If only there was a simple and effective solution to provide clean water for the 780 million people around the world who don't have access to this basic right. Nonprofit WATERisLIFE is on the way to making this a reality with the ingenious Drinkable Book - a book whose pages can actually purify water.
Each page of the book is coated with silver nanoparticles and when water is passed through it, 99.9% of the bacteria are killed, resulting in clean and safe drinking water. Once a page of the book has been torn out, it can be used multiple times as a filter, providing a long-lasting sustainable water purification system.
What's even more impressive is that the book also educates its users about water hygiene and gives useful tips about sanitation and safe water habits.
With a winning mix of education and a very practical solution to a serious problem, the Drinkable Book is a must-read for all.
