LifeStraw: Pure Water One User at a Time

The LifeStraw is a personal water filtration system that can save lives pure and simple–emphasis on pure. The uncomplicated device filters water that is unsafe for human consumption without boiling or dissolving pills, but on the way into a drinker’s mouth. Nearly 6,000 of us die every day from unsafe water, and if we can just get simple filters like this one, that remove particulate matter, viral, and bacterial impurities enough to even make mud puddle fluid potable, we save lives right away. You can donate a LifeStraw via several charitable organizations, buy them yourself (less than $25), and also look at other life saving items offered from the same company (PermaNet anti-malarial bed nets, ZeroFly emergency shelters for malaria zones, and CarePack includes an insecticidal net to prevent malaria, water purifier, condoms for HIV prevention, and broad spectrum antibiotics.)

Solutions to many of this world’s most dangerous problems are out there and available–what is missing is access. Explore the issue a bit, go to the website, and consider being that missing link, by getting equipment into the hands of families that need exactly that to see tomorrow.

  2. Carbon credit trading are few things more which a new
    kind of organized crime. In fact, immeasureable dollars have been made by disreputable firms that otherwise tell
    you he is doing good. Watch the trailer for Carbon Crooks, a new documentary
    () and see how Vestergaard Frandsen, a business that claims
    it makes profits that really help humanitarian efforts is probably the
    biggest offenders named. Shame on anyone who helps these crooks keep doing business.
