Pedal power delivers clean water to the developing world with a mobile filtration system powered by, you guessed it, the pedaling action of the bike.
To say this is brilliant is an extreme understatement when you read the opening statement that 5,000 children PER DAY die because of water-related diseases. That's more than all the US soldiers killed in Iraq since the start of the war. And those kids are dying every single day.
The coolest thing about this system is that it filters 20 gallons of water AND transports it home at the same time. That's efficient and practical. The filtration system incorporates a clutch so you can pedal in place to filter additional water as needed.
