Water-focused charity, Water Is Life and DDB have introduced a unique book, The Drinkable Book, which is designed to educate people and purify contaminated water at the same time. The book not only provides water safety facts but is also made from a technologically advanced filter paper that can kill harmful waterborne diseases. Each page is coated with silver nanoparticles, whose ions can effectively kill diseases-causing bacteria such as cholera, typhoid and E.coli. In addition, the paper is very cheap to produce and can filter water for up to 4 years. This invention could be an effective tool for third world countries dealing with drinking water contamination.
