Give away clean water for Christmas this year! And avoid CO2 emissions.

Image of post in post detailed view


Earlier this week, Solvatten opened an exhibit featuring its history and track record so far.
To get clean water, some people need to collect water from an unsafe source, sometimes far away, and boil it over open fire to get it clean. This takes time (often from women and girls) and uses fuel. Fuel which costs money and leads to deforestation, carbon emissions, as well as smoke affecting people living in the homes where this is done.
The solution is the fantastic invention Solvatten by Petra Wadström. It looks like a suitcase and is super simple to use. Fill it with 40 liters of water, put it in the sun a few hours, and when the red indicator turns green it is safe to use - and hot.
So what has been the effect?
- 100.000 families using Solvatten
- 4,7 million cubic meters of water cleaned
- 30.000 hectares of forest saved
- 76 million USD saved in health expenses
- 52 million increased days of school attendance, often for girls
Each Solvatten eliminates 1 ton of carbon emissions in a year, lasts for 7 years, making it avoid 7 tons och CO2. It costs approximatealy 130 USD.
You can donate to this organization to have them spread this fantastic solution.
Maybe a good Christmas present?

        This is a great idea! Providing clean water as a gift not only helps those in need but also reduces the environmental impact.

                @rosebellendiritu if a family gets a Solvatten water cleaner they will have clean water for 7 years. And avoid 7 tons of CO2 emissions.
