PURIFY / Water Purifier

PURIFY

In Africa, 3.36 million poor children are having a hard time getting water for their family but all they have is dirty water. Without clean and safe water, children are sick and unable to go to school, or even lost their lives. PURIFY is made from low-cost degradable plastics. Combined with easily attainable plastic bottles, you can assemble a simple but effective water purifier, which allows the children to obtain clean water and saves them from waterborne illnesses.
