Isla Urbana is a company that provides a system for capturing and filtering rainwater to make it potable. Learn about the company’s origins and how the idea for the system came from a design to use the rainfall in Mexico City to provide clean water to families in need. The system is inspired by existing technologies but has been redesigned to be more affordable and easy to install in Mexican households. The company also engages in community outreach to educate people about the benefits and convenience of rainwater harvesting and to help them install the system in their homes. A demonstration of the filtering process shows how accessible the system is.
