Life Straw

Life Straw

This water-purifier for instant use seems to be quite interesting:

>LifeStraw is a personal, low-cost water purification tool with a life time of 700 litres – approximately one year of water consumption for one person.<

  1. I have put together a medical team that is going to Haiti this January to put on a medical mission. The team members are all Volunteers that are paying for all their own expenses as well as colleting all the medical supplies thatr they will be using. This team will be backpacking into very remote villages in Haiti so the Life Straw Purifier would be of great inportance to not only the team members but al so for the villagers.

    Please advise me of how I can purchase the Life Straw Purifier.

  8. Dear Monika et all,

    this is a private blog. To purchase the Lifestraw, I suggest you get in contact with Vestergaard Frandsen, the company that came up with this special filter.

    Oh and btw, there are also other manufacturers of such filter straws…
