Lifestraws Water Filtration Systems For Pure Water
Let’s look at an exciting new development brought to us by the Vestergaard Frandsen Group’s (VFG) portable personal filtration system, also known as LifeStraw. Occasionally, it’s
the most basic technologies that have the greatest impact on people’s lives. It is a light blue plastic tube, thicker than an ordinary straw, which contains filters that make water
drinkable, even water filled with typhoid, cholera even diarrhea causing microorganisms.
Results showed that the ‘Straw’ filtered out of the water all pollutants to levels where they do not pose a health risk. At the U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill tested the
LifeStraw’s effectiveness in water containing Enterococcus faecalis bacteria, Escherichia coli B and the MS2 coliphage virus plus silver and iodine. Results showed that the
LifeStraw filtered out most pollutants to levels where they do not incur a health risk to those drinking the water. These filters which are made from halogenated resin, kill nearly
100% of bacteria and almost 99% of the viruses as they passed through LifeStraw.
However, the Straw lacks the ability to filter heavy metals like fluoride or iron nor does it remove cryptosporidium nor giardia , although the company’s CEO, showed that there is a
model of LifeStraw available that can filter out arsenic
Normally, after one year of extensive use the LifeStraw’s filters become excessively clogged and unable to use. About than ten inches long, the ‘Straw’ can filter up to 185 gallons of
water, approximately a year’s supply for a person.
The triumph of the personal filtration system brought VFG to introduce its LifeStraw Family filter, an immediate microbiological filter that supplies about six gallons of safe drinking
water every hour and about 4,000 gallons over its life span. LifeStraw Family is created to sift dirt, and filter out parasites, bacteria and viruses.
Given that the necessity of clean water is not promoted as intensely as AIDS prevention or education training in some third world countries, . Next is the step of promoting Straw
technology so that non-governmental organizations and aid groups will utilize them.
Called the LifeStraw, it won Time magazine’s “Innovation of the Year” award.

No other filter can say it’s won as many awards as the LifeStraw.
All these publications (plus 7 more) said the LifeStraw is one of the best filters ever!
The New York Times,
Surprisingly it’s really affordable (less than $20), and it’s super powerful.
It gets rid of 99.9% of bacteria and parasites and can give you 1,000 liters of safe water. That makes it perfect for disaster survival.
It’s lightweight and goes perfect in any sized bag.
