Ready Set Drop is a digital media campaign raising $300,000 to acquire and distribute the HydroPack™ as a global tool for disaster recovery. HydroPacks transform any bad water into clean and nutritious hydration, saving lives and strengthening communities in water crisis situations.
The HydroPack™ is a single-use emergency water filter that delivers 500 milliliters of hydration from virtually any water source. When a HydroPack is dropped in a polluted source, water is filtered as it is drawn through the membrane overnight by osmosis, mixing with electrolytes and nutrient-rich powders to create a safe, flavored and life-saving drink.
