'We're not a retail company with a social impact program, we're a social impact company with a retail program'

LifeStraw was born as an effort to eradicate Guinea worm disease in partnership with The Carter Centre. For 10 years, LifeStraw continued to work on Guinea worm eradication, tackled humanitarian crises and responded to waterborne disease outbreaks before becoming a retail company.

This history and depth of expertise results in high performance water filter products  you can trust with your life.

LifeStraw membrane filters use hollow fibre technology (similar to that used in  kidney dialysis) with microscopic 0.2 micron pores - dirty water enters one side and clean water passes through the pores, contaminates are blocked. 

LifeStraw microfilters remove 99.999999% of bacteria, 99.999% of parasites & 99.999% of microplastics.

In addition, the ultrafilter with a pore size of 0.02 microns also removes 99.999% of viruses.

To maintain their high performance standards, all performance claims are validated using accredited independent laboratory testing and all LifeStraw products go through both internal and external testing before reaching the market.

Your Purchase Really Makes a Difference - the LifeStraw Give Back Program!

For every LifeStraw product sold at retail, a school child in need receives safe drinking water for an entire school year. This is much more than just dropping off water purifiers - with volunteers and a dedicated local LifeStraw team, the program includes comprehensive training, education and quarterly follow up visits for a period of 5 years!

We're really excited to bring this brand on board at First Ascent - we love it and know you will too!
