Cattails are actually pretty amazing plants. not only are they pretty to look at, the way they sway in the wind, and glisten in the sunshine. They can also be an answer to clean water for many people in areas of the world where arsenic laden water is prevalent by filtering the arsenic out of the water in a very safe way!
A person named Jeremiah Jackson invented this filtration system after speaking to his brother about the arsenic problem in the drinking water in India and Bangladesh. When I read about this I just had to share how absolutely amazing this plant can be and how the ingenuity of people like you and I can change the world!
