For preppers on a budget: LifeStraw now available at Highwater Filters.

[caption id="attachment_1396" align="alignleft" width="180"] for the prepper on a budget[/caption] The popular LifeStraw is now available at Highwater Filters. Originally only available outside the U.S., Danish company Vestergaard Frandsen has now made them available in the US and Canada. The lightweight and inexpensive straw is capable of removing bacteria, cysts and protozoa to EPA standards. It has a capacity of about 250 gallons. While this doesn't stand up to the likes of Sawyer water products, the price can't be beat for only $19.95. And as an introductory offer, Highwater Filters is offering Free Shipping. The LifeStraw was designed for distribution to third world countries to decrease water- borne illnesses. Vestergaard Frandsen consider themselves humanitarian entrepreneurs and describe their business model as "profit for a purpose." But now many in the developed world are seeing the value of this product. We've found that many preppers are purchasing multiple Lifestraws when they order. It makes sense for every individual in your household to have their own means of filtering water in an emergency. If you get separated, isn't it smart to make sure everyone has a safe means to drink water? We've been offering the Lifestraw for less than a month now, and they are selling like hotcakes. For less than $20, this is one very good investment to add to your security in the event that an emergency takes place. Don't you think it would be wise to have a supply in your emergency kit? Thanks for stopping by!

Silver lining in Supreme Court ruling on Internet Sales Tax.
Silver lining in Supreme Court ruling on Internet Sales Tax.

Last week's Supreme Court ruling (South Dakota v. Wayfair, No. 17-494) may change the way people shop. Large internet companies will now be compelled to charge sales tax on all internet sales in the U.S.

There's a silver lining in the decision. The ruling should encourage consumers to shop in local brick and mortar stores and to purchase from small internet stores like Highwater Filters.

Many people don't trust the water that comes out of their taps. Should they trust the water that comes out of plastic bottles? Not at all.

Nestle, Aquafina, Aqua, Dasani, Evian and other major brands are selling water that does not require testing. And it stands to reason that water sitting in plastic bottles can become contaminated with chemicals that leach from plastic. The sense of security that many consumers feel from bottled water is misguided. That water is not always what you might believe. In fact, more times than not, it isn't.

In a ruling that could have far-reaching consequences for communities that add fluoride to their municipal drinking water, a court in California denied the EPA's request for a protection order that would limit the information courts can view when considering evidence of risks to human health and the environment.
