    Moving on to a straw that does something completely different!

    This is something perfect for emergencies, or a trip into the wilderness, camping, etc. LifeStraw says: You can have clean drinking water anywhere. The hollow fiber membrane technology inside of the LifeStraw keeps you safe during outdoor adventures. All of our filters are rigorously tested. The LifeStraw Personal Water Filter will transform 4,000 Liters (1,000 Gallons) of contaminated water into clean and safe drinking water. That is more water than the average person drinks in a year! No need to worry about lugging water on your next backpacking trip. At only 2oz, the LifeStraw is an easy, lightweight addition to your pack. During any natural disaster or emergency event, locating safe drinking water is vital. The LifeStraw never expires, and its small footprint makes it a perfect fit for most emergency kits. Let rivers, streams, ponds, lakes, and glaciers be your drinking water source. LifeStraw will protect you from bacteria, parasites, and microplastics. BUT! While the LifeStraw may remove parasites and bacteria, it does nothing about salt. It cannot be used to make ocean water or other salt water drinkable! 4.6 stars out of 5 from over 7700 Amazon reviews.
