One Device. Endless Impact.
It's easy to take for granted the importance of clean drinking water. Have you ever said, "I'll just have water, please" at a restaurant? Oh, just a free, refreshing, disease-free water. And if you're anything like me, you don't take a second at the drinking fountain to really appreciate the gift it offers. In fact, you probably think the people who do take that second are weird. But the lack of accessible clean drinking water is a global concern. We've partnered with MSR and would like your help to take a step towards a healthier world.
10% of all purchases of MSR Water Treatment Product will go towards the donation of SE-200 devices to communities in need.
Water is Life
One device can save thousands of lives each year.
Chlorine is the key to clean, safe water
Over half a million people around the world die from water-borne diseases every year. Sorry to hit you with that grim stat right off the bat, but it's a huge problem. Here's another stat: 100% of people need safe drinking water to live. That stat is more optimistic because it provides the solution to this problem. Get people safe water.

Get the MSR SE200 Community Chlorine Maker to low-resource communities.
Empower communities to control their own safe drinking water
The best way to get safe water to people in need is to give them the resources to make it. It's kind of like one of those "Give a man a fish vs teach a man to fish" situations. The MSR SE200 Community Chlorine Maker gives struggling communities all over the world the power to generate chlorine, which can be used to treat water. MSR's goal is to give 2,500 of these devices to those most in need by the end of the year. This will provide safe drinking water to half a million people.
For 45 years, MSR's technical engineering and manufacturing expertise have made their name synonymous with innovation and quality and set them apart as the industry leader in clean water research. Somewhere along the line they realized the huge impact their company could have on the developing world. Their Global Health team has been extending all of MSR's research, development and industry advancements to low-resource communities around the globe. Powered by some of the top scientists and engineers in the country, you can think of them along the same lines as the Super Friends or The Planeteers, except instead of super villains, they battle bacteria. They do all of their manufacturing in-house which gives them full control over every aspect of production so they can meet their own high quality standards. When Moosejaw had the opportunity to partner with MSR's Global Health team, you better believe we jumped at it.

MSR SE200™ Chlorine Maker
Water treatment made easy.
Salt, water, and a bit of power = safe water
Each MSR SE200™ can produce enough chlorine to treat up to 200 liters of water in five minutes. At one liter per person, that's safe drinking water for 200 people with each application. As you can see, I'm very good at math. All that is required is water, salt and a 12V battery (car or motorcycle battery, for example). Seeing as how I'm not very good at science though, I'll simply describe the process this device uses to make chlorine as magic.
You can do your part to get a MSR SE200™ Chlorine Maker out there creating safe water. Right now 10% of all purchases of MSR Water Treatment Product will go towards the donation of SE-200 devices to communities in need.
