Mama Glow Obsession: SOMA Water Filter
Pregnant women need plenty of water, but both tap and bottled water can contain contaminants that may be harmful to your (and your baby’s) health. Your best bet for getting the safest water possible is to drink filtered water and to filter your own tap water.
The water contaminants you want to avoid include: Lead, arsenic, perchlorate hexavalent chromium, chlorine, and chloramine, nitrates and nitrites from agriculture run off, and water treatment contaminants such as trihalomethanes. Yes, all of this could be in a single glass of water. But the good news is that there are affordable water filtration options available to you. While more expensive filters generally remove more pollutants, even an inexpensive pitcher filter can significantly reduce the levels of some key contaminants. We are obsessed with the Soma water filter.
Soma is the perfect water filter with a sleek design. Soma was created when founder Mike Del Ponte tried to filter water in a wine decanter. This proved impractical, but it led him to the idea of a beautifully designed water filter that is also easy to use and made from sustainable materials. Soma believes that, “Life is better when the things surrounding us are intelligently designed, visually inspiring and do the job they’re supposed to do flawlessly.”
The Soma filters are made of biodegradable materials, including coconut shells, silk, and a plant-based casing. The base is a shatter-proof glass so no worries about dropping your filter! The filters are proven to reduce aesthetic chlorine, arsenic, lead and taste and odor. Each Soma filter holds 6 glasses of water and fits comfortably in a refrigerator. Every two months new filters are delivered. Additionally, Soma has partnered with one of our favorite organizations, Charity: water, so that every soma filter purchased includes a donation to the charity that provides clean water to far reaching regions of the world. There is a limited edition yellow carafe specifically for the partnership with Charity: water.
