Reducing plastic bottle wasted production by providing filtered drinking water for all people via our Solar Street Vending Dispensers (SVDs)

Greetings to TED members & Associates,
This realistic solution to our water scarcity etc., may have been discussed previously however kindly consider it's new design, sustainability and ease of access for all people.
One flask of water supplied Free of cost to non-incomed poor & children worldwide.
Much more details about this idea can be found here @ http://www.i8not.net/wordpress/

We aim to provide guaranteed high quality, safe, clean Drinking Water to all (on-the-go) individuals travelling to work, school or whilst on holiday. Without them having to pollute their environment purchasing one-use disposable plastic bottles whilst unsure of the purity of the drinking water within.
Also with the current global environmental issue of Climate Change, we see the wasteful global transportation costs and Oil used in the manufacturing of plastic water bottles as being greatly reduced by our SVD sidewalk located water system. Unlike current indoor or wall mounted water fountains (whose output water quality is unproven) our SVDs guarantees a balanced pH drinking water quality. Which is only accessible via our re-useable bar-coded stainless steel flask(s) & Water purchase ID card sets.
Our SVDs do not require external resources such as local mains water or use of the mains electrical power supply. As we have designed our SVDs to be totally powered by solar panels; also to use the latest safe technology to dehumidify the moisture from the surrounding atmosphere (WFA) into pure drinking water.

    Jun 9 2011: THE Canadian province of Manitoba has banned water bottles from all of its offices to encourage drinking of tap water, winning praise from ecologists.

    "We believe by taking this step we are leading by example and encouraging Manitobans to move away from using single-use bottled water," Manitoba Conservation Minister Bill Blaikie said.

    The new policy bans the use of provincial funds to buy single-use bottled water in plastic containers with less than one litre of water when tap water that is safe for drinking is reasonably accessible.

    Ecologists immediately praised the move, saying that the production, transport and recycling of single-use water bottles wastes energy and produces unnecessary carbon emissions.

    Manitoba is the second Canadian province to enact a water bottle ban, after Nova Scotia.
