Meet Source, an innovative attempt at tackling the human condition that is water stress. Developed by Arizona-based start-up Zero Mass Water, Source is a hydropanel that generates drinking water directly from sunlight and air. Source was created in an attempt to develop an easy, accessible way for humankind to gather quality, clean drinking water.

This new system can produce up to five litres of water per day, tapping into the unlimited supply of water vapor in the air and combining it with natural sunlight. This feature alone makes Source an innovative supplier of renewable water. Source allows consumers to access clean drinking water without the added waste of bottled or filtered water. In fact, a single Source array wastes zero water, while preventing the use of over 70,000 plastic bottles over a 10 year period.

In changing the relationship between humans and water, Source connects consumers to this natural resource more than ever before. Source allows users to see how much water they are producing and consuming, positively impacting the performance of the product through responsive optimization. Perhaps with more Source in the world, we will be able to see a day where nobody is denied the fundamental access to clean drinking water.
