We recently went on a staycation in the UK and ventured around the countryside whilst in a Ford Nugget. Whilst there we reviewed a load of cool gadgets. While some were fun, some were practical and have incredible uses! One of the gadgets we used whilst on staycation which was very practical was a LifeStraw! It protects against bacteria, parasites, micro plastics in water. It also reduces sand dirt and cloudiness! Making it safe to drink! They have been independently lab tested, durable and is BPA-Free. It has been described as the ultimate survival tool as it has no shelf life, is easy to clean and store!


LifeStraw is a personal water filtration device which protects against 99.999999% of bacteria (including E.coli, Salmonella), 99.999% of parasites (including Giardia and Cryptosporidium), 99.999% of microplastics and reduces sand, silt, cloudiness. You can use it to clean up dirty water from places such as lakes, rivers, streams and puddles. It is ideal for the outdoors type that enjoy hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, travelling and general emergency preparedness!

Each LifeStraw has a long-lasting membrane microfilmer which lasts up to 1,000 gallons (or 4,000 litres) of water! Which is more than enough drinking water for an individual for over 5 years! It has an unlimited shelf life and has been vigorously tested all over the globe. So it can face even the most harshest of conditions. Furthermore, your purchase has a real world impact. As each purchase will give one child one year of safe water.

They do more than just a personal filter too. They have a whole range of products that make use of the filtration technology.
