The LifeStraw Family 1.0 gravity-based water filter
Safe, Purified Water for Home, Camping, and More
The award-winning, world-renowned LifeStraw Family 1.0 large volume water filter can filter out viruses from an incredible 18,000 liters of water (4,750 gallons) — enough to supply a family of five with clean drinking water for up to three years.
This gravity filter is easy to use. Just pour water in the top, and clean water comes out the bottom. And it comes in a sealed bag, perfect for storing for emergencies.
Lightweight and highly portable, LifeStraw Family is perfect for camping. It makes filtering water a breeze at base camps, while car camping, or when camping with groups. It's also great to have at home in the event of boil water advisories. In addition to purifying contaminated tap water, in a worst case scenario you can use the Family to remove bacteria, protozoa, and viruses from a fresh water source near your home with the LifeStraw Family.
The LifeStraw Family water filter has been distributed to nearly every major international humanitarian disaster since 2005 and in broad public health campaigns in the millions. The same rugged design used in places like Haiti, Indonesia, Kenya, Pakistan and Bangladesh is now available for consumers in North America.

How LifeStraw Family Works
LifeStraw Family uses advanced hollow fiber technology. Water is forced through narrow fibers under high pressure. Clean water exits through tiny pores in the walls of the hollow fibers, but bacteria, protozoa, and other contaminants are trapped inside the hollow fibers and are flushed out by backwashing — making this a highly efficient method of filtration.
Flow rate of 9 to 12 liters per hour (2.4 to 3.2 gallons; view larger).
One For One Donation Program
For every LifeStraw water filter sold, a child in Africa receives clean drinking water for an entire school year, thanks to the donation efforts of the North American distributor, Eartheasy. Eartheasy uses part of the funds to donate LifeStraw Community institutional water purifiers to schools in Africa. Eartheasy's goal is to provide clean water to 500 schools in Kenya this year. Your purchase makes this possible. Thank you!
