How LifeStraw® works

LifeStraw® personal uses advanced hollow fiber technology. This highly efficient method of filtration requires no chemicals.

How to use your LifeStraw® filter

Simply place one end of the LifeStraw® tube into unfiltered water (a water bottle, river, or even a puddle) and suck clean water through the top of the straw. Follow the instructions provided for your first use.


Tried and tested in the harshest conditions

Award-winning LifeStraw® technology was originally introduced in 2005 as an emergency response tool to filter water often contaminated following natural disasters. Today, LifeStraw® is used in water filtration products around the world.

Worked Great!

Tried the straw out on a trip to the Appalachians and it worked great! No aftertaste and couldn't sense any particles from the stream water!

I purchased LifeStraws for every member of my family to have at our camp. It is a great and easy way to have good drinking water out in the wild. I also gave two to my sister for her and her son.
