Details

The LifeStraw personal water filter, a "Best Invention of the Year" (Time magazine) winner, enables users to drink water safely from contaminated water sources. LifeStraw is ideal for homeowners during emergencies such as local flooding which can contaminate drinking water supplies. LifeStraw is also ideal for campers and hikers who may be drinking from rivers or lakes and are unsure of the water safety. Because LifeStraw is lightweight and compact, it is also great for travelers who do not want to rely on the quality of local water.

LifeStraw is the most advanced personal water filter available today. LifeStraw surpasses EPA guidelines for E. coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium oocysts, rigorous standards for water filtration.

Eartheasy is the official wholesale distributor and retail launch partner for LifeStraw, which is now available for US and Canadian customers to purchase. Since 2005, LifeStraw has been used in developing countries to assist in achieving the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals for clean drinking water. We’re excited to help launch this useful product in North America.

LifeStraw Buy One, Give One

For every LifeStraw® water filter sold, we provide a child in Africa with clean water for an entire school year.

When you purchase any type of LifeStraw® filter, we use part of the funds to donate LifeStraw® Community institutional water purifiers to schools in Africa. LifeStraw® Community is specifically designed to deliver clean, safe water to school children by removing waterborne pathogens and dirt commonly found in source water.

Eartheasy's goal is to provide clean water to 500 schools in Kenya in 2014. Thank you for supporting this mission!

What LifeStraw removes/filters:

LifeStraw filters down to an incredible, 0.2 microns in size! This removes virtually all the bacteria (99.9999%) and protozoa (99.9%) from contaminated water, and reduces turbidity (muddiness) by filtering out suspended particles.

Bacteria removed include:

  • Escherichia coli,
  • Campylobacter,
  • Vibrio cholerae,
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa,
  • Shigella
  • Salmonella

Protozoa removed include:

  • Giardia lamblia ("Beaver Fever")
  • Cryptosporidium Parvum
  • Entamoeba histolytica.

Specifications:

  • Length: 9 inches
  • Width: 1 inch
  • Weight: 2 ounces
  • Construction: durable plastic. Does not require replacement parts or batteries, or any chemicals.
  • Capacity: filters up to 264 gallons (1000 liters) of water.
  • Included: Comes with a lanyard, and a cap for the mouth piece and end piece

How to use:

The patented LifeStraw is a small tube with specialized filters inside. Place one end in unfiltered water (a glass, water bottle, river, or puddle!), and suck the resulting clean water up through the top. Anyone who can use a drinking straw can easily use a LifeStraw.

Before use, uncap the LifeStraw and hold it upright in water for a minute. This allows the water to creep up the filter membrane. Then do five quick sucks and the water will flow easily. When drinking from muddy water, you may have to blow back down into it to purge out the turbidity if the flow slows or stops.

LifeStraw for Travel & Backpacking:

Because the LifeStraw is so small and lightweight, it’s great for travel overseas in countries with unreliable drinking water. If you’ve ever been sick while travelling, you know the importance of drinking filtered water! Make sure to drink all water through the LifeStraw.

LifeStraw for Hiking & Camping:

Access to clean water is critical while hiking. LifeStraw accomplishes the same thing as other filters, but does it at just a tenth of the weight. If you’re ultra-light hiking, this is a must. At only 2 oz, it’s the lightest way of filtering water while on the go. If you consume the recommended 3-4 liters of water per day while hiking, LifeStraw will last you for between 250-330 days of hiking. If you’re in a rush, there’s no need to stop and filter water by the lake. Just scoop your water bottle full, and sip from it as you walk. Or, dip the end of the straw right into the lake and drink until you’re hydrated.

As a hiking or camping water filter, the LifeStraw provides great convenience. A purifier or pump filter is great, but it takes a fair amount of time to wait for the purification or filtering to complete. Instead, experience the convenience of drinking directly from the water source using your LifeStraw. Perfect when you are hiking, or relaxing around camp.

LifeStraw for Emergency Preparedness & Survival:

In light of recent natural disasters, many people are realizing they cannot depend on their city water during an emergency. A water filter that’s lightweight, easy-to-use, and portable is important to have in your emergency preparedness kit. Buy a LifeStraw for each member in your household - it's a low-cost investment in security.

Awards and recognition:

LifeStraw has received significant accolades since its original design was invented in 2005. Time Magazine named LifeStraw the “Best Invention of 2005.” In 2008, it won the Saatchi and Saatchi Award for “World Changing Ideas”. Esquire called LifeStraw the “Innovation of the Year.” And Forbes noted that LifeStraw is “one of the ten things that will change the way we live.” Now that LifeStraw has launched in the USA and Canada, we expect continued positive responses.

History:

LifeStraw is manufactured by Vestergaard Frandsen, which is a Switzerland-based company specializing in disease control products for developing countries. Their core business model is centered around corporate social responsibility, and they help countries reach their United Nations’ Millenium Development Goals with products designed to prevent vector- and water-borne diseases. LifeStraws are shipped throughout the world to countries in need including Haiti, Pakistan, and Africa.

