LifeStraw Products

Originally developed and used in a strictly humanitarian capacity, the company now offers a large variety of products that filter water and make it safe to drink – each fit for a purpose. 

From the original, compact LifeStraw (perfect for camping and outdoor adventures), to the newest personal use LifeStraw Flex (it’s a squeeze bottle!), to the kid-friendly LifeStraw Play – there is a filter for everyone.

Personally, I never travel without my LifeStraw Go. It’s a BPA free flip top sports bottle with a two stage integrated filter straw and convenient carabiner.

I’ve refilled it in questionable streams, in the airplane lavatory, from a hose in rural Mexico and countless other sources I would never consider drinking directly from.

Aside from being an indispensable travel, outdoors and camping accessory, the best part is that for every LifeStraw product sold, a child in need receives safe water for an entire school year.

LifeStraw even takes it a step further with a five year commitment after installation to ensure the LifeStraw product is being used properly and in good working order.
