THE DRINKABLE BOOK
• • •
The Drinkable Book is a life saving tool that filters water and
teaches proper sanitation & hygiene to those in the developing world.
Each book is printed on technologically advanced filter paper,
capable of killing deadly waterborne diseases. And each page
is coated with silver nanoparticles, whose ions actively kill
diseases like cholera, typhoid and E. coli.
Once water is passed through the filter, bacteria count is
reduced by over 99.99%, making the filtered water comparable
to tap water in the United States of America.
The paper costs only pennies to produce, making it by far the
cheapest option on the market. Each filter is capable of giving
someone up to 30 days worth of clean water. And each book is
capable of providing someone with clean water for up to 4 years.

Step 1: Tear out one of the pre-perforated sheets. Each filter will last 1 month (individual use), or 100L of water.
Step 2: Place the filter in the slot, located in the base of the custom filter-box.
Step 3: Replace the pressure plate, and pour water through. What collects in the lower reservoir is safe to drink.
