LIT_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle_336x280

Each year, 3.4 million people die from water-related diseases, and many of those deaths are the result of a lack of knowledge about what water is safe to drink. The people who drink contaminated water often have no idea what they’re really consuming or how dangerous it could be.

Finally, there is an affordable and effective answer to solving the world’s drinking water crisis. The Drinkable Book is the first ever education-and-water-filter hybrid. Not only do the pages teach readers about water safety, but the pages themselves are filters that can reduce waterborne bacteria by over 99.99%!

This invention, miraculously, has the potential to solve both the water crisis problems (albeit slowly). First, people can read the book to learn about clean water. Then they can begin making it themselves.

Check out the video to learn more about filter books and how you can provide one to a needy community. Each one can help educate people about sanitation and provide 30 days of clean drinking water. Plus, meet the woman who invented the special paper that doubles as a water filter!
