Drinkable Book Purifies Water, Saves Lives

Drinkable Book

 

Water is something a lot of us take for granted, considering how vast populations all across the world still don’t have access to clean water, even in this day and age. A lot of organizations are trying to change this or at least come up with concepts to help people in those areas get clean water.

One of these is the Drinkable Book. It isn’t exactly a book you can drink, because that simply doesn’t make sense; rather, it’s a book with pages on the inside that can be torn and used to filter water. The filter paper is effective in weeding out contaminants and bacteria that cause a range of waterborne diseases like cholera and typhoid.

The filter paper purifies water to almost 99.9% purity and only costs pennies to produce, which definitely makes it a promising and worthwhile concept. The Drinkable Book was designed by Brian Gartside.
