Access to clean water is a fundamental human right that many are deprived of. In collaboration with The Carter Center, Swiss company Vestergaard developed plastic pipe filters in 1999 to combat Guinea worm disease. In 2005, they introduced the original LifeStraw, revolutionizing access to clean drinking water in challenging conditions. Now, LifeStraw has released an upgraded version, the Peak Series Solo Water Filter, designed to be the lightest and most compact filter in their portfolio.
Ultra-Lightweight and Compact Design: The LifeStraw Peak Series Solo Water Filter weighs a mere 1.7 ounces and measures just 5.1 inches in length, making it highly portable. Its compact size allows users to carry it effortlessly in their pockets. The filter’s thoughtful design ensures it fits most standard water bottles with its standard 28mm threading, making it versatile for various situations.
Efficient Filtration: The Peak Series Solo Water Filter is capable of removing bacteria, parasites, microplastics, silt, sand, and cloudiness from drinking water. It offers protection by eliminating 99.999999% of bacteria, parasites, and microplastics. It effectively removes bacteria like E.coli and Salmonella and parasites including Giardia and Cryptosporidium. The filter meets the drinking water standards set by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for bacteria and parasite removal (P231).
Fast Flow Rate: With its one-handed flip cap design and fast flow rate of three liters per minute, the LifeStraw Peak Series Solo Water Filter allows users to fill up a one-liter bottle in just 20 seconds. The enhanced membrane microfilter performance reduces clogging from sand and silt, ensuring a steady and efficient flow rate over an extended period.
Durable and Sustainable Construction: Crafted from BPA-free materials, the LifeStraw Peak Series Solo Water Filter features top and bottom caps designed to prevent leaks, ensuring reliable performance. The filter’s membrane microfilter lasts up to 2,000 liters, providing an extended lifespan. The materials used are sustainable, with 50% of the plastic being premium post-consumer recycled material. Additionally, the filter comes with a backwash syringe to facilitate cleaning and maintenance.
Supporting Equitable Access to Safe Drinking Water: LifeStraw is committed to making clean water accessible to all. By providing safe water on the go, LifeStraw eliminates the need for single-use plastic bottles, contributing to environmental sustainability.
