My Savvy Review of the LifeStraw Portable Water Filter #LifeStraw
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a LifeStraw for free from Eartheasy as coordinated by Outdoor PR in consideration for review publication. All opinions are 100% my own.
This is the coolest & most effective filtration water bottle that I have ever used! It is awesome for sure and I have tried many water bottles and filter straws and none of the two separate items can equal up to this LifeStraw from Eartheasy. This is a filtration straw and water bottle in one and the facts behind what makes this water bottle amazing are pretty neat. It is super easy to use… just fill it with water of pretty much any source… and drink. That is it. It does all of filtration and “hard work” for you!
The LifeStraw filter is the most advanced personal water filter available on the market today…. this is a well known fact. LifeStraw has been rigorously tested to surpass EPA standards for removing E. Coli, Giardia and Cryptosporidium oocysts, and many other waterborne contaminants. It does all of this without harmful chemicals. In Fact LifeStraw Go filters water down to 0.2 microns without the use of chemicals and when the filter has reached capacity (264 gallons or 1000 liters) it will stop taking in water. Since the water filter is detachable, you can simply purchase a replacement filter when the filter has reached its limit. The bottle can be reused indefinitely, saving waste from disposable plastic water bottles which is a huge “green” move on anyone’s part. Everything is BOA free and the mouthpiece is food grade silicone. There is no leaking with this bottle and it is made to be durable and outlast your expectations.
For every LifeStraw® water filter sold, they provide a child in Africa with clean water for an entire school year. That can make everyone feel good 🙂
Now… I have to admit my husband has added this item to our camping gear for 2016. Any trips we take… will be accompanied by the LifeStraw! Not only is it simply a fabulous water bottle that filters tap water… but it is a survival tool for those camping trips in which you may find yourself needing to drink water out of the stream or lake….. located nearby. Using this straw ensures you are drinking filtrated and delicious water from pretty much any source.
