Make a Difference with Every LifeStraw Filter You Buy…
50% of the schools around the world don't have access to safe water. In fact, it's estimated that 2.5 million students miss school every day due to waterborne illnesses. You can change that!
Every time you buy a LifeStraw product, one child in a developing community receives safe drinking water for an entire school year. Already, LifeStraw's Follow the Liters Program has already helped over 1,000 schools across Kenya and India!
What does this filter take out?
This Lifestraw filter removes 99.9% of waterborne bacteria (including E. coli and salmonella), waterborne protozoa (including Giardia and Cryptosporidium), some chemicals (like chlorine) and some pesticides and fertilizers. It also reduces turbidity, filtering down to 0.2 microns. (Does NOT remove heavy metals, viruses or chemicals, like chlorine.)
To clean: After each use, remove the top of the bottle and back-flush your LifeStraw Go by blowing a breath of air back into the mouthpiece to purge all remaining water trapped within the filter. If you have access to clean water, suck some into the filter and back-flush it again. Leave the cap of the LifeStraw Go open until it fully dries.
Helpful Hint: When your LifeStraw's flow rate has decreased and stops pulling water through, it is time to dispose of it. If you clean it after each use, this will help increase its lifespan.
