Water Is Life – The Straw


“Straw is a small, portable filtration device that provides pure, clean drinking water
whenever it is immersed into a water source (just like a normal straw).
This Straw, however, saves lives on a daily basis by filtering out
waterborne diseases – which accounts for over 6,500 deaths every day –
5,000 of those being children.This
revolutionary Straw has proven to be effective against waterborne
diseases such as typhoid, cholera, dysentery, guinea worm, and diarrhea,
and removes particles as small as fifteen microns.

continues to work with top water purification companies to make
thousands of Straw filters available to those in need. Each Straw costs
only $10 and provides a year’s worth of clean water for one person.”
