The same high-tech filtration design used in humanitarian crises situations in Haiti, Pakistan, Peru, Kenya, Indonesia, D.R. Congo, South Africa, Mexico, and Bangladesh is now available for consumers.

LifeStraw® is an award-winning point-of-use portable water filter that transforms micro-biologically contaminated water into safe, clean drinking water. It is ideal for a variety of users outside of the home, from hikers and campers to people displaced by natural disasters.

Backed by serious research in international labs and extensive field research, LifeStraw® has been distributed to nearly every major international humanitarian disaster since 2005 and in broad public health campaigns in the millions.

How to use
  • Easy-to-operate: Anyone who can use a drinking straw can use a LifeStraw®. Simply drink or draw the unfiltered water through the LifeStraw® and when finished blow air back through the straw to flush and clear it after drinking
  • LifeStraw® uses advanced hollow fiber technology. This is a highly efficient method of filtration. Hollow fibre membrane requires no chemicals like chlorine or iodine.
    • Water enters and is forced through narrow fibers under high pressure
    • Hollow fibers trap bacteria, protozoa, and other contaminants which are flushed out by backwashing
    • Reduces turbidity (muddiness)
    • Clean water exits through tiny pores in the walls of the hollow fibers
    • Filtered water is safe to drink
