A safe drinking water solution
One of the biggest problems in the developing world is access to safe, reliable drinking water. The charity organization Water is Life dedicates its energies to providing this most basic of necessities.
It’s latest project The Drinkable Book combines a variety of technologies to make safe drinking water accessible in developing countries. On each of its tear-out pages, water safety tips are written in various languages in food-grade ink, providing much-needed information to people in areas where access to education about such matters may be low.
Each book comes packaged in a 3D printed box, which converts into a filtration tray. When you tear out one of the pages and slip it into the tray, you can use it to filter water.
Each page is impregnated with silver nanoparticles which kills 99.9% of the harmfull bacteria as the water runs through. It has proven effective at destroying bacteria that cause diseases such as cholera, E.coli and typhoid.
