LifeStraw was introduced in 2005 by Vestergaard, a Swiss-based company focused on addressing global health challenges. Originally developed for humanitarian purposes, LifeStraw is a portable water filter that enables people to access safe drinking water in emergency situations and areas with limited sanitation infrastructure. Over time, LifeStraw has expanded its product line to include personal water filters for outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers, helping millions of people worldwide gain access to clean water.
LifeStraw offers a popular water bottle known as the LifeStraw Go. Available in different sizes, such as 22 ounces (650 mL) and 23 ounces (680 mL), it integrates a water filter into the bottle’s straw. This allows users to drink directly from freshwater sources, as the filter removes bacteria and parasites. The LifeStraw Go is durable, BPA-free, and provides a convenient and reliable way to access safe drinking water while on the go.
