Press Release: Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Awards

Glasgow Student's Life Saving Product Honored In Wall Street Journal Innovation Awards

Red Button Design Ltd, a company set up by 3 students at the Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow, have been awarded a 'Runners Up' place in the 'Environment' category of this year's Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Awards, alongside entries by LG Electronics and Xerox.
The product is “The Reverse Osmosis Sanitation System” a unit that transports, stores and purifies water aimed at parts of the developing world that do not have clean water.
Amanda Jones, James Brown and Nicholas Pang are all 23 and came up with the concept for the
product just 9 months ago. The trio are currently being featured in a Wall Street Journal Podcast and full coverage of the award currently appears in The Wall Street Journal's three global editions.

This is a huge achievement for such a young company, they are the only UK company being honored at the awards.
