A crash course in changing the world.
The person I chose is Michael W. Pritchard. He is the inventor and CEO of The Lifesaver Bottle. The Lifesaver Bottle is a water bottle that completely purifies water without using harsh chemicals. It can be used with lake water, water you find in a ditch, anything along those lines. He also invented FAILSAFE technology. In simple terms this means that when the cartridge has expired it shuts off, preventing the user from drinking contaminated water. Just change the cartridge and continue to use. It has help hundreds in countries like Africa, where purified water isn't always available. He also invented a version of The Livesaver Bottle for soldiers who are out in war! He has done something truly amazing, take a look for yourself! At his website www.lifesaversystems.com you can read all about Michaels' work and about how exactly the Failsafe technology works. You can also find a diagram of the bottle itself!
