Drinkable Book That Saves Lives

Posted at 9:36AM Saturday 10 May 2014

To educate people about the need to filter water, and to provide the tool to do so, WATERisLIFE teamed up with researchers from Carnegie Mellon and the University of Virginia to develop the Drinkable Book.

Costing just pennies to produce, the innovative book both teaches water hygiene (i.e. keeping trash and feces away from water sources) and serves as a filter that kills deadly bacteria.
