Entry Description

Sift filter molds allow people in developing countries to use local resources to create their own water filtration systems. The filters themselves are vessels created from a mix of sawdust and clay; a combination that creates a semi-porous solid wall filter when fired. The molds for these vessels would be sent to potters and artisans in villages in developing areas, allowing them to create their own filters and sell them amongst their wares. This concept, when paired with vessel designs that are intuitive and understandable, would allow sift to help the 783 million people around the world without access to clean water.
