THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND LIFESTRAW

HOW THE LIFESTRAW WORKS

All LifeStraw products start with advanced hollow fiber membrane technology. What the heck is that? Well, picture bundles of straws with microscopic holes in them, so small that organisms like bacteria, parasites, and even dirt and microplastics cannot pass through. Think of a super advanced spaghetti strainer or tea sieve.


What about viruses, lead, chemicals and taste?

We use combinations of different additional filtration technologies to meet the need of different use cases like travelers, outdoor adventurers, in-home use, etc.

Check out some examples of how our products work below
