About

LifeStraw® Home is a 7-cup glass water filter pitcher with sleek design and next Level filtration tested to protect against bacteria, parasites, microplastics, lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium III, copper and a variety of chemicals including pesticides, herbicides and chlorine. 

At LifeStraw, we’ve been bringing safe water to outdoor adventurers, travelers and communities in need for over a decade. Our products are in use in over 60 countries and are regularly used to provide safe drinking water during disaster relief efforts worldwide. Our mission is to make water safe for everyone and in recent years, we’ve seen increasing evidence of contaminants such as microplastics, lead, and chemicals within tap water in the US. Instances of boil water advisories have continued to increase as hurricanes and other natural disasters have compromised drinking water infrastructure. With all this in mind, we set a goal to create a household water filter pitcher that would provide the ultimate protection against all of these contaminants (and more!), while also vastly improving on design. No more ugly plastic water pitchers hiding in your refrigerator! And oh yeah, the water tastes pretty good too - whether its from your tap, or a river in the backcountry.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Weight: 2.4 lbs | 1.1 kg
  • Dimensions: 11.2 x 6.4 in |  285 x 163 mm
  • Filter size: 4.7 in | 119 mm
  • Meets NSF 53 standard for reduction of lead, mercury, chromium III and Cadmium 
  • Meets NSF 42 standard for chlorine reduction 
  • Meets US EPA drinking water standards for bacteria and parasites

We went through many rounds of design in collaboration with our partner, Soren Rose Studio to achieve our main objective: a beautifully designed pitcher, easy to clean and easy to use with the most powerful filtration technology.

STRETCH GOAL - Help us get to 75k!!!

We decided to create a STRETCH GOAL of $75,000! If we hit this goal, we will offer new colors (to ship in JUNE) of the LifeStraw Home - including Aqua and Gray. This stretch target will not only provide you with more options, but will increase access to safe water - both domestically and globally. Help us reach this new target by spreading the word!

Risks and challenges

The LifeStraw Home has already been independently tested against all claims of filtration performance. We are launching this project on Kickstarter in order to raise funds to invest in mass production molds and to subsequently ramp up our production capabilities. Our biggest risk is if this project has a huge volume of backers, we may not be able to fulfill the full balance of LifeStraw Home units in April. If this happens, we may need to further invest in increased production to meet delivery timelines and volume commitments.
