      In the long run I’m hoping that the material will clean water for people who have no access to safe drinking water – like areas of Africa where people die far too often due to dirty water they are drinking. Unfortunately to get to that point you have to have made money. So initially I’m hoping to help Japan clean up the water at the Fukushima nuclear plant (you may have heard about it a lot in the news). After that MASSIVE earthquake in March 2011, a lot of radioactive water is leaking into the environment because of the all damage, which is obviously really bad. Hopefully this material will help them clean it up so it’s safe for release into the sea and won’t harm the environment, animals and plant life.
