    To add a bit of perspective to this designer water collection, while we marvel at all the different ways water can be presented to us as a lifestyle product, there are billions of people, that not only can't afford a bottle of water on a salary of a dollar a day, but don't even have access to safe water to drink. This is where Lifestraw comes in, as one of the products that was specifically designed to resolve that problem. Shaped like and oversize straw, the system works in realtime, which means that all you have to do is find water, put one end in the water, your lips at the other end, and drink potable water free of germs and other contaminants. The lifestraw can filter 700 litres, or a single person's need for a year.

    For people in 3rd world countries and extreme traveling fans, Lifestraw is a product that filters water you find in a stream, brook, or ocean before you drink it, and it's as easy as putting straw to water and sucking. Great product and I hope it is air-dropped in mass quantities all over places that have unsafe water problems.

    I need to get me one of these. No way am I going to get sick off the water again while traveling.

    I live in the third world. Everyone struggling to exist in Africa should have one of these. Which accounts for millions! Anyone prepared to sponsor the purchasing and distribution of these Lifestraws? They could be definite lifesavers on a daily basis. Brilliant!

    Donating $15 buys about one years worth of clean water for a family. Check out this site!! We need water to LIVE, so we all deserve to have water to drink. Lifestraw filters viruses, parasites and bacteria.

    I hate to speculate how many people/animals they had to test these on...

      They wouldn't have to test them on animals or people with such accurate means of testing water purity after siphoning water through the device. It's very straight-forward from a chemist's perspective.

    I used to sell a version of this straw developed by an American company. We sold primarily to the US military. I have been "sold" on the usefulness of such a product. It is great to see it developed so well and in significant distributation. This will mean life over death for many many people worldwide. Brava!

    DustyFeetOnline.com is sponsoring these by the thousand. They have a project with Fishingcross.com for December 2009 that will donate a lifestraw for every sterling silver Fishingcross charm sold. This is a great product. Learn more at their sites.