  • From julie at 2/23/14 10:12 PM
    • I have a question regarding the lifestraw go bottle. After the 1,000 liter usage, can I remove the filter and replace with a regular life straw filter or is the whole bottle just done and useless after?
    • The LifeStraw Go bottle is designed to be reused. Once the filter is used to its limit, you can slide it out and put in a replacement filter. We will have replacement filters in stock soon.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes  No
  • From Jamie at 12/10/13 12:33 PM
    • Is the straw BPA free?
    • Yes. The straw and components of LifeStraw are BPA-free.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes  No
  • From Ed at 11/15/13 8:08 PM
    • How well does the straw last when opened and used on different trips at different times?
    • Opening and using LifeStraw on multiple trips at different times does not reduce its efficacy or lifespan.

  • From Keith Owen at 9/17/13 6:22 AM
    • Is LifeStraw capable of removing N. Fowleri amoeba from moving water?
      This is in relation to Amoebic Meningoencephalitis disease.
      Thanks
    • Yes. The N. Fowleri amoeba averages 8-30 microns in size which is well within the filtration range for both LifeStraw Personal and LifeStrraw Family. Amoebic Meningoencephalitis disease is only contracted when water is drawn up into one’s nose (like with nasal irrigation or community swimming pools.)

  • From Briel at 8/15/13 4:30 AM
    • If I personally am not interested in owning one, what is the name of an organization to donate money/lifestraws too?
    • Rotary International manages the donation campaigns we at Eartheasy have particiated in. We also do some independent donor programs as well. For more specifics you can email Aran at aran@eartheasy.com.

      We have donated thousands of LifeStraws to communities in East and South Africa. Last fall we donated LS for the flood relief in Panang Jakarta. Right now we are developing a wonderful donor campaign which contributes to helping stop elephant poaching. This is a direct donor program (no middlemen) where we are outfitting anti-poaching monitors with field packs so they can stay indefinately in sensitive areas which need monitoring. These field packs will have LS Family units as well as GPS units, radios, spotting ezuipment and other essential gear for the program. If you contact Aran, he will have all the details.

      Thank you for your interest in donating LifeStraw. Our donor activities have been most gratifying, these are among the best rewards in running a business!

    • To whom this may concern...as this is potentially a life-saving product and i do a lot of travelling to Africa i`m asttounded this product is not available outside the USA and Canada? This great idea is obviously going to be copied and will not be up to Life Straw regulations which causes major concerns. Could use please help me resolve my concerns and hopefully i will be able to buy from you direct...this is potentially a life-saving product and should be available to purchase from yourselves and therefore feel reassured of the genuine article as i mentioned earlier that could save not just mine but the lives of many travellers worldwide. I look forward to your reply and i hope i will be able to add the Life Straw to my travelling pack soon,many thanks,Colin Peel
    • Hi Colin,
      LifeStraw was developed for humanitarian relief purposes and has been used since 2006 to provide safe drinking water to many communities in Africa. In fact LifeStraw was not even available for retail sale anywhere. Over 900,000 LifeStraws were distributed to communities in Africa. Eartheasy has also donated LifeStraws to communities in Afirca and Indonesia. LifeStraw has provided safe drinking water to millions of people worldwide and is the filter of choice for NGO's which sponsor water relief programs in other countries today.
      Eartheasy has worked with Vestergaard Frandsen, the developers of LifeStraw, to make this product available to consumers in North America. So you are now able to purchase your own LifeStraw online and in retail outlets in the US and Canada.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes  No
  • From Charles at 5/24/13 8:35 AM
    • What prevents the 'shelf life' from being longer than 3 years if left unused?
    • The LifeStraw shelf life is a minimum of 5 years. The updated design has only had this long for actual testing, so it cannot be proven to still be effective after 5 years. However, since there are no moving parts to wear out and no chemicals to expire, it is likely the shelf life is longer than 5 years.
      Using the LifeStraw does not reduce its shelf life, so you can use it and then put it back in storage.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes  No
  • From Margaret at 5/14/13 8:56 PM
    • Please consider making a LifeStraw water bottle! I think it would sell really well to have the convenience of a bottle that the straw fits into perfectly. Maybe it could screw in and out so it was sealed, but could still be cleaned out? I don't know...but please make one! I need water storage AND purification.
    • LifeStraw is designed to fit into the mouth of most water bottles, since many users prefer to scoop water into their bottles and insert the LifeStraw, rather than bend over to drink directly from a stream or othre water source.
      However, your idea is a good one, and we will be introducing just such a product in a few months.

Great Product and Great Price!

By Robby P on 4/10/14

This filter is a must have. Works great and I have used mine several times during our annual survival camping trip. I have only bought three items I would say are 100% five star all the way. One being this filter, Two being my Survival Seed Bank, Third would be my SOG machete!

