  • Carbon offsets are purchased to support the development, production and staff training at the Hydrologic facilities 
  • Water filters are available for the community to purify water and avoid illness and diseases caused by poor sanitation or untreated water
  • Water filtration systems eliminate the need to purify water by boiling, reducing demand for firewood or gas
