The organisation responsible for LifeStraw is no stranger to doing good for the planet and the people on it.
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.
But it doesn’t end there. LifeStraw is also committed to playing its part in helping to reduce global emissions, and now enjoys being certified as Climate Neutral. That means LifeStraw has measured all the greenhouse gas emissions from producing and delivering its products. Those emissions have then been offset by investing in carbon reduction and removal projects like clean energy and reforestation.
March 2022 marks another great milestone for the planet. That’s when the first LifeStraw products using TritanTM Renew were launched. TritanTM Renew is a technology that allows LifeStraw to use 50% recycled content in the manufacture of both the bottles and the filters. So, in addition to the great features that the LifeStraw system delivers, like removing bacteria, parasites and microplastics, and reducing chlorine, organic chemical matter, and turbidity, it’s also helping to reduce plastic pollution and landfill. And LifeStraw products are still BPA Free. Check out the TritanTM Renew range coming soon!
LifeStraw products are all about removing contaminant – from water and the planet. For example, the LifeStraw GO membrane microfilter lasts up to 4,000 litres, which is equivalent to about 8,000 single-use plastic water bottles being taken out of our parks, our oceans, and our communities.
Now LifeStraw has gone yet another step forward in the quest to reduce plastic by turning recyclable single use bottles into durable LifeStraw products using the TritanTM Renew technology. The safety, durability, clarity, and style you’ve come to expect from LifeStraw continues to live on.
