COCONUT / Pure water collector


This is a low-cost and convenient natural water collector design, inspired by coconut in nature, it can absorb water in the natural environment and give birth to water resources, suitable for areas where water resources are unclean and without tap water supply, as well as for areas such as navigation and islands that lack fresh water resources. The material is acrylic, high light transmittance, wear resistance and fall resistance. The purpose of this design is to be able to do so at the lowest cost. Bringing cleaner water resources to people can greatly reduce the infection rate of bacteria and viruses caused by unclean water resources.
