By Sarah Burchill | 10 November 2017 09:50:30The first person in Australia to drink from a straw is a woman who recently made the announcement.
The woman, who has yet to be identified, posted a video to YouTube on Friday, showing how she used a straw to wash the dishes, then drank a bottle of water.
“The next time you go to the shower, take the time to take a shower first,” she said.
“You can put your clothes in the sink, then you can put a straw in the shower and wash them too.”
When you’re out on the balcony and you want to go for a walk, put a small water bottle in your shoe, then put the water bottle back in the shoe and walk with the water in your hand.
“The video has already received more than 1 million views.
The water purifiers have been popping up on Australia’s streets, cafes and other public spaces in recent months.
The water is now being delivered to homes via the water purification process.
But some residents have complained about the process, with many claiming it is not the cleanest and least hygienic.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported last week that some residents in the suburb of Parramatta had complained that the water was not being purified properly.
The water is being delivered via a truck in the area.
Drink water from the water filterThe first people to drink the water from an unbranded water purging straw were Sarah Burtill, a water consultant who lives in Sydney’s east. “
The process is being tested and approved and we expect to see a better water quality and a safer water supply as a result,” the spokesperson said.
Drink water from the water filterThe first people to drink the water from an unbranded water purging straw were Sarah Burtill, a water consultant who lives in Sydney’s east.
Burtill posted a picture on Instagram of the water being delivered and shared it on Twitter, with a caption that read: “Just got home to a water filter in my kitchen.”
“The water comes out of a small glass container and I use a plastic bowl to pour it in,” she wrote.
“You need to use the plastic bowl, because it won’t clean the water.”
“It took about two minutes to put the straw in.”
Busterill said she had a friend who lives across the street, who also used a water-purifying straw.
“They do this pretty regularly, and we used to use it on the weekend,” she told ABC Radio Sydney.
“(But) I’ve since switched to a plastic straw and have noticed it doesn’t do so well in the washing machine and also in the dishwasher.”
Ms Burtil’s post garnered more than 6,500 retweets and thousands of shares.
“I don’t think you should have to use a straw,” she added.
Water filtersThe Water Council of Australia has urged Australians to “be vigilant about how you use your water”.
The organisation said it was encouraging people to get tested and get tested before using any type of water purify, and to wash their hands after using it.
“People are very concerned about their water and how safe it is,” the organisation’s water spokesperson, Sarah Todman, said.
“Water filters have proven to be effective in reducing the risk of disease and we have seen an increase in people using them.”
The Water Department has issued guidelines for people to use water filters.
