The LifeStraw personal water filter, a "Best Invention of the Year" (Time magazine) winner,
enables users to drink water safely from contaminated water sources.
LifeStraw is ideal for homeowners during emergencies such as local
flooding which can contaminate drinking water supplies. LifeStraw is
also ideal for campers and hikers who may be drinking from rivers or
lakes and are unsure of the water safety. Because LifeStraw is
lightweight and compact, it is also great for travelers who do not want
to rely on the quality of local water.
