The Lifestraw® Family units treat contaminated drinking water via a special microbiological filter. This reduces the demand for conventional water treatment, which is achieved through boiling water with non-renewable fuels. With the assistance of carbon finance, this project becomes economically sustainable and, moreover, provides a significant improvement in public health.
LifeStraw® is helping to alleviate this situation – meeting both humanitarian and environmental goals
