Solar Hydration Pack
Backpack water station for farm workers
Solar water disinfection is an exceptionally sustainable and effective way to kill germs and harmful bacteria in water. Using this method, the Solar Hydration Pack allows workers in developing countries to carry and disinfect water wherever they go as they work.
Solar hydration pack was showcased in the Salone Del Mobile design show as a social design project. This project allowed me to understand personas and journey frameworks in the context of product design. Being able to visualize and empathize the needs of farm workers in lack of water sources was a valuable and insightful skill to gain.
