Water is life - Read all about it!

The Drinkable Book is one of the great water stories of our time. It is set to transform peoples lives. Simple, sustainable and cheap, it’s the result of a collaboration between the non profit organization Water is Life and scientists and researchers from University of Virginia and Carnegie Mellon. Combining usable water filter book pages with educational information this book is not only important in terms of clean water but as a lesson in how things can be done in a sustainable, innovative manner – when people work together to solve a problem. And what a problem water is. Every single day 5,000 children under the age of five die from water related diseases. Millions of people suffer from water related preventable diseases all because of a lack of clean drinking water. Hats off to the creators of the Drinkable Book.
