This is a HydroPack
HYDRATION FOR A WORLD IN NEED
HydroPacks ďŹ lter bad water in emergencies worldwide. Rather than bring new water to a crisis, HydroPacks use a special membrane that blocks out contaminants, including the bacteria and viruses that pollute community water in disaster situations.
Bad Water Good Hydration
Water alone is rarely enough. Clean water is the priority in a water crisis. But having nutrients when food is scarce can be just as important.
HydroPacks save lives. Inside each pouch are nutrient and electrolyte powders that mix to create an energy-rich hydration drink that can make a difference in life-and-death situations.
Unlike bottled water... HydroPacks can be repurposed. The pouchâ€™s cellulose-based membrane lights easily and burns slowly. With a membrane that burns cleaner than wood, the HydroPack is an ideal fire starter after its use for a more eco-friendly aftermath.
HydroPacks use a natural process. Like a plantâ€™s membrane bringing clean water into its roots, the pouchâ€™s membrane uses forward osmosis to draw water in naturally and without electricity, chemicals or maintenance.
HydroPacks are the effective solution. Because HydroPacks are shipped empty, the storage and delivery process is much more efficient, much less expensive and much better targeted against our current bottled water solution.
