as more than one billion people lack access to safe drink worldwide, waterborne illness has become the leading cause of death. the UN predicts that by 2025, 2/3 of the world’s population will face periodic and severe water shortage. natural disasters, such as earthquakes or floods will further contaminate water supplies. developed as an emergency aid for these types of situations, the ‘hydropack’ by hydration technologies self-hydrates itself through a forward osmosis membrane that allows the pouch to draw in water and reject even the harshest contaminants. filling in approximately 10 hours, the filter can be used in any water source, supplying users with electrolytes and the highest purity levels of any personal water filter; blocking bacteria, viruses and parasites.

  • Great idea for acute drinking water problems. But what to do with all the plastic you are left with? Where there is no drinking water there is often no waste disposal….
