EcoAlberto

A River Runs Through It

El Alberto is a community nestled in the hills of a rural and arid area in Mexico. Through this beautiful cactus landscape runs a river polluted by the capital city’s waste. This single source of water supplies all the surrounding indigenous villages. The company EcoAlberto was created in this area to preserve and protect that source, filtrate the water and establish an innovative and customized distribution system. The water is delivered in big tanks to fill the smaller tanks of shops and schools. Those are meeting points where indigenous women sell this safe water to increase their income and promote healthy water and healthier hydration practices.
