UNICEF, PR agency Deportivo and Gothia Cup, the world’s largest youth soccer tournament, wanted to raise awareness about children not having access to clean drinking water around the world. To do that, they created the world’s first sweat machine, which turns sweat into clean drinking water. It is a thought-provoking idea, and one that will really make you pause for a moment in gratitude for the water we have available. It’s this kind of thing that will make you think twice before wasting even a drop of water.
The way this sweat machine works is simple. You just toss some sweaty shirts (or gym rags or whatever) in one end, the sweat gets extracted from the cloth, and then clean drinking water comes out the other end into a glass. (via Bit Rebels)
