Water problems in developing and underdeveloped nations pose a great challenge to the health and prosperity of people living there. Hence there is always an urge for methods, that could help them in such day to day crisis. Life Straw is one such tool from Vestergaard Frandsen which allows people to have clean water by just simply using it as a straw. Life Straw is actually a portable filter which cleans water through several layers before it gets ingested.
“LifeStraw® effectively removes minimum 99.9999% of all waterborne bacteria, including Escherichia coli, Campylobacter, Vibrio cholerae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Shigella and Salmonella and removes minimum 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites, including Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium Parvum and Entamoeba histolytica.” A regular blowing through the mouth-piece is required to keep the Life Straw clean and to prevent clogging .
