Drop99, the solution to the problem of drinking water
Written by Curtis M. Wong
Many of the technological efforts to improve the conditions of the planet and people are related to the problem of water. According to WHO, in 2025, 3.4 billion people will not have access to drinking water. Drop 99 is a portable and low-cost filter that hooks to the bottle and cleans contaminated water. Its small hole prevents the entry of harmful substances and zinc ion walls prevent the proliferation of bacteria.

A crowdfunding campaign is underway to take the project forward and to donate the filters to underdeveloped countries
Seen as seen, it is clear that technology can help preserve the planet and its resources. Many of the projects are carried out thanks to funding through crowdfunding campaigns by society, such as Drop99, The Ocean Cleanup or Glowing Plant Project. Thanks to the fact that its promoters have opened the projects to social financing, all the agents of society have been able to get involved in achieving a cleaner world and taking care of our planet. From here we encourage you to participate and collaborate in the environmental, ecological and sustainable projects of Lateuaterra, the first Valencian crowdfunding platform.

Bill Gates , in this regard, believes that he is not going in the right direction, since the technological giants are more concerned with bringing the Internet to the deserts, than solving the essential problems. “
