This solar container was created by the Italian designers Alberto Medo and Francisco Gomez Paz. The water bottle's design was inspired by needs of developing countries, specifically with the intentino of killing harmful microorganism that contaminate the water. Unfiltered water contributes to nearly 2.5 million deaths each year and can cause very vicious diseases.

The bottle uses SODIS (solar water disinfection), a technology developed at the Swiss Federal Institute of Water and Sanitation. When mixed into drinking water, SODIS works together with the sun's UV-A radiation and increased temperature to kill the majority of the microorganisms. This new technology could literally be a life saver. Stats for Solar Purification Trending: Older & Mild