A PURE LIFE SAVER EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE IN THEIR BACKPACKS.

By STORMYLEX on 11/29/13

Wish everyone I know would order this item; not just for themselves but for others as you so generously state.

Wish I had a supply on hand to sell during this holiday season> this item is a life saver< and people need to consider this before purchasing that tie for Dad.

This item could be the last line of defense for good water when times get awful.

Reliable device in times of great need

By Carl T. on 11/12/13

I have used the LifeStraw in my camping trips and bought several boxes to give away to those affected by Super Typhoons in Asia. This device is easy to carry, very durable, has no shelf life and provides users with clean, drinking water anytime they need it, no matter the situation. I love this product!

Is there a way you can subsidize the cost so I can buy in bulk to give away to Haiyan survivors in the Philippines? They have no access to clean water now as the devastation on the land was total. I hope we can help them.

Gamechanger lifesaving product - care to ship a whole bunch to Tacloban, Philippines (decimated after Category 6 SuperTyphoon Haiyan)?

By Hannah on 11/11/13

I would be happy to help coordinate.

I am a Filipino-American public health physician in San Francisco. I had heard about your brilliant product from the 'Fixes' column in the NYT. You richly deserve all the recognition!

The Philippines' lead climate negotiator in Warsaw today announced that he will fast, starting today, in solidarity with the thousands of people from Tacloban who are unable to find food and water.

Let's bring LifeStraw to where it's needed and actualize why you made this product in the first place. Let's actually make it count.

Thank you.

Editor's Note: Thank you for your suggestion and your offer to help. We are working with Rotary International to provide safe drinking water to survivors, and a coordinator for LifeStraw is already on the ground in the Philippines. We are also providing one-to-one matching donations of LifeStraws independently.

By dan on 11/19/12

I got this from an Elk's fundraiser that Eartheasy donated the LifeStraws to, and looked it up for more information. I've had a chance to use it a few times and am quite impressed! I can't believe how much water it's rated to filter, compared to other water filters on the market. I'm going to use it for hunting this fall, and expect to be able to travel lighter. I wish it came in camo color though, but it's not a big deal.

Follow-up review

By Mike on 2/23/12

All my reviews  (4)

Just wanted to leave feedback because I've been using the LifeStraw for a while. When you first use it, it'll take a few strong sucks to get the water flowing. Then once the filter membrane is damp, it's easy to sip through. If the filter dries out again, perhaps over a few days of not using it, it takes another few strong sucks to get the water going.

On a hiking trip it was easy to use for every day. Just be sure to blow back into it if the flow stops or when you're finished sipping, that clears the dirty particles out of the pores of the filter.

When I got home, I rinsed it out and let it dry for a day or so before capping the ends and putting it back in my camping gear.

Really recommend it

By Mike on 12/13/11

All my reviews  (4)

To me, this is the best inexpensive filter on the market. It filters many more gallons than the nearest competitor, and it filters down to a much finer micron size.

It's also made by a company with an incredibly reliable track record. I like the fact that my purchase of this helps support aid work overseas too.

excellent product, worth the wait

By Paul Cavallo on 9/29/11

Our business provides items for emergency stay bags, and we have been following the Life Straw development for some time, and waiting for it to be available to US markets.The samples we received live up to expectations - this is just what we are looking for.
We are surprised that the distribution is narrow for this product, and only available from a couple suppliers at retail. I am emailing your office to inquire about quantity distribution and pricing, thank you.

Highly recommend. Everyone should have one

By Dan on 9/28/11

All my reviews  (1)

Got my shipment of LifeStraws from Eartheasy (thanks it was quick shipping!). Tried one out right away, and the murkey water tasted just fine. The others go in my survival kits.

The comment about not filtering out viruses - well that might be an issue in Africa, but water-borne viruses in America are rare. If you want viruses gone, you have to treat the water with chemicals, which you then drink.

Compared to filters in general, this is one of the very best, at 0.2 microns! I did my research!

Great product but not best on the market

This little straw is quite the little filter. It is great for hiking because is is so light.
But beware, it will not filter anything below .2 microns, which includes viruses.
It is false that is will purify the most contaminated water. It will take most things out of the water but not everything.
The first gen lifestraw had iodine beads which killed any viruses, but this was discontinued and the second gen lifestraw does not have it.
The lifestraw family on the other hand will filter out viruses because it filters down to 20 nano meters.
Great filter, just do your research.

Great little filter

By Richard on 9/26/11

Just got my new LifeStraw a couple days ago and took it out for a test drive yesterday. I found a pretty muddy, stagnant pool that's near my house, got down on my belly and drank right from it with the straw!

I thought it would taste bad but it was alright. It took a few strong sucks through the lifestraw to actually get the water to flow through, but once the water was flowing it was really easy to drink from.

I'm a believer!
