When you’re traveling around the world, you’ll realise it’s a gloriously diverse planet that we live on. However, if there’s one thing that unifies humanity on every single corner of this globe, it’s that drinking dirty water is the quickest way to, at best, a couple of days locked in a toilet, and at worst, slow and painful demise that involves so much molten poop that the icy cold touch of the reaper will be a sweet relief. But how can you guarantee that the water you’re drinking is clean when you’re traveling? By using a LifeStraw, of course.

The LifeStraw is ideal for taking backpacking with you, because it can turn any source of water, whether that’s from that rusty tap in Thailand, a muddy river in Marrakech, or a drinking fountain in Stoke-on-Trent, into a bottle of clean drinking water . The LifeStraw doesn’t need any power from things like batteries, and it can clean up to a 1000 litres of contaminated water.

This little lifesaver can remove 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella, so it’s an absolute must, wherever you are going in the world.
