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.

LifeStraw for Travel:

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
LifeStraw for Preparedness:

your emergency preparedness kit. Buy a LifeStraw for each member in your
household - it's a low-cost investment in security.
