LifeStraw Home Purifies Tap Water, Makes River Water Safe to Drink
If you live in the United States, chances are you don’t give much thought to the water you drink from the tap. But sometimes it’s the things we take for granted that end up becoming real problems.
LifeStraw is a company devoted to bringing safe drinking water to people around the globe. Travelers, outdoor enthusiasts, and disaster relief workers and the people they help have all benefitted from LifeStraw’s water-purifying technology. Now the company is turning its attention to the home.
Even drinking water in first world countries isn’t always as pure as we could wish. And with things like microplastics, lead, and chemicals, you don’t want to take chances. Plus, these things can compromise the taste of your water, something you should be drinking a great deal of each day.
LifeStraw Home is a water filter pitcher that holds and purifies up to seven cups of water. Its membrane microfilter removes 99.999999% of bacteria, 99.999% of parasites, and 99.999% of microplastics. The activated carbon and ion exchange filter cartridges removes heavy metals and chemicals such as chlorine, leaving you with safe, pure, great-tasting water, whether it came from your tap or from the river. The membrane microfilter will last up to a year before needing replaced, and the filter cartridges will need switched out after a couple months.
Furthermore, the LifeStraw Home pitcher is sleek and elegant. Its streamlined shape will fit easily even in tight corners of the fridge, and it won’t look out of place among wine glasses and candles. You can feel good about adding LifeStraw to your daily life, knowing that by purifying your own drinking water, you are also supporting a company that brings safe water to communities worldwide.
