The LifeStraw personal water filter enables you to drink water safely from contaminated water sources. LifeStraw is ideal during emergencies such as local flooding which can contaminate drinking water supplies. LifeStraw is also ideal for campers and hikers who may be drinking from rivers or lakes and are unsure of the water safety. Because LifeStraw is lightweight and compact, it is also great for traveling when you do not want to rely on the quality of local water.
LifeStraw is the most advanced personal water filter available today. LifeStraw surpasses EPA guidelines for Escherichia coli and Cryptosporidium oocysts, rigorous standards for water filtration.
Features & Benefits
What LifeStraw removes/filters:
LifeStraw filters down to an incredible, 0.2 microns in size! This removes virtually all the bacteria (99.99999%) and protozoa (99.9%) from contaminated water, and reduces turbidity (muddiness) by filtering out suspended particles.
Bacteria removed includes:
Protozoa removed includes:
How to use:
The patented LifeStraw is a small tube with specialized filters inside. Place one end in unfiltered water (a glass, water bottle, river, or puddle!), and suck the resulting clean water up through the top. Anyone who can use a drinking straw can easily use a LifeStraw.
LifeStraw for Travel:
Because the LifeStraw is so small and lightweight, it's great for travel overseas in countries with unreliable drinking water. If you've ever been sick while traveling, you know the importance of drinking filtered water! Make sure to drink all water through the LifeStraw.
LifeStraw for Hiking:
Access to clean water is critical while hiking. LifeStraw accomplishes the same thing as other filters, but does it at just a tenth of the weight. If you're ultra-light hiking, this is a must. At only 2 oz, it's the lightest way of filtering water while on the go. If you consume the recommended 3-4 liters of water per day while hiking, LifeStraw will last you for between 250-330 days of hiking. If you're in a rush, there's no need to stop and filter water by the lake. Just scoop your water bottle full, and sip from it as you walk. Or, dip the end of the straw right into the lake and drink until you're hydrated.
LifeStraw for Preparedness:
In light of recent natural disasters, many people are realizing they cannot depend on their city water during an emergency. A water filter that's lightweight, easy-to-use, and portable is important to have in your emergency preparedness kit. Buy a LifeStraw for each member in your household - it's a low-cost investment in security.
Awards and recognition:
LifeStraw has received significant accolades since 2005. Time Magazine named LifeStraw the "Best Invention of 2005." In 2008, it won the Saatchi and Saatchi Award for "World Changing Ideas". Esquire called it the "Innovation of the Year." And Forbes noted that LifeStraw is "one of the ten things that will change the way we live." Now that LifeStraw has launched in the USA and Canada, we expect continued positive responses.
