Imagine being brought up in a place where you did not have access to fresh water to drink.  Imagine being surrounded by contaminated water and no way to clean enough of it to have even one cup of fresh water to drink.  Imagine your drinking water riddled with parasites, contaminants and muck.  Well while you may not think about it because we are lucky in this country, there are many more people in the world that live like this and have no access to fresh drinking water.  

According to the US Census Bureau (www.census.gov) there is a birth every 8 seconds and as of today the world population is approximately 7, 103, 409, 300 and counting, that includes the United States population at 316 million and counting.  It is estimated that approximately 3.4 million people die each year from water related disease (www.water.org) and 780 million or more do not have access to fresh drinking water.  There are more people who do not have access to drinking water then there are people the United States!  That is a pretty hefty bit of information all by itself.  So while we are lucky and so blessed to have drinking water, something which is taken advantage of on a daily basis, there is someone else dying from the lack of it.

For us lucky ones our drinking water is coming straight from the Earth up through wells and/or delivered through pipes from a water company.  For many others it is not so easy,  it is a several mile walk to the watering hole and and back, then on to whatever cleaning process is available and hope they have gotten all the contaminants out of it so it is semi-potable.  Unfortunately, most of the time this is not the case, most illnesses come from fecal matter in the water because there is more water being contaminated then there is water being sanitized, especially in developing countries.  It is and has been apparent that the solution to pollution is in fact NOT dilution, the solution is awareness & action. 

This is what LifeStraw is all about.  LifeStraw is a "point-of-use" personal water filtering device that provides approximately 264 gallons (1000 liters)of fresh/filtered water at your fingertips.  It was designed to help combat the water problem in the world, but with our country going full force into activities that WILL contaminate our fresh water aquifers, it is a welcome addition to your survival needs.  Not to mention can be used on hikes, camping, wilderness runs, etc. and it's a lot lighter than lugging water around.  This is a must have, even if you never have to use it you will always be sure that you will always have access to drinking water to keep you alive, hence *LifeStraw*.

The actual website for this product does not sell the product in the US (http://www.vestergaard-frandsen.com/lifestraw), but fortunately I am an affiliate of a LifeStraw merchant in the United States.   When you are ready to purchase and/or want to see more information, click the link below or one of the LifeStraw links on terralovers site. Cheers to life!
