Water is an essential necessity, if we do not drink water all of our organs will eventually shut down, and we will die. A person cannot survive for more than 3-4 days without water! Water purification is the removal of contaminants (e.g. dirt, bacteria, protozoa, Cryptosporidium). Fresh water is getting more and more scarce in the world.

You do not need to continue to replace the cartridge for filtering water. You do not need to boil water, and this helps the environment because when you boil water you need fire, and the fire will produce carbon dioxide, fumes… etc. that will harm the environment/atmosphere. There are also no use of chemicals during the filtration process in the Sawyer Mini Water Filtration
