3.4 million people die a year from water related diseases. Water Is Life which is a partnership with Carnegie Mellon and the University of Virginia set to create a solution for these problems. The Drinkable Book is a paper that purifies drinking water. The book uses a brand new paper that works like a coffee filter. The orange color of the paper is due to the addition of silver nano particles. Straining and purifying water reduces bacteria counts by over 99.99%, leaving safe-to-consume potable water on par with American tap water. The book allows for the filtration of 5,000 liters of water fit for human consumption (enough for four years). This innovation is cheaper then any other water filtering out there on the market.
