Clay water filters to avoid plastic
The clay water filter, made by local craftsmen, can be found on every market and in many Brazilian homes. Designed in two parts, you simply pour water into the first container, which then flows into the second container and is filtered by a ceramic block at the bottom of the filter. The mixture of clay and ceramic filters out all impurities, so all you have to do is serve yourself and enjoy!
These filters come in a range of sizes to suit all family needs. During previous stopovers, we’ve already seen similar alternatives around the world, all different in shape, but each using a natural material for its filtering properties. The gargoulette or earthenware jug in France, the ceramic filter in Guatemala, the clay carafe in Morocco, the earthenware carafe in Lebanon – all these natural solutions make it possible to avoid plastic consumption, while having a positive impact on the environment and our health.
