We require the design of a portable container for storing drinking water in. The product will be sold at a very low cost as part of a social business startup so the materials that make up the bottle must be easily obtainable and manufacturable at a low cost in Ghana, Africa. You will also advise on precisely how the container will be manufactured.
The product will compete with the environmentally hazardous plastic sachets of water commonly used by Ghanaians when they drink water. The two leading manufacturers are called Pure Water and Ice Pac. Their products are easily transportable as they stack easily and are extremely cheap to purchase.
We intend to manufacture all containers, if possible, in Ghana. Possible raw materials that you may wish to consider for making them are coconuts/coconut husks, sugar cane and Palm leaves, These materials are plentiful but you may have better ideas.
In summary we require:-
- The design of a compact, portable and drinking water container - primarily designed to be single use though it may be reusable (a big advantage if it is)
- Details on how the container can be manufactured (and the apparatus required along with a possible supplier)
- The container to be made of environmentally sustainable materials
- That the materials to make the containers can be sourced in Ghana
- That the cost to manufacture the items is as low as possible
I have attached pictures of the water containers most commonly used by Ghanaians. The water container must hold 500ml of water.
