Inventors have created a new straw which gets rid of microplastics in drinking water and reduces the need for single use plastic bottles.   The "LifeStraw Universal" is capable of filtering the equivalent of 8,000 single use plastic bottles and can be attached to almost any reusable water bottle. <br />
<br />
It filters out 99 per cent of bacteria, parasites and microplastics as well as reducing the levels of chlorine in the water. <br />
<br />
It is hoped that LifeStraw's invention will also reduce the amount of plastic getting into the water by allowing users to attach it to their own reusable bottles. <br />
