For several years we have been publicising that the SkyHydrant has the ability to filter water without the use of power.
However we have found that in practice, installation of a SkyHydrant has much greater environmental benefits in CO2 reduction.
This is because the SkyHydrant replaces alternative methods of achieving safer drinking water.
Some people in the communities we help had previously have bought bottled water.
Manufacture of bottles, filtring the water, bottling, and transport of the bottles, has been independantly assessed to generate 140kg of CO2 per 1000litres.
If only 10% of the daily capacity of the SkyHydrant is used to replace bottled water that means a reduction of 51 tonnes of CO2 each year.
Others in communities previously boiled the water to kill bacteria.
Boiling 1,000 litre of water on an open fire uses 77kg of wood which releases 130kg of CO2.
If only 10% of the daily capacity of the SkyHydrant is used to replace boiled water that means a reduction of 47 tonnes of CO2 each year.
Based on the above figures a single SkyHydrant can offset the equivalent of 249,000km to 268,000km driven in a medium car in a year.
Sponsoring a SkyHydrant could offset the CO2 emissions of your club or small business.
What Can You Do?
You can help reduce CO2: and support our Safe Water for Every Child Program with our challenge based on avoiding bottled water for the month of March.
