EarthEasy LifeStraw Family 1.0 Purifier



Can someone who owns this speak to it’s usefulness in a place like America? I understand that it doesn’t filter chemicals or viruses but does filter bateria and other stuff.

A few months ago I was kicking myself for not buying one of these because we have phosophates from farm runoff in the Columbus OH water supply and I didn’t trust the authorities and the claim that only pregnant women and babies were affected (their webpage compared the farm runoff to the phosphates in processed meat). i played it safe and drank bottled water which was inconvient and expensive. But now I realize that this filter wouldn’t have helped.

But the next water emergency might be completely different and this might help.

So I’ll like to hear from anyone who has actually purchased this and used it. And there thoughts on using this for municipal water emergencies.



This… Does not look like it goes in your mouth.


Weird. Sounds like it’s right up your alley.


So to speak.
