LifeStraw is a personal water filter that’s simple to use, small enough to fit in your pocket, and capable of filtering 1,000 liters of water—that’s enough water for one person for a whole year.
It has been shown to trap 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, including E. coli and 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites such as Giardia.

This was on snort before and it's just a moneymaking machine for a really good cause. A horrible combination. 27 Dollars for one straw is still way too much, even if the prices have dropped.

#1 "When you purchase any type of LifeStraw® product, Vestergaard and its distributor partners contribute part of the funds to distribute LifeStraw® Community institutional water purifiers to schools in developing countries. LifeStraw® Community is specifically designed to deliver safe drinking water to school children by removing waterborne pathogens and dirt commonly found in source water."

Why are you so paranoid ? Any way you see this, 20-30$ for something so amazing in any rich country is like a free miracle. I bought one last year and used it in Nepal, it's incredibly simple to use it could change the life of millions. They make money out if ? So what ? You can safely drink from almost ANY water source with it. Again, this thing is a miracle.

If you can afford to take a holiday in the wilderness you can afford to buy one of these products and it might just save your ass. Just buy one and don't be a pussy :)

#1 $17.50 currently on their website. Seems reasonable for the freedom it gives you out and about.

#6 That is not the same video as this. I can't believe you can not see the significance of this product for the developing countries or even backpackers.

I do see the significance for backpackers, even though, just like in the other video the details aren't explained. I see no significance for developing countries, as the product is way way too expensive.

In around 10-15 years when this star has developed to a cash cow, prices will drop to a level where it maybe is of use for the poorer regions of africa. Remember a family in the democratic republic of congo has a yearly income of 300 USD. Yearly! Helping those people with expensive high tech is not the way to go.
