The Straw That Brings Life
I don’t know about everyone else, but I have found that I am almost disconnected to the real world when I am at school. It’s like I am in my own little world, because whenever I am reconnected with my family I always seem to be out of the loop of what is happening in the world. For example, my parents came to visit me this weekend and at dinner one night I found out about this straw that completely extracts water out of any substance. I was so amazed at this new founding I had to blog about it.
Water is the number one resource that every human needs, but for less fortunate people water supply is not as abundant as we believe it is based on our own lifestyles. Lifestraw is the solution to increasing water supply to desolate villages and improving life. Implemented by the Rotary Club of Brynmawr, the Lifestraw is a portable water filter that prevents any diarrhoeal diseases through filtering all bacteria and parasites from watering holes, lakes, any water source in general. When I first heard about the Lifestraw, I was told that it filters water from substances even mud. That is when my jaw dropped.
Finding about the LifeStraw actually made me so incredibly happy because it is an innovation that clearly can make a difference and bring water to suffering children and adults that truly need it. I really think LifeStraws can change the world, what do you guys think? Are you as excited for the LifeStraw as I am?
