Distil / Solar water cleaner and storage


Water, the stuff of life, is used in many aspects of daily life- washing clothes, washing pans, and cooking. Today, access to clean water is a privilege for many developing countries. Many poverty-ridden areas have access to water, but it is polluted, and many others do not have access to water at all. This calls for a product which can store, clean, and recycle water, using the cheapest materials and lowest amount of energy.

Distil is a large water container and cleaner, which distills water using only solar energy. After it is used, it diffuses back into the main tank through a sponge, and the cycle repeats so no water is wasted.
