slap1: Even the water from Aba gutters?

Forget that.If it comes to Nigeria, they will adulterate it. Aba go begin they produce their own and you go just drink poison die. This kind of product cannot work here cos our people dey mean.

Quite a number of NGOs that try to provide clean water to some countries use this. I remember my church asking for donations to buy these for Haiti after the earthquake.

Good idea but the only downside is they are quite expensive for the target audience.

Anyway these straws dont last forever. They need to be changed after 3 years or so

Folks the stuffs' real and already available here in Nigeria. I saw the product on display with an unimpressive price tag on it sometime last year at the Game Shop at Lekki, Lagos.

Da infamous: While nigeria is still sleeping



The LifeStraw removes at least of 99.99999% of waterborne bacteria and can filter up to 1000L of water.

Throughout the world, an estimated 884 million people still do not have access to clean sources of water. According to the LifeStraw manufacturers, the device contains no chemicals or batteries and makes it possible to drink safely from any river, lake or puddle.






Oh, LifeStraw is good. So is LifeSaver bottle which infacts filters your urine. So, you can basically drink your own urine! See? Yes, they are efficient, safe and filter any water clean! But you apparently don't know how expensive LifeStraw and the others are. Don't you think LifeStraw'd have become a household name in every African country, if it wasn't so expensive?
Btw, these products use nano filters which remove bacteria and other very small micro-organisms. Anywyz, research is on-going about developing even cheaper versions of LifeStraw, like Tata Swach for example.
