Welcome to Run for Clarity 2018

Double the Distance, Double the Impact

In 2017, Kohler associates met and exceeded the challenge to run 40,075 km, the perimeter of the Earth, and 20,000 lives were impacted through the donation of Clarity Water Filters. This year, join your fellow associates in the challenge to run a total of 80,125 km, twice the perimeter of the Earth. When the goal is achieved, 40,000 people will receive the gift of safe water – achieved through the distribution, training, and support of Clarity Water Filters around the globe. Please sign in and keep checking back on the website to see the distance accumulated and the progress towards our goal of getting safe water to please who need it most.

Run for Clarity

Run for Clarity is a global Stewardship program for all Kohler associates at all Kohler locations. The goal is to raise awareness about the need for safe water around the world and how Kohler Clarity is part of the solution.

Choose one of the following ways to run:
1) Run in an event organized at your Kohler location
2) Run in an event organized by an outside organization within your community
3) Run individually

Participation needs to take place between 1 June and 31 October 2018. Associates who choose to participate individually or in an event not organized by Kohler will be asked to register their miles below and upload proof of distance. This can be a photo of a registration form, certificate of completion, or photo of your fitness tracking device. Up to four additional family members can be added in the same registration.

Once the goal is reached, Kohler Co. will partner with Connect for Water to provide safe water for 40,000 people through the distribution, training, and support of Clarity Water Filters.

Keep checking back on the website to see the distance accumulated and the progress towards our goal of getting safe water to those who need it most.

Associates can also make a donation directly to our global partner, Connect for Water – connectforwater.org/runforclarity to get Clarity Water Filters into the households that need it most.

Clarity Water Filters

Safe water. For all.

Kohler has a long history of product design and manufacturing that seamlessly blends form and function. Now, we are bringing our expertise to WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) initiatives worldwide to help solve health and hygiene problems, such as limited access to safe drinking water.

In our research into providing safe drinking water to all, we realized there was a tremendous opportunity to improve both the performance and design of the water filters currently available in developing nations. So we challenged our industrial designers and engineers to create a better filter. We believe they did just that with the KOHLER Clarity system.

KOHLER Clarity is about solving a problem.

KOHLER Clarity is incredibly simple to use and maintain. Backed by Kohler’s commitment to quality, it’s made with Kohler’s philosophy of fusing design and technology. And, most important, it will provide safe drinking water for people all over the planet.

  • Filters approximately 40 liters per day
    1. -enough for a small family
  • Filters over 2 liters per hour
  • 23 liters total capacity
    1. -(11 L dirty, 12 L clean with safe storage)
  • Easy to assemble and clean
  • Nestable for shipping as individual filters or in bulk

We need your help getting the filters into the hands of the people who need them most.

We have leveraged our means, materials and expertise to design and build a better water filtration system. But we need your help in getting them to the people who need safe drinking water the most. Together, we can help empower people to take water treatment into their own hands — bringing health, happiness and hope to everyone through the fundamental force of water.

“Business success doesn’t matter much if we can’t say we left the world a better place than we found it.” -David Kohler President and CEO
