The field of innovation is still going strong, and the LifeStraw is one of the many latest creations that prove that you do not need to have a very complex design or some sort of electronic innovation in order to create something every single time. The LifeStraw can be considered to be the answer to helping everyone have access to clean, drinkable water everywhere around the world.
The LifeStraw allows you to be able to drink any pond, lake or another body of water without the fear or risk of ingesting any contaminants or potentially harmful particles. If you are curious about a LifeStraw how it works, then you can keep on reading below.
A LifeStraw is a small portable tube that you can carry around with you, and use in front of any body of water. A LifeStraw basically works because of the presence of a microfiber filters inside it, that is so fine that it is able to filter out water so finely that the water itself, when moving through the filter becomes 2 micrometers in size, so when this is happening, any particles that are greater than 2 micrometers in size becomes trapped in the filter, so the water that passes through the filter is free from pollutants and contaminants. All you have to do is place the LifeStraw in the water, and suck through the opening life you would through a straw. This pressure created by the acting of sucking makes the water travel upwards, and through the microfiber filter, hence, you get clean and safe to drink water on the other end of it. So, this is essentially what goes on behind a LifeStraw, so while the mechanism might seem deceptively simple, it is able to get the job done and ensure that whoever uses it is able to drink clean water.
