I fell in love with Puerto Rico the first time I stepped on the sand, since then I have dreamt of making it my permanent home. I am compelled to give back to her in any way that I can. LifeStraw has provided me the chance to make a MEANINGFUL DIFFERENCE to the people whom I have come to know and care deeply about. Hurricane Maria devastated the infrastructure and most of the island resources. There are still major parts of the island without electricity and water. The water available to most of the island is not potable (drinkable) and has to be boiled or purified every time they need a drink. LifeStraw does not require electricity, filter changes or chemicals and provides 1,000 liters of clean water. This will allow anyone to get clean water from any river, pond, stream or standing water source. PLEASE DONATE TODAY…Thank you!
Due to the overwhelming number of storms and flooding hitting the Southern United States, several Caribbean islands and Puerto Rico, we have expanded our Relief Fund to cover additional areas experiencing boil water notices and lack of clean drinking water. LifeStraw has always felt a responsibility to respond to problems of water quality around the world. The company is making initial donations of product to affected populations and the Safe Water Fund helps us to expand the number of people we can reach. Together, we can help affected communities access clean drinking water in times of crisis.
One LifeStraw Go provides 1,000 gallons of safe water – that’s equivalent to over 8,000 single use plastic bottles.
One LifeStraw Community provides 264,000 gallons of safe water - that's enough to provide safe water to 100 people per day.
