As important and as plentiful water is, clean drinking water that is readily available can be hard to find in the wilderness. Our ancestors might have been able to drink out of a stream with no issues, but for us living in the age of germaphobes and better personal hygiene, it’s difficult to know exactly what might be in the water.
The LifeStraw is a personal water filter that can turn pretty much any water into clean drinking water, by removing a minimum of 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria as well as 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites. If you don’t know what all that means, the gist is that it will turn any contaminated water into drinkable water. The replaceable carbon capsule also makes it easier on our taste buds by filtering out chlorine, chemicals, odors, and bad taste. All you have to do is dip the LifeStraw into any water source and enjoy the clean and filtered H2O goodness.
