Technology
The LifeStraw® technology contains a specially designed hollow fiber
ultrafiltration technology, most commonly found in industrial water
treatment plants that clean a city’s water supply. The inside of the
LifeStraw® consists of a large number of hollow fibers that resemble angel
hair spaghetti, but much thinner. Each fiber has pores in its walls with a
diameter of 0.2 microns or five hundred times smaller than the diameter of
a human hair. When water is forced through the hollow fibers, only clean
water can fit through these pores, blocking bacteria, parasites, and dirt from
reaching the user. This purely physical method of filtration does not contain
any chemicals.
The LifeStraw® technology has been independently tested and certified to
meet EU directive 10/2011 and EU directive 1935/2004 regulatory standards
and the United States EPA 1987 Protocol for Microbiological Water
Purification.The Global Water Crisis

for an entire school year
According to WHO a child is dying every seventh minute due to the lack of access to clean drinking water
and 750 million worldwide do not have access to safe drinking water. WaterNlife is dedicated to helping
alleviate the global water crisis. Together with Vestergaard, the inventor of LifeStraw®, WaterNlife will
donate clean drinking water to a child in sub-Saharan Africa for an entire school year for every LifeStraw®
