Girly Camping posted the following on her blog about Lifestraw. In America we’re blessed to have access to clean water but yet we spend money on bottled water that in the end we’re paying for the name on the bottle; BOSS, Disani, Aquafina… Thanks Girly Camping for sharing this with us.

We’ve been on a quest to find great, easy water filters! While browsing around at REI, Lifestraw caught my eye. Lifestraw is a personal water filter that allows you to drink directly from a water source or bottle. This was originally designed as an emergency relief tool to provide access to clean and safe water to people affected by natural disasters such as the Haitianlifestraw water filter earthquake and floods in Pakistan.
Lifestraw filters up to 1,000 liters, has a 5 year shelf life, and removes 99.99% of all bacteria and protozoa. Weighing at 2 oz., this is perfect for hiking, camping, and emergency situations. Its affordable too! At $21.95- its the perfect personal water filter! The best part about Lifestraw is the lives they’re impacting. For every Lifestraw water filter sold, a child in Africa receives clean water for an entire school year. Go to http://www.buylifestraw.com for more information on how you can help those in need!
