Clean drinking water is very important for humanity’s survival on our home we call Earth.

But according to the UN, “1/6 people don’t have clean drinking water” and have to drink dirty water which is not good for one’s health as the dirty water can transmit diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery,hepatitis A, typhoid and polio.

Luckily for 1/6th of the world, Dr. Phil Souter with collaboration from the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) has developed a easy way to clear dirty water and make it clean drinking water by creating P&G which cleans dirty water for cheap.

How it works and its effectivity.

The way P&G works is that a chlorine disinfectant powder is poured into water and clumps up the dirt and other batereric killing it. The remaining dirt sinks to the bottom allowing them to filter out the water and the dirt resulting in cleaning water.

P&G is insanely cheap and easy to transport due to it being a powder, has been used in many developing countries like Haiti successfully and received many health awards due to its effectiveness.
