A Brita filter may seem like the easier option, but when it comes to water purification, Lukas Jager‘s Puur Zuiveren may be the low maintenance king. Made from clay, sawdust, and wood, Puur Zuiveren is a simple purification system that uses zero chemicals.
The process begins with a mixture of clay and sawdust that is fired at 850 degrees Celsius. The sawdust is incinerated, creating small pockets, and the bowl is then treated with colloidal silver. Puur Zuiveren, which translates to “Pure Purifying”, is an inexpensive and astutely natural way to purify your water. If applied appropriately, the Dutch designer’s creation could very revolutionized the worlds access to clean water.
