Cap Filter / Water Filter

Cap Filter

According to the “waterforchildrenafrica.org” 30,000 children die each day from contaminated water. Also 85% of the diseases children under 5 suffer are waterborne. Furthermore, according to UN about 20% of the world’s population find it impossible to secure clean water.

About 60% of our body is formed by water and it has a direct relation to our survival. "Cap Filter” will help adults and children in 3rd world countries who can’t secure clean water to filter drinkable water from contaminated water using the Cap Filter and used PET bottles.
