LifeStraw manufactures water filtration and purification devices. The first product (the original LifeStraw) was designed as a portable water filter “straw”. It filters a maximum of 4000 litres of water, enough for one person for three years. It removes almost all of waterborne bacteria, microplastics and parasites. For more convenience, the LifeStraw Go Water Bottle incorporates a LifeStraw filter into a 0.65 litres (22 US fl oz) bpa-free plastic sports water bottle. In addition to these portable filters, the manufacturer also produces high-volume purifiers powered by gravity that also remove viruses. These are designed for family and community use.
LifeStraw water filters can provide clean water without the need for batteries or chemical treatment. All LifeStraw filters are made using hollow fiber membrane technology. Some of them also incorporate an activated carbon component. LifeStraw water filters and survival straws are a reliable and convenient way to get clean water in the backcountry. Hydrate the smart way with LifeStraw.
