The small, pen-like design makes it easy to throw in any bag or even carry around your neck. It’s lightweight and can be purchased individually or in packs of five. Since these filters can be stored indefinitely (even if you’ve used them multiple times), they’re also perfect for an emergency or survival kit.
Each LifeStraw can filter up to 792 gallons (3,000 liters) of water while removing up to 99.9999% of bacteria (salmonella, E. Coli, cholera, etc.). It can also remove up to 99.9% of protozoa, including giardia. There is no need to use other cleaning methods along with the LifeStraw because it is such an effective filtration device.
LifeStraw also makes water bottles, making it even easier to filter water on the go.
