Climate Neutral Certification

Officially Climate Neutral Certified

LifeStraw is committed to playing it’s part in helping to reduce global emissions.

Being Climate Neutral Certified means that we have measured all of the greenhouse gas emissions from producing and delivering our products. Those emissions have then been offset by investing in carbon reduction and removal projects like clean energy and reforestation. We are also implementing plans to reduce future emissions.

Give Back Through Retail

Today, LifeStraw customers help provide a lasting impact. For every product purchased, a school child receives safe water for an entire school year. Unlike many other companies, LifeStraw implements this program directly.

Donate Safe Water

With the support of LifeStraw customers, LifeStraw is also active in responding to global disasters and safe water crises. LifeStraw’s 501c3 Safe Water Fund enables rapid disaster response in places that span from Puerto Rico to Indonesia. It also supports ongoing school and community programs in places like Kenya, India and Haiti.

Responsibility

Guinea worm eradication

The LifeStraw originated as a simple pipe filter to assist with the eradication of Guinea Worm disease. Since 1994, LifeStraw has donated over 37 million LifeStraw Guinea Worm filters towards eradication efforts. When Guinea Worm is eradicated, it will be the first disease to be removed from the planet without the use of a vaccine.
