LifeStraw®, a global leader in developing innovative filtration and purification products for safe drinking water, has recently launched the LifeStraw Flex; a versatile, multi-use water filter that reduces lead and heavy metals as well as removing bacteria and parasites from all fresh water sources making it completely safe to drink (according to US EPA drinking water standards).

The LifeStraw Flex is the ideal adventure companion, boasting five different ways it can be used: as a personal straw, with the included 650 ml soft-touch bottle, attached to a plastic water bottle, in a hydration bladder or as a gravity filter.

New for LifeStraw, the LifeStraw Flex also reduces the presence of lead and heavy metals from drinking water, as well as 99.999999% of bacteria, 99.999% of parasites and 99.999% of microplastics thanks to a hollow fibre membrane (with a pore size of just 0.2 micron) inside the straw. This filter has a life of up to 2,000 litres however, once its life draws to an end, the membrane will begin to clog up meaning there’s no chance of you ever drinking polluted water. It’s also recyclable. The LifeStraw Flex also features a replaceable carbon capsule which reduces organic chemical matter (pesticides, herbicides and VOCs) as well as reducing chlorine and bad odour whilst improving the taste.

The filter itself is extremely lightweight, weighing just 48 grams and is compact, easy to use and carry.

About LifeStraw

LifeStraw focuses on innovation of technology that converts microbiologically contaminated water into safe drinking water with products that are designed to fit the needs of the people that use them. It’s manufactured by Vestergaard, a family owned global health company dedicated to improving the health and quality of life for people, many of whom live in developing countries. The first LifeStraw water filter was introduced in 2005 for public health use in developing countries, and the technology has been tested in some of the harshest environments since then. Today LifeStraw includes filters and purifiers for households, clinics, schools, and for outdoor recreation, travel and everyday hydration. For more information visit
