If you’ve never heard of the award-winning LifeStraw, what rock have you been under? It won Time magazine’s “Best Invention of 2005” and Forbes has said that LifeStraw is one of the ten things that will change the way we live. High praise and so true, pay attention here. LifeStraw was originally designed to offer clean water to people in developing countries and during disaster relief efforts. An incredible breakthrough solution, it instantly removes bacteria, protozoan parasites and turbidity from contaminated water and has virtually eradicated Guinea worm disease, which you’ve never had to worry about. So what’s in it for you? Well the LifeStraw Go is now available to regular consumers. If you run, cycle or hike long distances, meet your new best friend in hydration. The LifeStraw has been incorporated into a durable, light-weight, BPA-free water bottle that you can fill from any pond, stream or even puddle that you come across on your adventures. It’s absolutely amazing. Clean, safe water anywhere with no need to carry water with you, or boil water when you arrive. Each LifeStraw filters up to 1,000 liters (264 gallons) of water, so clip it on your pack or belt and you’re good to go, and go, and go. Check out their site to read the smart science behind it. And as if this weren’t enough to sell you, for every consumer purchase of LifeStraw, they’ll provide one school child in Africa with clean water for the whole school year. Nice.
