At LifeStraw, they believe everyone deserves equitable access to safe drinking water. They design beautiful, simple, and functional products that provide the highest protection from unsafe water based on where and how they will be used. They also take our responsibility to people and planet seriously. For every product sold, a child in need receives access to safe water for an entire year. There have been partners in the fight for the eradication of Guinea worm for 25 years, and they actively respond to emergencies across the globe. They are Climate Neutral Certified and from product to packaging, we measure and minimize our environmental impact.

They strive to support underrepresented communities through our actions, our products, our marketing and our communications. They live, work and create with impact in mind.

For every 500 products Lifestraw sell, they will distribute a LifeStraw Community purifier to a school in need which provides safe water to 100 school children for a period of five years. Put another way, one purchase of any LifeStraw product provides a year of safe water to a child in need, five purchases provide that child with safe water for the next five years.

Lifestraw have reached a staggering number of children in need of clean drinking water. In recent times over 128,000 children now have access to safe drinking water thanks to everyone's support. LifeStraw is active in supporting access to safe water across the globe from it’s over 25 years of partnership with the Carter Center for Guinea worm eradication, to annual disaster and emergency response work, to supporting local partners in the US and across the globe with providing access to safe water.

LifeStraw originated as a simple pipe filter to assist the Carter Center with the eradication of Guinea worm disease. Since 1994, LifeStraw has provided over 38 million Guinea worm filters to support eradication efforts.


Lifestraw recognize the undeniable intersection between the impact that we as a company have on the climate, the disproportionate impact that climate change has on many of the communities that they support, and their responsibility to protect and advocate for a healthier planet. They strive to create products from sustainable materials that offer healthy alternatives to more wasteful options such as single-use plastics. They are a Climate Neutral Certified Brand, measuring and offsetting our annual greenhouse gas emissions.
