The life straw is a very new up and coming life saver literally a life saver. It has been designed that no matter what water you place the engineered straw into you will get fresh drinking water out the other side. Since the first original LifeStraw the company have started to design a huge range of products so they are suitable for everyone’s needs, for example the latest “New LifeStraw Go” in addition to removing bacteria and protozoa, it now incorporates a carbon capsule that reduces chlorine, bad taste and odor. It also comes in 5 different colors! Apart from it being really useful on a day to day hiking/camping trip it could be even more beneficial to the third world countries who really struggle with water problems.
Another bonus to these they are ECO friendly as there is no need for and electrical components it’s all done my hand the good old fashioned way. It also exceeds all US Government protection agency drinking water standards, completely chemical free and safe to use. Saying all of this it’s not like that with every LifeStraw product some of the first manufactured where not as safe, if there is a virus in the water the filtration system can’t filter it out so be careful when purchasing, make sure you get the rite one for you. Also they have a life expectancy on anything from 1,000 liters up to 18,000 liters so as said before do your research first and you will come out a winner in the end.
