Spring client, LifeStraw, has been distributing aid to Hurricane Dorian victims. Managing Director, Alison Hill, personally travelled out to the Bahamas as the water situation began to look dire for those living there. Dorian is said to have been the most powerful tropical cyclone on record to strike the Bahamas, and is regarded as the worst natural disaster in the country’s history. LifeStraw will be providing lifesaving filters to the communities in need giving them access to clean drinking water.

This work is in addition to LifeStraw’s Give Back programme – where for every product purchased, LifeStraw provides safe water for an entire school year. It’s a project implemented directly by LifeStraw. By the end of 2019 LifeStraw will have provided one year of safe drinking water to more than 3.3 million students, helped 1870 schools and delivered 12,220 water filters.

LifeStraw Home is their newest product to hit UK shelves in January next year. The Home is a water pitcher that you fill up with tap water, stick in your fridge and it’ll filter all the baddies out (microplastics, bacteria, parasites, heavy metals) but keep the goodies such as potassium, sodium. 


Did you know that we could be ingesting five grams of plastic every week because of polluted water. A recent study commissioned by the WWF entitled ‘No Plastic in Nature: Assessing Plastic Ingestion from Nature to People’ was carried out by the University of Newcastle in Australia. It suggests people are consuming around 2,000 tiny plastic particles each week – adding up to approximately 250 grams a year. With the largest source coming from drinking water.
