LifeStraw Personal Water Filter

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.

    For each LifeStraw sold in North America one school child in the developing world receives clean water for an entire school year. This is accomplished with the donation of LifeStraw Community water purifiers to schools. We also have a tree planted for every order through our partnership with Trees for the Future Foundation.

Drinking water from a pond

I recently went into the backwoods with a couple of buddies but forgot to take any water.

Fortunately I had my Life Straw which I just got in the mail and I filtered about a gallon of water into

an empty container. This way I don't have to pack around heavy jugs of water. Only need to carry 1

jug of water, then refill it with the LifeStraw as I need it. The water I filter with LifeStraw actually

tastes better than water from Arrowhead or these reverse osmosis vending machines. May tap water

isn't too bad after running it for a few minutes but the Straw makes it even better tasting without running.
