From Water Purification Stations to Solar-Powered Filtration Systems

These water purification systems range from solar-powered filtration devices to floating river pads that offer a photochemical water treatment solution while getting rid of contaminated matter.

In addition to notable at-home examples like water-filtering toilets and smart faucets that combine hygiene with sleek aesthetics, other standouts include water-filtering seesaw pumps along with aquatic trash bins like the Seabin Project's invention that aims to cleanse our oceans while ultimately protecting underwater life.

Another more niche example of water purification systems and tools is 'The Drinkable Book' -- a literary concept that aims to educate readers about the world's limited access to clean water. The publication is a powerful learning tool and offers its pages to serve as eco-friendly and functional paper filters.
