Dec 4, 2019

Category: Gear

LifeStraw is an ingenious device that allows users from rivers and lakes by filtering the water through their EPA approved “straw.”

A Time Magazine Invention of the Year winner, the LifeStraw is the ultimate tool for hikers and campers, and could even be great for homeowners during emergencies like floods where water supplies may have been contaminated. The LifeStraw doesn’t require any batters, and there are absolutely no chemicals or moving parts to work with.  Give the device approximately 3 to 5 seconds, and begin sucking to start the flow of water through the device. The LifeStraw can filter up 264 gallons, and removes 99.99% of waterborne bacteria and waterborne protozoan parasites. The durable device is easy to transport as it weighs a measly 2 ounces. You can purchase your own from Amazon.
