The Soma Pitcher is made of shatter-proof, BPA-free plastic. Designed to look stunning on your table and fit perfectly in your fridge, the pitcher holds 10-cups (80 oz) of crisp, refreshing filtered water.
Easy-to-fill and featuring Soma’s unique filter made of coconut shell carbon and plant-based casing that removes chlorine and improves taste. And for every Soma filter purchased, clean drinking water is donated to people in need through Soma’s nonprofit partner, charity: water. Raise your glass with the Soma water filter.
From the Manufacturer
We believe clean drinking water is a basic human right. That’s why we’re a proud sponsor of charity: water and partner with them in their mission to bring safe drinking water to over 750 million people without access to it. Every time you buy a Soma filter, we donate to charity: water projects. These contributions go directly to sustainable, community-owned water projects in developing countries.
We want our customers to feel good about their water, so we strive to find ways to not only create more sustainable business practices, but to find solutions to the global water crisis. As a certified B-corporation, impact is a critical part of Soma's DNA. We infuse it into everything we do, from our product design and supply chain to our company culture and partnerships.
Soma's German-engineered glass carafe is shatter-resistant, and keeps water crisp and fresh. It holds 48 oz (6 cups) of fresh filtered water.
The Soma filter features coconut shell carbon and a plant-based casing so you can feel good about your water. Each filter is effective for 40 gallons, or about two months.
The Water Quality Association has tested and certified the Soma filter to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 requirements for the reduction of chlorine, taste and odor.
Because polluting water while manufacturing products that enhance water wouldn’t make any sense at all.

Smart. Beautiful. Sustainable.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
One night during a dinner party, our founder, Mike del Ponte was hesitant to put his cheap plastic “other brand” water filter on his nicely set table. Mike decided to pour his filtered water into a glass wine decanter. Unfortunately (or fortunately) as he did, the lid of the water pitcher fell off, causing water to gush all over the kitchen floor. As he cleaned up the mess, he thought, “Why can’t someone create a water filter that’s beautifully designed, easy to use, and made of sustainable materials?” Soma was born. The rest is water under the bridge.
What makes your product special?
Soma is the only water filter with 100% plant-based filtration. Distinguished by its clean, modern design, Soma also gives back by donating clean drinking water to those in need through charity: water.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
The most difficult part of designing Soma's first product, the Carafe, was finding glass that is both lightweight and durable. We discovered borosilicate glass by the famous German glass maker Schott. Though it took over a year, this discovery is what makes the Carafe a joy to use.

My next issue is the filter itself. I remain highly suspicious of how well this filter actually works. I have had other water filters in the past, and currently use a Berkey filter. It seems to be a general rule that gravity filters take some time to actually do their thing. The water has to trickle through a charcoal or other medium a slow enough pace to adequate remove metals, chlorine, bacteria etc. I certainly question a filter like this that appears to filter very quickly. Too quickly. About as fast as you pour the water in, it comes out the holes in the bottom of the filter. Although I never took the time or money to do a water analysis on the finished product, based on taste, it did not do an adequate job. Perhaps that is an unfair assessment, as I may be tasting something they never claimed to be able to filter out, such as chlorine. But it only serves to back up my already existing suspicion. They state that testing is currently being performed but insinuate that they are limited from publishing just how effective it really is,but I highly doubt that is the case.
That brings me to support. You will notice that there is no phone number to call for support. I found one with some searching, and the recording states that no messages left will be returned, and directs to the website contact form. I tried that, and two weeks later, no response. And if you look at the warranty policy, the only acceptable conditions for a return, based on Soma's website, are that it has to be within 30 days of purchase, and it has to be unopened. That protects you from an incorrect order, but does not offer any protection if anything at all is wrong with the product. It certainly doesn't allow for a return based on a mold problem.
Based on these factors: mold, inadequate customer support, poor return policy, and insufficient filtering, I would caution anyone from purchasing this product.
I moved down to one star for customer service. Just obnoxious. I checked to make sure the parts were dishwasher safe, I put the ones that were in and the plastic came out yellow. I emailed, only to be run through a back and forth with the rep asking me to get a toohbrush and scrub it and send many images. after I completed all the requested nonsense, they said sorry we only offer a 1 year warranty. I was at 13 months. Bye.
1. It looks pretty. It's glass and I could serve people with this if I wanted to, the plastic jugs from competitors just look tacky.
2. Perhaps the most important reason, and the reason I bought this thing after seeing it at my friend's house. The purifying dripper is easily removed, which means that you don't have to wait for the batch to seep through to pour. This is great for all those times when you fill up the purifying and then 2 seconds later realize that right, you needed to fill the coffee pot, or when you need a lot of water for cooking or something and you need the water peu en peu. the removable siv also means you can use it with a different container... like a coffee maker. just saying.
Anyway, I love this product, I like it so much I excused it being half an inch too tall meaning I couldn't fit it under my tap, again removable siv helps with this. I've had a ton of these different ones, I can't stand the taste of US water and this is a great product.

The size is perfect because if it was any bigger it would be too heavy for most to lift, as it is, it's just right. Love it!
