Small Portable Water Filter Makes a Big Difference in Kenya

Waking Times

Video – Designed to remove 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, here’s a slender portable water filter called the LifeStraw that features no moving parts, requires no power supply, and never needs maintenance.

Each LifeStraw Personal Water Filter can purify up to 264 gallons of water and stows easily in a pocket, glove compartment, or backpack. Vestergaard, the company that manufactures LifeStraw®, claims that if you purchase a LifeStraw, it ensures that a child in a developing country is given clean drinking water for a year. Vestergaaard conducted the first distribution in western Kenya in October 2014 when 1,646 LifeStraw® Community purifiers were distributed to 301 schools and more than 157,975 students.
