LifeStraw Personal Water Filter Will Be There When Clean Drinking Water Shortages Worsen

As the drought in the West worsens, Water4Patriots recommends that people learn how to purify water of contaminants or stock up on personal water filters.

While people in many parts of the country are dumping buckets of ice water on each other’s heads to raise awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), folks out West are using GPS systems to track water that is vanishing from parched areas, according to National Geographic and other media outlets.

The GPS systems were monitoring minute movements in the Earth’s crust in order to better predict earthquakes, but it turns out they’ve also been recording the drying of the landscape caused by the increasingly intense drought.

The seriousness of the situation is spelled out in a recent edition of Science magazine, which reports that the loss of water from lakes, streams, snowpack and groundwater totals approximately 240 billion metric tons – equivalent to a four-inch-deep layer of water covering the entire western U.S. from the Rockies to the Pacific Ocean.

The less clean drinking water that is available, the more important it becomes to have a way to purify water from contaminants. The LifeStraw personal water filter from Water4Patriots accomplishes just that. It’s the world’s most advanced water filter, removing 99.999 percent of waterborne bacteria and parasites, and providing the user with crystal-clear, life-giving water when no clean drinking water is available.

LifeStraw Has No Chemicals or Moving Parts

This compact device, which can be carried anywhere, weighs only two ounces. It contains no chemicals and no moving parts, and requires no electricity or batteries.

In just one month after being made available to the public this spring, sales of the LifeStraw reached 13,259. Together, those LifeStraws have the potential of turning 3.5 million gallons of contaminated water into pure drinking water.

Pores within tubes inside the straw allow water to pass but prevent contaminants larger than 0.2 microns from flowing through. The LifeStraw filters up to 1,000 liters of contaminated water without iodine, chlorine or other chemicals.

First introduced in 2005, the LifeStraw was field tested by approximately 4.5 million people and used around the world under extreme conditions for humanitarian relief. Now available in the U.S., it has met EPA standards for water filtration and was a Time magazine invention of the year winner.

The LifeStraw can be purchased for $24.95 (plus $4.95 shipping and handling). Two LifeStraws sell for $39.95 (plus $4.95 shipping and handling), while four LifeStraws and a variety of bonuses are available for $79.95 with no shipping charge.

“In addition to providing clean drinking water no matter where one is, the LifeStraw gives peace of mind,” said Allen Baler, Partner at 4Patriots, which provides products that help people become more self-reliant and independent. “When a crisis occurs, people will have clean drinking water, even if all the surrounding water is contaminated. With the LifeStraw, people can be prepared no matter what happens.”

Patriot Headquarters publishes articles, videos and news to help people become more self-reliant and independent from government and big business.
