About LifeStraw

LifeStraw believes in equitable access to safe drinking water, fueling their passion to innovate and build new ways to get clean water to those who need it most.

Back in 2005, the first portable LifeStraw was introduced for humanitarian purposes to remove bacteria and parasites from water in areas of the world with a lack of access to clean drinking water. After many years at work, they now produce a redesigned LifeStraw for ultimate water filtration for everyone, as well as many more ways to get you clean water no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

Clean and crisp drinking water

Beyond the iconic personal water filter straw that lets you drink filtered water directly from the source, LifeStraw designs gravity filters that clean large amounts of water by letting gravity pull the water through the filter, with no manual pumping needed.

LifeStraw squeeze water bottles are great for impromptu refills while on a run or hike. They collapse down small so you can easily tuck them away when you’re done drinking.

Keeping natural water sources clean

LifeStraw is a certified B corp, dedicated to measuring and minimizing their environmental impact from product to packaging. They refrain from single-use plastics and maximize the use of recyclable and compostable materials to keep plastic out of our oceans and landfills.
