ColaLife’s AirPod Medication Distribution Packaging for Distribution in Coca-Cola CratesDescription:
AidPod, a wedge-shaped container that fits between the necks of bottles in a Coca-Cola crate. AidPods are used to distribute essential medications in Africa by piggybacking on Coca-Cola’s existing operations.
One product being distributed is an anti-diarrhea kit, called “Kit Yamoyo” (“Kit of Life”). In future versions, they are exploring modifying the package so it can continue life as a SODIS water disinfectant.
