LifeStraw Stands Ready to Fill Gap for Individuals as U.S. Drought Worsens

The drought in California and Texas continues to worsen. Water4Patriots recommends that people learn how to purify water of contaminants or stock up on personal water filters.

In the Southwest, the population is booming, but the drought is worsening. In California, newspapers such as the Los Angeles Times are claiming the state may only have one year’s worth of water remaining.

People living in Texas are in their fifth consecutive official year of drought. In Arizona, it’s the 10th consecutive drought-stricken year. January 2015 was the driest in California since record-keeping began in 1895, and groundwater and snowpack levels are at all-time lows.

The logical conclusion to the increasing lack of clean drinking water is that people will need ways to make contaminated water clean enough to drink and use for other purposes.

Water4Patriots officials, including Allen Baler, have provided a way for individuals to do exactly that through the LifeStraw personal water filter.

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.

Lightweight LifeStraw Needs No Batteries. 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. 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.

“In addition to providing clean drinking water no matter where one is, the LifeStraw gives peace of mind,” said 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.
