LifeStraw’s innovative products make contaminated water safe to drink. Driving sustainable access to safe drinking water, LifeStraw began in 1994 when it developed a filter to remove Guinea worm larvae from contaminated water. Today, more than 37 million LifeStraw Guinea Worm filters have contributed to the near-eradication of the disease. By 2005, the LifeStraw we know today was introduced as a personal straw-like filter. Designed for people in developing countries who don’t have access to clean water, the LifeStraw product line is also perfect for adventurers who are heading far from municipal water sources.
