The Story

Help us provide clean water to regrow Puerto Rico.

It's no secret that Puerto Rico is in the midst of a dire situation. People are suffering and struggling to get the most basic human necessity there is: clean drinking water. Currently 44% of the island's residents have no access to clean, drinkable water—forcing people to turn to unclean and unsafe methods of collecting water, exposing them to a host of dangerous and deadly diseases and contaminants. That's where Molecule comes in.


How we are helping:
We've created a Molecule Water Filling Station, which can provide up to 3000 gallons of purified drinking water, per station, per day—filtering a variety of water ranging from city, well, and even raw river water. We're working on sending a solar and battery-powered Molecule Water Filling Station where people can come and collect clean, safe water—free of charge. We need donations to help us build our filter, ship it to Puerto Rico, and build infrastructure around it so people can utilize it. When you choose to donate to the Molecule Project, know that every penny of your donation is being used to provide a real solution, to real people, in a real crisis. 


What we're working toward now:

At the moment, we're working on getting our first filling station, likely to be built in Cuidadela. Our overall goal is to introduce 10 filling stations to the island to be used while Puerto Rico gets back on its feet. 


What we're working toward in the future:

Our plan for Puerto Rico doesn't stop once the crisis is over. Puerto Rico relies mostly on bottled water for drinking, but without a recycling program that means they face a problem with plastics in landfills. By implementing a Molecule filling station in all 87 municipalities of the island, we can dramatically cut down on plastic waste in the island. By setting a small, monthly fee for filling services we can ensure that citizens from all over have access to unlimited amounts of clean and safe drinking water. We're committed to regrowing Puerto Rico, not just for today but for the future. Will you help us?
