Lifestraw Makes Any Water Safe to Drink

As the weather warms up and hikers start heading out on summer backpacking trips, the issue arises of how to have enough fresh water on hand without packing too much for long journeys. Lifestraw creates a solution.

With a range of straw-shaped filters, Lifestraw solves this problem by letting you sip safely from murky pools or puddles, as well as any lake or river, by filtering out almost all water-borne bacteria and parasites. The 9inch-long (22cm) LifeStraw contains no chemicals or batteries and was originally designed to prevent deaths in developing countries because of dirty drinking water.

The straw’s powerful purification pipe removes 99.9999 per cent of water-borne bacteria plus many other parasites, including E-coli, campylobacter, vibrio cholerae, pseudomonas aeruginosa, shigella and salmonella. As well as saving lives in developing countries, the LifeStraw is ideal for hiking, backpacking, camping, travel, and emergency preparedness, according to the Danish company behind the device. The straw-style filter design can turn up to 264 gallons (1,000 litres) of contaminated water into safe drinking water over its lifetime, which is enough for a person to live on for a year, and weighs just two ounces.
To top it off, Lifestraw is affordable. You can get one on Amazon for $19.99 and Groupon is even running a special – 3 for $40. Additionally, for every Lifestraw you purchase, the company delivers safe drinking water to schools in need. How can you go wrong?
