Life Straw is a plastic cylinder that filters out a polluted water to a safe drinking water.

About 1.5 millions of people die each year, mostly children, because of no access to the safe water. The diarrhoea is the main disease that caused by drinking the polluted water. The disease reduces the productive time like children loses the time for education. There is no need of reading a instruction or anything but just drink the water with this tool, just like drinking with a straw. The simple plastic tool improves the life and saves the life of children.
