Bothell, WA- HaloSource has entered into a new partnership with the pioneers in the water purification industry; Eureka Forbes. This relationship aims to support CSR projects in India and also contribute to HaloPure water purification product sales for HaloSource.
Eureka Forbes Ltd. is the leader in the water purification market with a 53% share of all water purification devices in the country. With this level of leadership, it is not surprising that EFL has partnered with HaloSource in wanting to contribute to lower classes and small towns in peri urban India by offering non-electric storage purifiers at comparatively lower costs. By 2015, it is estimated that 334 million Indians will lack access to safe drinking water. In order to improve these figures, EFL had in recent years teamed up with NGOs such as World Vision or Oxfam to increase access to clean safe water in rural communities and as part of disaster relief efforts.
HaloSource has joined Eureka Forbes to help expand access to clean, safe, drinking water to Indians by donating a percentage of HaloPure patented water purification bead technology as a percentage of their overall sales volume. This initiative is a win-win for both companies and for the broader community of households in India that benefit from these corporate investments in communities, especially rural communities, that lack access to clean water.
