The Drinkable Book is the first ever Manual that teaches water usage, disease prevention and sanitation tips and can also be used as a filter paper. This beautiful invention will no doubt revolutionize the way the world drinks it's most under-valued, over-utilized resource: H2O. Not only is the filter book a highly effective filter paper (reducing bacteria by 99.99%!), but is also extremely inexpensive, costing only pennies to manufacture. Low health awareness among marginalized communities who suffer the most from water-borne diseases is often an under-estimated culprit - the fact that the book can also be used to educate it's users is, in my opinion, what makes this product truly revolutionary.
The dual-impact of this book is ode to the combined creative and intellectual capabilities of its inventors, a team of scientists and engineers from Carnegie Melon and the University of Virginia, who worked in partnership with WaterIsLife is develop the manual.
This brilliant invention is a epitome of how science and innovation is one step closer to combating the water crisis and saving the planet. To find out more, visit: http://www.waterislife.com/
The Drinkable Book is a life saving tool that filters water and teaches proper sanitation & hygiene to those in the developing world. Each book is printed on technologically advanced filter paper, capable of killing deadly waterborne diseases. Each page is coated with silver nanoparticles, whose ions actively kill diseases like cholera, typhoid and E. coli. Once water is passed through the filter, bacteria count is reduced by over 99.99%, making the filtered water comparable to tap water in the United States of America. This filter paper will revolutionize water purification. It costs only pennies to produce, making it by far the cheapest option on the market. Each filter is capable of giving someone up to 30 days worth of clean water, and each book is capable of providing someone with clean water for up to 4 years.
