BALTIMORE (May 10, 2021) – LifeStraw®, an innovative, sustainable B Corp, focused on safe drinking water access around the world, announces the expansion of its home product portfolio, debuting the 18-cup LifeStraw Home water filter dispenser priced at $59.95. The BPA-free dispenser is one of the only products in its category that removes bacteria from water in addition to protecting against over 30 other contaminants including lead, parasites, microplastics, mercury, PFAS, and a variety of chemicals, herbicides, pesticides and pharmaceuticals. It is ideal for families, groups and office environments. For every LifeStraw product purchased, a child in need receives safe water for an entire year.
“We are really excited to be able to expand our home product line providing customers more options for higher capacity filtration while also providing an opportunity to contribute to a healthier planet and to create positive social impact by supporting children without access to safe water,” said Alison Hill, CEO of LifeStraw.
The LifeStraw Home water filter dispenser reduces reliance on single use plastics while giving back on a global scale. LifeStraw is also a Certified Climate Neutral company.
“While we are currently a small player in the home water filtration market, LifeStraw provides an important alternative for customers looking for an authentic brand that truly supports people and planet and that offers more elevated design and filtration performance,” added Hill.
The LifeStraw Home water filter dispenser has a sleek profile inspired by Danish design and does not take up too much space on the counter or in the refrigerator. It features a simple slide-open lid that makes refilling easy no matter where it sits. The dual filtration system not only provides best-in-class protection against contaminants, but also, leaves water tasting clean and fresh, while removing silt and sediment. Another unique aspect to the technology is that the filtration system retains essential minerals including magnesium and potassium. Filters are compatible with all LifeStraw Home water filter pitchers for added convenience.
For more than 15 years, LifeStraw has provided solutions for water-related challenges such as Guinea worm, Typhoid, Cholera, E.coli and Salmonella and has continued to expand to address additional contaminants often found in tap water.The company has actively supported low-resource communities around the world with access to health education and safe drinking water for decades.
