H2O Wheel

H2O Wheel

H2O Wheel stands for “Help 2 Others” Wheel which is a specially designed water-carrying device tailored as a simple and effective product that helps transport clean water safely. This intervention intends to remove the burden off the shoulders of those, for whom obtaining water is a struggle.

The current design of the H2O wheel is produced from UV stabilized polyethylene. It has a firm handle for control over tough and rocky rural terrain and allows the water to be carried inside the wheel rather than above one’s head. The heavy weight of the 40-liter wheel is borne on the ground, whereas a sealed cap ensures that the water is stored and transported hygienically.
