Quenching your thirst, one page at a time.
For the 3.4 million people who die each year of waterborne illnesses, the problem isn’t simply one of filtration—many actually don’t know what’s safe to drink and what isn’t. Seeking to address both issues at once, Water is Life partnered with scientists at Carnegie Mellon and the University of Virginia to produce a novel solution: the Drinkable Book.
Aside from being an invaluable guide to sanitation and hygiene, the book’s pages are technologically advanced filters “coated with silver nanoparticles, whose ions actively kill diseases like cholera, typhoid and E. coli.” Each page can treat up to 30 days’ worth of water.
Education and healthy hydration in one sleek package? Let’s hope it’s a bestseller.
