Three University of Glasgow and Glasgow School of Art students are to present their exciting invention and business plan in the BBC TV series Dragon’s Den on Monday 17 December.
 
Red Button Design, led by James Brown, Nicky Pang and Amanda Jones, have developed a product which they believe could provide clean water to the 1.2 billion people in the 3rd World without a reliable source.

 Dragon's Den
Reverse Osmosis Sanitation System (ROSS) allows its users to collect water from the nearest source, contaminated or not and sanitise it for drinking and bathing use. This prevents the user having to make such long journeys and reduces queuing at clean water sources, saving time and energy and promoting health.

The programme featuring Red Button Design will be broadcast at 9pm on BBC2 on Monday 17 December. Red Button 2

Red Button Design is made up of James Brown, Nicky Pang, who are both studying Product Design Engineering on a joint course run by Glasgow University and Glasgow School of Art and Amanda Jones, a Glasgow University philosophy graduate.
