According to the company that made it, it "is a point-of-use microbial water treatment system intended for routine use in low-income settings". It can filter enough water for a family of five for three years. It's pretty amazing! It has passed all these standards for testing water purifiers and doesn't require any electrical power nor batteries. It really was invented for those who do not have access to clean drinking water but they have made it available for selling to individual customers as well.

I think it's an amazing gift to give to friends and family who always go on hikes and the like. It's also perfect for traveling as we're always not sure if there would be available drinking water at the place we're headed to. Most importantly, I think companies should really purchase tons of this and donate them to families in certain areas, here in the Philippines, who don't have access to clean water. I'm sure there are plenty who need the help. If only I had the power and influence to do so. Hayyyy.
It's one of the best inventions so why not share it to your loved ones? We all have that tito who loves to camp, or that friend who's spending a few years in India doing social work. The LifeStraw is the perfect gift for them.
It costs P1,800 and according to Spot.ph, it's available here in the Philippines. Hooray!
