Earth Day 2021
Every year since 1970, Earth Day has not only brought the world's attention to the environmental issues the Earth is facing but also to promote an inclusive approach to confronting the challenges we face in humanity including actively supporting conscious consumerism. This Earth Day, Epic Water Filters is proud to support a powerful and provocative new short film by Jayaprakash Bojan & Dan Ng, a Singapore based wildlife film maker, that looks to remind us of our collective responsibility in looking after our precious home - Planet Earth.
Given the immense challenges we have faced over the last year from the ongoing pandemic, there has never been a more important time to reset our behaviour and bring conscious consumption to the forefront of our everyday lives. And if there is one thing we ask you to do today is to watch this amazing film, be inspired to make changes in your life and share it with your friends and family to do the same.
We are proud to sponsor this film and we hope that together we can make a real difference for our children and the many future generations to come.

Plastic pollution is an ongoing and huge issue for the beaches of Singapore and Epic Water Filters is proud to announce partnerships with two very important social enterprises here - The Litter Club and The Ocean Purpose Project - two amazing groups of people dedicated to education and behavioral change in the way we look at single use plastic and the impact on our environment.
Not only does water surround us everywhere in Singapore, it quenches us, it nourishes us and is at the very heart of our personal heath and wellness. It is, without doubt, the fabric of life. Yet still we pollute our waterways and our oceans, and single use plastic remains the biggest challenge in protecting our environment.
Both TLC and OPP work tirelessly to clean up Singapore's beautiful shoreline, educate Singaporeans on the impact plastic is having on our local environment and help offer solutions to support behavioral change to end plastic pollution.
Steps in the right direction.
Over the weekend our Epic team joined The Litter Club & the Ocean Purpose Project in their monthly beach clean ups.
As we know by now - the sea’s currents create vortexes trapping plastics, and in the collection are plastic drinking straws and other single use items containing plastics that cannot be broken down so easily. It’s almost like an archeological trip, you never know what you are going to find, and you’re almost always shocked with what and how much you do find at the end of the day…
