This instructional book created by Water is Life provides pamphlets on how to keep water clean and potable.
What I love about it though is that the pamphlets themselves are water filtration systems!

That is awesome! I shall go have a look at this. Books play such an incredible part in nurturing one’s mind so why not use them to help the body as well, it seems perfectly logical.
Yes! I love that the book serves the two purposes- so clever.
This is so cool, isn’t it? Just heard about it on CNN this morning too. They say each book can provide a user with clean water for up to four years. Pretty amazing.
I didn’t know it was on CNN this morning- what a great coincidence! My father told me about it months ago and I only finally got around to writing about it today. Meant to be. Four years- that is so great!
Fareed Zakaria mentioned it on his CNN show this morning and then a short time later I saw it on your blog. I took that as a sign I should look more into it and spread the word. 🙂
Definitely a sign!
And thank you for the tweet 🙂
That is amazing Letizia such a clever idea. It is sad to think many people do not have access to clean water. We sponsor two children, one in Africa and one in South America and I know through world vision number one priority is to educate and finance clean drinking water for each village. I would like to think something like this could be introduced everywhere.
It’s such a simple idea that I hope it does catch on and becomes implemented throughout the world. We often take clean water for granted.
Thank you, Letizia for highlighting the need for ways to keep our drinking water safe. I have read the statistics on the ability of our earth to provide fresh water going forward. According to water.org, 1 in 10 people lack access to safe water. The numbers are staggering. Twice the population of the U.S. Lives without access to safe water. “The Drinkable Book” reminds us that these statistics can change for the better. This is progress. Thank you for your compassion and commitment to seek solutions in a complex world.
When we look at the statistics, it is frightening indeed. Especially when we consider that we are talking about something so vital.
This is brilliant, Letizia! We take for granted the fact that we have clean water. I’m heading over to the donation page now! 😀
Isn’t it just so innovative? And so simple really, as most innovative things are.
What a great idea! Clean water is so important.
Such a clever idea, isn’t it? And beautiful as well. Thanks for the tweet 🙂 Hope your year is off to a good start!
I like their drinking straw as well.
Yes, me too. How clever they are!
You always find the neatest bookish things! You’re the best.
Haha, my father sent it to me so I can’t get credit for finding this one but I agree it is so fascinating! Thanks for the tweet share 🙂
Wow, this is so great! I really hope this catches on, and inspires more people to do more incredible things for this world. Thanks for sharing!
It really is inspirational and proves that so much can be done with very little.
Absolutely amazing. It’s wonderful what the human mind can come up with! Also saw their straw – what a cute idea for children especially!
I know, their straw is great too. So clever!
Very cool! I think there are several million people in California with poor quality drinking water who could use this!
That’s the great thing about this product – it can be used by so many people!
I love seeing things like this that help change the world in some way. Thank you for letting us know about the web site. Now you’re making me want to read and drink. 🙂 Happy New Year!
And I love how simple (and beautiful) it is. Sometimes the simplest things can change people’s lives so much. Wishing you a wonderful 2016 as well!
Wow! that is too cool.
Isn’t it just great? Thank you for the reblog, my friend!

I see you are still coming up with the cleverest of posts, my friend! I think the book is so creative – that the pages are filters themselves is SO COOL! I’ll say cheers with glasses filled high with filtered water 😉 Happy New Year!
