Put It Out seeks to reduce the impact of fires that have devastated families in informal settlements and townships in South Africa and across the globe by empowering residents with the world’s most cost-effective and safe fire extinguisher.
Our vision – to help save the lives of people in rural communities in South Africa and eventually everyone around the world.
The non-toxic, safe, cost effective and easy-to-use mini fire extinguisher is a sealed, durable pouch filled with acetic acid, otherwise known as vinegar. Suspended in the liquid is an airtight capsule filled with sodium hydrogen carbonate (aka baking soda), which is also safe if it comes into contact with the
user’s skin or eyes.
