Clean Water From A Bicycle

 

Love this product called The Aquaductfor helping people in developing countries get clean water. 

Using the power of pedaling, water that is loaded into the back of the bike is “cycled” through a filter and run into the clean container in the front. 

This can be done by actually riding the bike home with the water or refilling the clean container in stationary mode. 

The Aquaduct reminds me of some similar products that I saw and bloggedabout in July at a Peace Corps exhibit that used bicycles for shelling corn and charging cell phones. 

What’s great about The Aquaduct is that is a simple, all-in-one solution that transports, filters, and stores water–it was the winning entry (out of 102) in the Google Innovate or Diecompetition. 

For 1.1 billion people without clean water in the world, The Aquaduct solves the problem for transporting and sanitizing water. 

In Judaism, we say “Mayim Chaim”–that water is life, and this innovative pedal-powered transit and filtration machine can help bring life-saving water to the masses.
