Rainchutes! You mean ‘Parachutes’? No, Rainchutes!

In Africa PITCHAfrica, together with ATOPIAResearch, are recycling old parachutes and turning them into rainwater harvesters. They’re being placed in dry areas with seasonal rains and are there to harvest drinking water. The project is called Rainchutes! These reprocessed parachutes are cheap to produce, gossamery and movable.
