Termed ‘The Best Invention’, LifeStraw Can Change The Way We Live

Published on 12 May, 2015 at 7:18 pm By

While some of us are fortunate enough to have clean water, many people in third world countries do not have access to it. Due to this, it is estimated that nearly one in five deaths (1.5 million)  is due to diarrhea-related sicknesses that may stem from an unclean stream, reports trueactivist.

Labeled the ‘Best Invention’ in 2005 by Time magazine and ‘Invention of the Century’ by Gizmag, LifeStraw, a 22 cm-long purification pipe, developed by Danish manufacturers in 2005, provides a solution for the devastating problem of unsafe drinking water in lesser-developed countries.

In 2006 it was heralded by the New York Times as a ‘water purifier that could save lives’, and Forbes Magazine labeled it as ‘one of the ten things that will change the way we live’.

 

LifeStraw can remove 99.99 percent of water-born bacteria plus other parasites from dirty water. It is capable of filtering at least 1,000 liters of water and is very simple to use. For those who live in locations where clean water is inaccessible, the invention is life changing.

What’s more? It can even clean water from toilets. Yes, you read it right. If implemented in areas of the world where clean water is scarce, it is estimated diarrhea morbidity can be reduced by 40 percent.
