The filter is a portable water purifier that can provide clean and safe drinking water from any water source. Water-related diseases claim the lives of thousands of children worldwide and millions more suffer with preventable diseases because of the lack of clean water. The filter is made from durable plastic, about 10” long and 1” thick. The inside features a two-stage filtration system that reduces harmful bacteria from waterborne diseases and viruses. The filter straw hangs around a child’s neck and acts just like any other straw, except that when the water passes through the filter, it’s cleaned and safe to drink. Each filter lasts about a year and provides 200 gallons of clean drinking water. To learn more, click here.
