LifeStraw Emergency Water Filters
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
At LifeStraw, we believe everyone deserves equitable access to safe drinking water. We design beautiful, simple, and functional products that provide the highest protection from unsafe water based on where and how they will be used. We also take our responsibility to people and planet seriously. For every product sold, a child in need receives access to safe water for an entire year. We have been partners in the fight for the eradication of Guinea worm for 25 years, and we actively respond to emergencies across the globe. We are Climate Neutral Certified and from product to packaging, we measure and minimize our environmental impact. We strive to support underrepresented communities through our actions, our products, our marketing and our communications. We live, work and create with impact in mind. We fight for good and always err on the side of action.
HUMANITARIAN & EMERGENCY RESPONSE
LifeStraw is active in supporting access to safe water across the globe from it’s over 25 years of partnership with the Carter Center for Guinea worm eradication, to annual disaster and emergency response work, to supporting local partners in the US and across the globe with providing access to safe water.
At LifeStraw, we recognize the undeniable intersection between the impact that we as a company have on the climate, the disproportionate impact that climate change has on many of the communities that we support, and our responsibility to protect and advocate for a healthier planet. We strive to create products from sustainable materials that offer healthy alternatives to more wasteful options such as single-use plastics. We are a Climate Neutral Certified Brand, measuring and offsetting our annual greenhouse gas emissions
HOW THE LIFESTRAW WORKS
All LifeStraw products start with advanced hollow fiber membrane technology. What the heck is that? Well, picture bundles of straws with microscopic holes in them, so small that organisms like bacteria, parasites, and even dirt and microplastics cannot pass through. Think of a super advanced spaghetti strainer or tea sieve.
What about viruses, lead, chemicals and taste?
We use combinations of different additional filtration technologies to meet the need of different use cases like travelers, outdoor adventurers, in-home use, etc.
FILTRATION THAT ACTUALLY WORKS – REMOVES 30+ CONTAMINANTS
Bacteria & Parasites
Can be used during water boil advisories.
PFAS (Forever Chemicals)
Most Pitchers don’t remove these but ours does.
Because no one wants to drink plastic
