LifeStraw is a global leader in developing innovative filtration and purification products for safe drinking water. It’s pleased to introduce its LifeStraw Go 2-Stage water bottle which features a two-stage filtration process. Firstly it removes bacteria, microplastics and protozoa resulting in microbiologically contaminated water being safe to drink. Secondly it makes the drinking experience better by reducing organic chemicals, chlorine and bad taste. Finally each product sold contributes to LifeStraw’s Give Back Program. This Program makes contaminated drinking water safe to drink for children in developing countries. The Program works by using volunteers who deliver filters, training, planning and follow ups. The results are impressive: to date the Program has provided 3,367,145 students with safe water for one year; delivered 12,220 filters and reached 1,870 schools
What do I use the Go 2-Stage Bottle for?
The new LifeStraw Go 2-Stage is engineered for a broad range of activities. Use it for hiking and running, travelling and everyday use at work, home and the gym. Users can choose from pink, purple, grey, green or blue. LifeStraw Go 2-Stage weighs under 227 g and holds 0.65 litres of filtered water. The bottles meet stringent US EPA standards too and feature a flip top bite valve and carabiner. They are BPA and chemical free, and the raw materials meet US FDA regulations.
“The LifeStraw Go 2-Stage bottle is an evolution of the original LifeStraw Go. It has enhanced functionality in that it also reduces chlorine, organic chemicals and bad taste,” said Alison Hill, LifeStraw’s Managing Director. “This new product helps us achieve our goal, to provide products people can integrate into their daily lives and feel secure about the water they drink.”
How does it work?
The LifeStraw Go 2 uses a two-stage filtration process. Stage one is a hollow fiber membrane that removes 99.9999 percent of bacteria (E. coli and salmonella), 99.9 percent of protozoa (Giardia, Cryptosporidium, etc.), and reduces turbidity by filtering particulate matter to 0.2 microns. Stage two is an activated carbon capsule. It reduces chlorine, organic chemical matter (like herbicides and pesticides), and bad taste. The hollow fiber membrane filters up to 1,000 litres throughout its life. The carbon capsule filters 100 litres. Replacements for both are available.
