Lifesaving Design

Availability of clean drinking water is massive problem all over the world. From natural disasters like 2004’s tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, to war torn areas of the word, countless lives are unnecessarily lost due to bacteria and virus filled wells, lakes and streams. LIFESAVER bottle is the world’s first all in one ultra filtration water bottle. It will remove bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi and all other microbiological waterborne pathogens without using chemicals like iodine or chlorine which leave a distinctive foul taste. Winner of countless design and product awards, the LIFESAVER bottle dispenses the need for tablets, boiling, chemicals, tubes, shaking, scrubbing, waiting or effort. The LIFESAVER bottle could be one of the most important designs this century so far.

      what’s wrong?

      • Pitah says:

        Check grammar on the first sentence and the spelling if the word ‘World’ among other things the punctuation is also wrong.

        I think this is a wonderful idea. Just curious if this were possible would’nt ‘Brita’ have all ready tried it?

    Have been tested it?

  • Lim says:

    Hmm… well, again i see this concept depends higly whether the filtering does work….. Nothing much to look on…Its seems very simple enough to use.

  • Ghazwa says:

    awesome

  • cmon says:

    if you would search on it, the Army has already been using a water-filtering device like that..

    so its not a concept anymore.

  • Rob says:

    Granted that the bottle is not blown away in the natural disaster!

  • zuy says:

    the main pb is the price for the 90%

  • george says:

    i have 1 and it dont work

  • cra says:

    If this really does work WELL, then it should be made with a larger holding capacity. 750 ml doesn’t go far. But really cool idea, this would be great for long distance tramping.

    Actually, I recently saw a commercial for plastic bottles, probably paid for by plastic companies or something; anyway, they said, and this is confirmed by science, that if you put water in the sun for about six hours, undisturbed, in a plastic bottle, the uv from the sun will decontaminate it.
