Working to make clean water accessible for all.

Responsibility to People and Planet

At LifeStraw, we believe that everyone should have equitable access to safe drinking water, and that our goals of providing safe drinking water cannot be accomplished without also ensuring positive impact on people and planet across our business.

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


Guinea worm Eradication

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


Women and Girls

As a women-led organization in a male-dominated industry, LifeStraw supports special initiatives to elevate the position of women in the Outdoor industry and also to support the advancement of women and girls globally given that lack of safe water disproportionately affects women.
