Soma Water Pitcher ReviewBy John Davis - December 9, 2016
Soma has created a sleek water pitcher that provides greener and better tasting water. Each Soma Water Pitcher includes a replaceable filter. The filter is sustainable, made of a coconut shell carbon, while the filter is made of a plant-based (sugar cane) plastic. The plastic is not only shatterproof, it’s BPA-free complemented by a sustainable white oak handle.
Using an ion exchange filter, Soma cleans your water naturally. Instead of using harsh chemicals, it uses all-natural plant-based materials. And while it’s green, it’s still mighty. One filter will clean up to 40 gallons of water and pull out contaminants such as:
In addition to being an earth-friendly product, Soma is on a mission “to improve life for everyone who drinks water…”
Not only are the creators focused on you and your water drinking experience, but they also want to help people in places where safe drinking water is limited. Every time a filter is purchased, a portion of the profit is donated to various charities that help provide water to people around the world.
Should You Buy a Soma?
Soma looks cool, it’s green, and even Oprah is a fan, calling the pitcher “Gilligan’s Island chic”. Soma is also part of Made To Matter , handpicked by Target. And finally, they are B-Corporation Certified by Business as a force of good. But underneath their lovey, transparent, organic, sustainable image, there must be a catch, right? Prepare yourself, because here’s the kicker – Soma is handwash only. You heard it here first people. If you don’t like to wash dishes, this is not the pitcher for you. That said, you shouldn’t have to wash it too often. I recommend washing it every time you change the filter.
But there is another gotcha; the pitcher only removes the four contaminants mentioned above. Compared to other pitchers, like Brita Infinity this would be considered “the norm”. The Infinity also removes Copper, Chlorine, Mercury, and Zinc, it also removes Cadmium. If you want to remove more water contaminants (Aluminum, Ammonia, Arsenic, TCE, Lindane, etc), you might want to opt for an under sink or whole home system.
Try it for Yourself
The Soma Water Pitcher has a 6-cup and 10-cup option. You can also purchase it with one filter, six prepaid filters, or twelve. If you are ready to give Soma a try, you can purchase the pitcher from Amazon. The 6-cup pitcher is available for $29, or you can purchase the 10-cup for $10 more. You can also purchase the pitcher in stores from Bed Bath and Beyond or Target.
In regards to long-term costs, you will need to purchase replacement filters. You can order 3-packs from Amazon for $27.
