It’s giveaway time again here on The Good Human! The great people over at Eartheasy.com have one again offered to sponsor a giveaway for you all and this time it is for the newest product in their catalog, the LifeStraw. The LifeStraw is a personal water filter which enables users to safely drink water from dirty water sources, be it from a pond, lake, stream, puddle, or just some bad local tap water after a municipal disruption. Whether you have it on hand in your emergency kit and have to use it “just in case” or you spend a lot of time out of doors near questionable water sources, this water filter provides 264 gallons (1,000 liters) of clean drinking water for you and your party.

For hikers, campers, skiers, and other outdoor enthusiasts, this water filter is light enough (2 oz) and small enough (8.5 inches long) to fit easily in your backpack without being too obtrusive. Better safe than sorry when away from home, right? It retails for $19.95, and for every 10 purchased Eartheasy is donating one straw to individuals in developing countries to help them drink safer water. Pretty sweet. Some important features include:

  • Removes 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria
  • Removes 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites
  • Reduces turbidity, filtering down to 0.2 microns
  • Ultralight: weighs only 2oz
  • Contains no chemicals, uses no batteries, has no moving parts
  • Has a 3 year shelf life
  • Fits right inside most reusable water bottles

The Award Winning LifeStraw Personal Water Filter

The LifeStraw is the winner of the 2008 Saatchi & Saatchi Award for World Changing Ideas and the ‘Well-Tech 2006’ Innovation Technology Award, and was voted the “Best Invention of 2005” by Time magazine. Here’s a product review video to check out to see how it works:

Eartheasy provided one for my own use as well, and I plan on keeping it in my truck for emergencies or for even when I am out camping in an area without a potable water supply. While I always have my Klean Kanteens with me, I don’t always find a safe water supply to drink from and this LifeStraw will definitely come in handy within the next few years. But lucky you, you get to enter to have one of your own as well! Here are the rules and how to enter:

  1. I love so many of their products, but I would definitely make good use of the Sport Solar Oven Kit when the family next goes to Senegal and we stay on our land there.

  2. Hi, David, I like the Earth Massage Handheld Showerhead. As a former water treatment speciailst who lost my livelihood due to an on-the-job injury, I’m always looking for more ways/ideas to make living with chronic back pain manageable. Having used similar straws during my days from state to state, I understand the importance of requiring a “survival” tool of this magnitude. Many times I’ve wanted/needed a drink of water, only to find the source to be possibly contaminated, and experience has told me NOT to drink from even the cleanest of water, like that of Gold Creek in Juneau, AK, which supplies the entire drinking water supply to the City/Borough. As they say: “does a bear poop in the woods?” I can be contacted @ uwannaiguana@gmail.com. Thanks, and BTW, that Bamboo Bottle Co thermos works great with both hot/cold beverages! Alternatively, Jim May

  3. I personally like the LifeStraws best. I am the mother of a cub scout and I think these should be required in each one’s backpack. I also think they are going to be more in demand as our water sources continue to dry up.

  4. Hi, my name is caleb, the lifestraw is probably the best invention ever. I could just be hiking on the trail and plop that think right in a nearby river and then hydrate my self. That is soo awesome. oh and my favorite item from eartheasy would definitely be the road runner shower head, its sooo nice.

  5. Since I am on the road 5-6wks at a time before going home for a few days, then back on the road again; your garden items looked really cool & your home items did too but, I have no time for a garden. So, I browsed your ‘Gift’ section and found thee perfect item of all time! I love it already, It is my favorite item & everything about it is perfect for me & my lifestyle. Your Global Sun Oven would work 110% perfectly for me as I am a long-haul truck driver, out on the road 5-6wks at a time & could use this oven everyday to eat healthier. I read in depth all the info on this oven, then decided to bookmark your store so,that when I have saved up enough I can order your Global Sun Oven & the 2 pan set. I am so excited having never found something as unique as this oven.

  6. I am an older person in my 60’s and simply adore all the green things available now. Would love the greenhouse
    to grow veggies. Thank you.
