Gardening & "Prepping"

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like a lot of gardeners are also into prepping.  It kind of makes sense.  We grow our own food, try to be self sufficient, preserve and put back much of the harvest, and tend to enjoy literally living off the land.

For those of you into prepping, or living in flood/disaster prone areas, I found something really, REALLY neat and practical.

It's called the My Patriot Supply LifeStraw:

This little filter claims to allow you to drink water safely from contaminated water sources.  I think this would be dandy in emergencies like local flooding which can contaminate drinking water supplies.  Best of all, It's under $25!

Campers & hikers would probably find it useful too, since they might be drinking from rivers or lakes and are unsure of the water safety. It's lightweight and compact (only 2 oz.), which makes it easy to throw into a bag and take it on the go.

Here's what the manufacturer says it filters & Key benefits:

  • Perfect size for your "Go Bag"
  • Filters 264 gallons of water
  • Removes 99.99999% of waterborne bacteria (>LOG 7 reduction)
  • Removes 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites (>LOG 3 reduction)
  • Reduces turbidity, filtering down to 0.2 microns
  • Ultra light: weighs only 2oz!
  • Contains no chemicals (and is BPA-free), uses no batteries, has no moving parts
  • Very high flow rate
  • Easy to clean
  • Very durable
  • Used worldwide in harsh conditions since 2005
  • Award winning & internationally recognized
  • 1 year manufacturer's warranty
  •  


    Here's the link to get one.  I really think this is cheap insurance for you and your family, especially if you're concerned about water quality:
