Mauricio, 44, is the founder of Faircap.org, a social company that designs products to address clean water shortages. The first product is the Faircap Mini, a portable, reusable scrubber that can be screwed into plastic bags and can remove bacteria such as E.Coli.
The access to potable water is a human waste, but nowadays more than 800 million people drink water without treating and more than 3,000 million can not drink the water directly from the tap, which produces an increase in the sale of bottled water and the amount of 500 billion plastic bottles of only one use worldwide . We believe that open technologies and a collaborative model can help to solve the basic needs of thousands of people.
