Planting capsules / Rainwater collection and distillation device

Planting capsules
Planting capsules

The lack of clean drinking water due to underdeveloped infrastructure in many poor areas in Africa has a great impact on children with poor physical resistance.
This water-distilling capsule device is designed based on local climate characteristics.
The upper part is used to store clean distilled water and the lower part is used to collect dirty water.
Children only need to plant the capsules in the morning and collect them at nightfall.
Just pull out the upper part and squeeze the silica gel and sponge to drink clean distilled water.
