70.9% of the Earth's surface is water. 3% of that consists of fresh water. One third of the world's population, 2.4 billion people, lives within 100 km of an oceanic coast comprising of undrinkable water, which contains an average of 3.5% of dissolved salts, an amount that is lethal to us. This is a problem due to the fact that we cannot survive more than 10 days without drinking, and sometimes accessibility to the necessary equipment is limited. Sea-t enables the individual to safely make use of the majority of water sources around through affordable and simple means, setting us free from water source boundaries.
