"Protect the environment a step at a time. "

The first problem is global warming and the second is lack of access to clean water in some countries. To understand how our product can help to solve these 2 problems better, let me ask a few questions:

What is global warming? What are the causes of global warming and what is the impact of global warming?

Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. Global warming is happening as we speak. In the past century, the earth’s temperature rose by 0.7 degrees. That is roughly 10 times faster than average.

If we ignore this, the temperature will keep rising. This can lead to drastic consequences like what we already have been experiencing. Our product helps to reduce the burning of fossil fuels for electricity usage using water turbines.
According to this table from United Nation website, we can see that the rural areas still in Africa still lack the provision of clean water in 2012.

Our product addresses the problem of clean water through filtration.

The Water Turbine consists of a filter and an electricity generator, which generates electricity through the movement of water.The Water Turbine will be used in households as the power generated by it can only power small appliances that use less electricity.The water can come from the bathroom,toilet and the sink,just to name a few. Water will enter the mouth of The Water Turbine, then gets filtered to become cleaner. Then, the water will spin the turbine to generate electricity, which could be used to power electrical appliances such as lights,television and the telephone. After that, the water will be sanitised by the UV rays before it is collected and used. Our product saves electricity by using the water turbines to generate free electricity, and at the same time does not pollute the environment. Water enters… the water gets filtered off big particles… the small particles get filtered at the main filter… the clean water gets sanitised by the UV rays, and spins the turbine, and the turbine generates electricity. Then the clean water comes out, safe for usage.
