Imagine you are someplace where you need water but have none, and the only source is of questionable quality. Solving that problem is the basis of LifeStraw, a portable water filter technology used in third world countries and places with compromised water sources, that you can now buy for personal use in the form of the Lifestraw GO water bottle.
The LifeStraw® GO takes the portable filtration system and allows you to pack a water bottle to go just about anywhere – and if your bottle is empty, you can refill it from pretty much any water source and have clean filtered water to drink.
Here are some details:
•BPA-free water bottle
•Flip-top bite valve
•Lanyard for attaching to your backpack
•Removes bacteria, protozoan parasites and turbidity from contaminated water
•No aftertaste as it contains no iodine or iodinated resin chemicals (and is BPA-free).
•Filters up to 1,000 liters (264 gallons) of water
•Removes 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria (>LOG 6 reduction)
•Removes 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites (>LOG 3 reduction)
•Reduces turbidity by filtering to 0.2 microns
The LifeStraw® GO personal water filter integrated with a sport water bottle sells for $34.95.
PLUS … For every LifeStraw GO sold, one school child in Africa receives clean drinking water for a year!
