How It Works

The original ultralight backpack and travel-friendly “straw” filter, the LifeStraw makes contaminated water safe to drink by removing bacteria and parasites, preventing the majority of waterborne disease. Use it to drink directly from streams and lakes, or fill up a container and use your LifeStraw to enjoy clean water on the go. The LifeStraw has unlimited shelf life and once opened can provide an individual with more than 5 years of safe drinking water.

The microbiological, hollow fiber membrane filters to 0.2 microns and removes:

  • 99.999999% of bacteria (including E. coli)
  • 99.999% of parasites (Giardia, Cryptosporidium, etc.)
  • 99.999% of microplastics
  • The LifeStraw doesn’t use chemicals or batteries, so won’t expire when stored and its compact size makes it a perfect fit for most emergency kits.
  • The LifeStraw personal water filter will transform 1,000 gallons (4,000 liters) of contaminated water into clean drinking water
