Life Sack Is Not Your Ordinary Grain Sack

The main problem of third world’s crisis is to get food and fresh water supply. World wide charities such as World Vision have sent common supplies such as grain, packed in sacks. Based on this information, three Korean industrial designers have ingenious idea to redesign the sack. Life Sack is a sack that can also work as a water purifier kit. After grain is stored, they can reuse the sacks to purify water. Life Sack uses SODIS (Solar Water Disinfection Process) technology to filter contaminated water. The UV-A-radiation and thermal treatment will kill deadly microorganisms and bacteria in water. It is hoped that this design can help providing more sufficient amount of clean water for the people in Africa.

Designer : Jung Uk Park, Myeong Hoon Lee, and Dae Youl Lee

  1. My family adopted 3 kids from Liberia, Africa about 10 years ago and ever since then I have known I will go there. The oldest is now getting married to a man from Liberia. I am 18 and feel it is my time to go. I want to raise money, buy MANY Life Sacks from you, and take them to Liberia (with my sister’s new husband as my guide). Would you guys be able to help me out? Do you sell in bulk? Or do you only let people work through your system?
    Anyways, I want to start this process and I believe your Life Sack is the perfect place to begin. Thank you for your time.
