LifeStraw Personal Water Filter

LifeStraw - Personal Water Filter - Greg's Green Living
The LifeStraw personal water filter, a “Best Invention of the Year” (Time magazine) winner, enables users to drink water safely from contaminated water sources. This is a great item for anytime you go out camping, hiking or anything else outdoors. No need to bring a water bottle. Just fill up the LifeStraw and let it filter the available water so that it is safe for drinking from any stream or lake. It’s also great to bring along if you will be travelling anywhere in the world and feel that the local water supply is questionable. Instead of buying bottled water you can filter up to 1000 liters (264 gallons) of local water.

The LifeStraw is also perfect for homeowners during emergencies such as local flooding which can contaminate drinking water supplies. LifeStraw is the most advanced personal water filter available today and surpasses EPA guidelines for E. coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium oocysts. Since 2005, LifeStraw has been used in developing countries to assist in achieving the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals for clean drinking water.
