When camping, hiking or trekking, it's vital to have clean, uncontaminated water to keep hydrated. The Lifestraw is a Portable Water Filter which converts contaminated water into clean, safe drinking water - the compulsory accessory for the adventurous soul and the perfect solution when clean water is not readily available. In fact, its easy-to-use filters are a vital tool for some of the 780 million people who don’t have ready access to safe drinking water and who are at risk of a diarrheal disease, which kills more than 1.5 million people every year. 

Extremely lightweight, this water purifier weighs only 56 grams (or 2 ounces) and can be easily slotted into a backpack. The straw like device purifies a minimum of 1000 litres ;(264 gallons) of waste and removes virtually all bacteria (99.9999 percent) and protozoan parasites (99.9 percent) that can contaminate water, including giardia. It also reduces turbidity (muddiness) by filtering out particulate matter. Made of durable plastic the filter is powered by user-generated suction and it's chemical free and does';t require electrical power, batteries or replacement parts. It's easy to use too - anyone who can use a drinking straw can use a LifeStraw. Simply draw the unfiltered water through the LifeStraw, blow air back through the straw to flush and clear it after drinking.

How does it work?

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.
  • Clean water exits through tiny pores in the walls of the hollow fibers.
  • Filtered water is safe to drink.

Check out the Video showing the manufacturer, Vestergaard who partnered Right to Play, a nonprofit organization that uses sport and play to enhance child development in areas of disadvantage. 1,000 LifeStraw® filters were donated to the community of San Mateo in Peru. The children received health messaging through a fun series of games and interactive exercises.
