Lifestraw for clean water

lifestrawMore than 1 billion people don’t have access to clean water. With that in mind, Lifestraw has created a filtration device, a straw, that people can wear around their neck and use to filter their drinking water. Lifestraw “claims to filter 99.9999 percent of bacteria and 98.7 percent of viruses using a halogen-based resin.” Each Lifestraw provides a year’s worth of clean drinking water per person.

Perhaps most exciting is the cost: Only 2 dollars US if sold individually (presumably, volume discounting could apply). Obviously, this is a large amount of a subsistence farmer’s income, but the amount of wages earned during the time lost to illness is probably comparable. – Treehugger

You can help distribute Lifestraws by clicking “Make a Donation” on the Lifestraw homepage.

I also like the Hipporoller for transporting water easily.
