We have the perfect gift idea for anyone you know that travels out of the country, enjoys camping, and likes to be prepared in case of emergency situations. Let’s start off with a practical story, where I really wish I would have owned a UV water filter myself.
A few years ago I went on a Caribbean cruise, which stopped at several ports of call. At one of our scheduled stops, one of the attractions was exploring the city’s history and culture on foot. To add to the authentic experience, we decided to pass on the typical American restaurants and get lunch in an authentic island café. We sat down, were greeted by our waiter with glasses of water, which was a very welcome site after our 2 hour trek in the heat. But things went downhill very quickly from there, the experience ending with the receipt of my ant-covered sandwich. Needless to say we quickly left, but the worst was yet to come. Let’s just say that those glasses of water came back to haunt us a few hours later, with all four of us sick and fighting for turns in the bathroom. Not the memories anyone would want to bring home from a vacation. I only wish that I would have known about the Steripen handheld UV water purifier.
The Steripen UV water purifier uses ultraviolet light to disinfect drinking water. In as little as 48 seconds, 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and protozoan cysts such as giardia and cryptosporidia, are destroyed. And all of this safety can be found in a small, compact, and stylish package that fits right into your pocket! But this technological wonder is not just for the ten million international travelers that the CDC estimates will develop diarrhea from contaminated water; it’s a great idea for everyone who enjoys the outdoors, and it’s even handy in case of a water emergency.
For Campers and Hikers: If you know someone who likes camping or hiking, they know that contaminated water cannot be visually detected. Just because water looks clean, it might not be. There are several types of microorganisms which most often come from animal and human waste and are spread by water run-off. The Steripen water purifier protects your most precious thing when you’re camping or hiking, your water.
For Emergency Situations: Many of us live, or know someone who lives, in an area that is prone to natural disasters. Whether it be hurricanes, floods, tornadoes or earthquakes , all natural disasters can disrupt safe drinking water supplies in a number of ways, and that has the potential to create ideal environments for microbial growth. And Steripen should be an essential part of your emergency preparation.
Remember, if you need a cool, last minute gift idea for the traveler, adventure, the preparer, or the techie in your family; consider one of the Steripen UV water purifier products. You can easily see why the Steripen was named on Time Magazine’s All-Time 100 Gadgets, and recently name in Fox News Hottest Tech Toys.
