Here in America, most of us take clean drinking water for granted.
But in third world countries around the globe, there are a billion people that have to ingest very unsafe water. That translates into thousands of children dying every day.
How can that change? Glenn Meder thinks he has the solution. He wants to change the world one Survival Still at a time.
Glenn has founded a non-profit organization called Pure Water Revolution and he's produced an informational youtube video to spread the word of his invention that's called a survival still. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGGCon35jew
Glenn has traveled the world and what he's seen with his own two eyes is people in Third World countries drinking dangerous water. All of that has compelled and inspired him to make a difference on a global scale, "I've had people that I've traveled with die from the water when we traveled down to Ecuador."
This 42 year old says his Survival Still is simple to use, durable and designed to last decades, "You can take the nastiest water, even ocean water and turn it into high purity sterile drinking water. It's extremely effective on all types of contaminants. It can be used with any heat source."
Once that water is boiled, all of the bacteria and biological contaminants are killed.The steam is captured and cooled and turned back into pure, sterile distilled water.
Glenn is excited to take his organization to the next level in 2012, "It's an awesome thing to think about. This is why it's called Pure Water Revolution, it really is a revolution, we can make a huge change here in the world."
It's good to know that there are people like Glenn our there that are willing to face the global water crisis head on.
And he's looking for others to join in the fight for safe water as well. If you'd like to know more about Glenn's Pure Water Revolution go to:
