Community Filtration

LifeStraw personal water filtration system is ideal for the individual.  Personal use may include backpacking, camping, hiking, emergency preparedness, international mission work, and travel.  When working internationally and in post-disaster or austere situations, this is the water filtration our team uses and we always leave them behind with our crews on the ground in foreign nations.  Some benefits of the personal system include:

  • FIlters up to 1,000 liters (264 gallons) of water
  • Removes 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria (>LOG 6 reduction), including E. coli
  • Removes 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites (>LOG 3 reduction), including Giardia & Cryptosporidium
  • Reduces turbidity, filtering down to 0.2 microns
  • Weighs only 2 oz
  • Does NOT use iodine or iodinated resin



Why a LifeStraw Partnership?

Family Filtration

LifeStraw Community filtration system is perfect for the sustainable communities we're helping to build.  This system is a high-volume, point-of-use community water purifier with built-in safe storage, which provides microbiologically safe drinking water for common areas where multiple people dwell or commune.  Some benefits of the personal system include:

  • FIlters from 70,000 - 100,000 liters of water, enough to serve a community for several years
  • Removes 99.9999% of viruses (>LOG 5 reduction)
  • Removes 99.9999% of bacteria (>LOG 6 reduction)
  • Removes 99.99% of protozoan cysts (>LOG 4 reduction)
  • Requires no electrical power, batteries, or replacement parts
  • Requires no running water or piped-in water supply
  • ​25-liters (6.5 gallons)

Whether it be a hand filtration system or a community well, we're committed to bringing safe drinking water to the communities in which we serve.  Currently, we're raising funds for projects in Uganda, Africa and Vieques, Puerto Rico.  


Puerto Rico

Currently, we are working to provide safe drinking water in Vieques, a small island off the mainland of Puerto Rico that was devastated by Hurricane Maria.  The water system has been contaminated and by providing LifeStraw products, we can bring hope to a hurting community.  Will you help us?


Uganda

In Uganda, the price tag on a well runs roughly $5,000 and each day, kids walk miles each way in order to capture water from a stream or another community's well, forcing them to choose drinking water over attending school.  Unfortunately, this is their reality.  Although LifeStraws won't immediately provide the children with relief from having to walk to capture water, it will provide them with safe drinking water.


Personal use for our volunteers

Individual water filtration systems and community systems are a wonderful option for people on the go. Be it our volunteers while traveling overseas, or community members traveling from one location to another, the smaller, individual water filtration systems provide the ideal opportunity to drink clean water all the time. 


There are many reasons we've chosen to partner with LifeStraw.

  1. With LifeStraw's Follow the Liters program, for every LifeStraw product sold, a child in a developing nation will receive clean, safe drinking water for one year.  
  2. For every purchase made from a link on our website, LifeStraw provides Wellness Warrior Foundation with a credit of 10% of your total purchase.
  3. Wellness Warrior Foundation uses that 10% credit to dig wells in these identified communities.


If you're able to donate a filtration system to the Foundation, we simply ask three things:

  1.  Purchase by clicking on any of the pictures below (all will link to the personal filtration system and you can choose your product from there)
  2.  Mail the filtration system to PO Box 1115, Oak Island, NC 28465
