We wanted to create a Top 3 water purification water bottles list for you so you can learn a little bit more about the companies behind your favorite water purification bottles.
It can be difficult to choose which is the right for you and we’ve tried these three and have found that these 3 companies are doing great things not only for survivalists like you and me, but are doing their part to make the world a better place.
We simply wanted to put together a short list so you could learn more and make an educated decision on your own on which product you would like to carry with you in your everyday pack and your bug out bags.
Take a few minutes and watch the videos below to make your own decision. We provide you with direct links to buy below the videos to make it easier for you to find each respective product.

2. Sawyer Mini Water Filter
About Sawyer Products
Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water & injuries–everything from first aid kits developed for wilderness use to our newest topical insect repellents that use time-released liposome technology.
We’re specifically dedicated to eliminating two of the biggest causes of death in the world: bad water and mosquito bites.
We acquired Coulston Products in 1999, the company that helped develop the use of permethrin, an insect repellent treatment for clothing that provides protection for U.S. troops and outdoor enthusiasts and was adapted for use on mosquito nets now widely used in Africa, saving millions of lives. Sawyer partnered with the World Health Organization (WHO) to conduct the underlying studies that led to the widespread use of repellent on mosquito netting. Sawyer now sells the number one brand of permethrin in retail stores.
We are also the proud developers of point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water. Developed using advanced kidney dialysis filtration technology, our hollow fiber membrane filters are the fastest, easiest, and most cost efficient way to deliver clean water anywhere. They are small, portable, don’t require chemicals, a power source, or trained operator for use or maintenance.
How it Works
When you purchase any type of LifeStraw® filter, we use part of the funds to distribute LifeStraw® Community institutional water purifiers to schools in Africa. LifeStraw® Community is specifically designed to deliver clean, safe water to school children by removing waterborne pathogens and dirt commonly found in source water.
In 2013 and 2014 we are distributing LifeStraw® Community purifiers to schools in Kenya, which is one of the top 10 countries in the world with the largest population of people without access to safe, clean water. We chose this area for our first program because only 37% of Kenyan schools have access to safe, clean water within 200 meters of the schools grounds.
We have over 40 full time employees based in Western Province of Kenya who are managing programs. In 2013 and 2014 your purchases of LifeStraw® filters will be directly impacting schools in Bungoma County, a rural area in Western Province. The large-scale distributions will begin in March 2014 and we will be capturing the program throughout its progress using mobile monitoring systems which will be uploaded into a public GIS database easily viewed by the public.
