Half of the world's poor suffer from waterborne disease, and nearly 6,000 people - mainly children - die from diseases contracted from unsafe drinking water every day. Team Marine is recycling bottles and cans to raise money to send LifeStraws to Africa and Cambodia. LifeStraw is a portable water filter for prevention of common diarrhoeal disease; it can be carried around for easy access to safe and clean drinking water. It lasts for an entire year and filters out 99.99% of all bacteria and viruses in the water. Learn more about LifeStraws.
