UNITED KINGDOM — UNICEF has found a way to squeeze sweat from people’s clothes and then purify it to create drinking water, according to the Daily Mail.
The machine was created by the charity organization to raise awareness of the lack of clean water in several parts of the world.
During the Gothia Cup, which is one of the world’s biggest international youth soccer tournaments, was the background for the unveiling of this new machine.
