Saved by the Life Sack

The Life Sack is an innovative way to repurpose grain while also purifying contaminated water.

What many take for granted, millions of others have no or limited access to. The Life Sack is an innovative idea that could give clean drinking water to people in underdeveloped regions of the world.

Life Sack is an idea for a new water purifier kit by Korean industrial designers Jung Uk Park, Myeong Hoon Lee and Dae Youl Lee.

The Life Sack repurposes grain sacks as water purifier kits. Contaminated water is filtered using SODIS (Solar Water Disinfection Process), which involves a combination of UV-A radiation and thermal treatment to kill the harmful micro-organisms and bacteria found in the water.
