Clean drinking water in Kenya

Reporter Grit Hofmann takes us to Kenya to show us an eco-friendly project where everyone involved stands to benefit. Swiss-Danish company Vestergaard Frandsen has delivered almost a million of its LifeStraw water filters in Kenya. The devices purify drinking water. That's why families no longer need wood to boil the water over a fire, thus protecting the remaining forests. Vestergaard Frandsen can in turn sell CO2 emissions certificates and earn money. It’s a win-win situation for residents, the company, and Kenya’s forests.
