The Lifestraw is finally, now available in Canada.
The LifeStraw is an innovative ‘Point of Use’ water filter created for the purpose of helping people in developing countries who have no access to clean drinking water. It has won a number of awards and is continuing with success in offering assistance to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals for clean drinking water.
It filters down to .2 microns, and will filter at least 1000 liters. The Lifestraw will effectively filter impurities such as bacteria, protozoan and parasites.
Being capable of effectively filtering highly contaminated water in the developing world, the Lifestraw makes a perfect lightweight and compact filter for hikers and campers, as well as a superior filter for emergency preparedness.
The Lifestraw surpasses EPA guidelines for water filtration and is one of the most advanced personal water filters available today.
