs. The program is the first water filtration project to be registered in the voluntary market.
