LifeStraw began as a mission to create a product that could provide safe drinking water for children in developing communities. Fueled by the fact that 50% of schools around the world don’t have access to safe drinking water, they created their flagship product, the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter. Surpassing rigorous EPA guidelines for E. coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium, the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter is the most advanced filter available. In 2005 the award-winning LifeStraw technology was introduced as a first responder tool to filter water after a natural disaster occurred. Today their family of products -- which includes the LifeStraw Mission, Go, Family 1.0 and Community -- appeals to a diverse customer base of emergency preparers, ultralight hikers, campers, world travelers and more. In 2014 LifeStraw launched the Follow the Liters Program. For every LifeStraw product sold, one school child in Africa receives clean drinking water for an entire school year. To date this program has reached 664 schools and over 369,341 students. Eartheasy is the official wholesale distributor and retail launch partner for LifeStraw, which is now available for US and Canadian customers to purchase.
