COCONUT / purified water collector


COCONUT is a brand of a low-cost and easy-to-be-manufactured purified water collector made from recycled plastic materials and can be recycled repeatedly.
The design is inspired by real coconuts.
Aiming to offer cleaner water to people at a very low cost under the conditions of environmental protection, which can greatly reduce the infection rate of bacteria and viruses caused by unclean water, COCONUT works according to the principle of water evaporation to collect purified water from the unclean water such as rain, rivers, sea water and even water vapor on the ground. Thus, it is helpful for areas with unclean water resources.
