LifeStraw water filters are designed by the Swiss-based Vestergaard Frandsen.
Originally developed for people living in developing nations and for distribution in a humanitarian crisis, LifeStraw water filters have gained popularity as consumer products. Distributed to crew, water can be consumed from any source, eliminating the requirement for separate potable water in the form of plastic bottles or Polyethylene.
