Use Lifestraw and get clean drinking water from any river, stream or lake

Water Water Everywhere and Not a Drop to Drink

It's important to stay hydrated on the water, but the irony is to be surrounded by water and not know if you can drink it. Lifestraw have solved this problem by creating a lightweight portable filtration solution that means you can drink any water, anytime.

What is Lifestraw?

Lifestraw has the power to take ANY water and turn it into clean drinking water. Now we are lucky here in the Snowy Mountains as we have lovely fresh drinking water from the tap. But this was originally designed for those in not so lucky countries, and was created to provide clean drinking water to disaster affected areas quickly.

What this means for the fisherman is that you can take an empty bottle with you and fill up from the river, stream or lake and have an endless supply of clean drinking water. You can also take it overseas with you to make sure the water is good to drink. You will never get caught out with no clean drinking water.

Whether you are getting a refreshing drink straight from the Thredbo River, or sucking up from a muddy puddle overseas (yeah seriously it will work) you can be guaranteed clean filtered water for up to 1000 litres.
