LifeStraw is a portable water purification tool that cleanses surface water and makes it safe for human consumption. It is just 25 cm long and 29 mm in diameter and can be hung around the neck. LifeStraw requires no electrical power or spare parts.
LifeStraw filters up to 700 litres of water and effectively removes most of the micro organisms responsible for causing waterborne diseases.
LifeStraw kills disease causing micro organisms which spread diarrhoea, dysentery, typhoid, and Cholera.
LifeStraw has been tested by independent and qualified research laboratories. Adults and children of any age can use the LifeStraw.
For effective use LifeStraw must be checked at regular intervals, it is recommended to blow out the last mouthful of water as well as some air through the LifeStraw. This will clean the pre-filters of whatever sand, silt and debris that might have got stuck in the textile filters.
