Convenient, reusable, and designed for dropping in any water bottle, hydration pack, pet drinking bowl, coffee maker or small water container up to three liters, the GoPure Pod introduces the first-ever, truly portable tap water purification process in an easy-to-use consumer product. The GoPure Pod constantly cleans and enhances potable water for peace of mind and taste satisfaction everywhere you go through the patented technology, PuriBloc™.

“We are very excited to partner and support such a recognized and trusted organization like 1% for the Planet,” says Bloc Enterprises CEO Kent Atherton. “We see it as an essential part of our business to support brands and organizations that put the environment first.“

"Our member companies have donated more than $150 million to our environmental nonprofit partners to date. Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 3% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. Our members lead with purpose and commitment, characteristics that consumers support. We're excited to welcome GoPure to our global network," says Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
