Back in 1994, the journey began with Vestergaard's collaboration with The Carter Center to combat Guinea Worm disease, culminating in the creation of a simple yet groundbreaking mesh filter. This innovation laid the foundation for LifeStraw's iconic journey, leading to the development of the award-winning LifeStraw Personal water filter in 2005.

LifeStraw Personal isn't just a water filter; it's a lifeline. Crafted to withstand the rigours of any environment, it embodies durability and ultralight convenience, weighing a mere 2 ounces. Its longevity is unmatched, capable of filtering 1,000 gallons (4,000 liters) of water – enough to sustain an individual for over 5 years. Designed as the ultimate survival tool, it boasts no shelf life, easy maintenance, and global testing and approval.

The original ultralight backpack and travel-friendly "straw" filter, the LifeStraw Personal is a game-changer. It transforms contaminated water into safe drinking water by effectively removing bacteria, parasites, and microplastics, safeguarding against the majority of waterborne diseases. Whether sipping from a stream or filling up a container, LifeStraw Personal ensures clean water on the go, with an unlimited shelf life once opened.

The microbiological membrane filter of LifeStraw Personal removes:

- 99.999999% of bacteria (including E. coli)
- 99.999% of parasites (Giardia, Cryptosporidium, etc.)
- 99.999% of microplastics

So, whether you're traversing the globe or exploring the mountains, LifeStraw Personal is an essential kit component, offering unparalleled reassurance that clean water is always within reach.
