What is California Proposition 65, and why are there warning labels on LifeStraw products?

LifeStraw filters are rigorously tested to meet protocols established by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and NSF International/ANSI. Additionally, LifeStraw products are made from BPA-free, high-quality, food-grade materials.

The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (commonly referred to as Proposition 65), requires manufacturers to include warnings on packaging and websites for products that may expose users to chemicals that are included on the state’s Proposition 65 list.

Prop 65 is “a right to know law” and does not expressly prohibit the sale of products containing its listed chemicals, it does require the manufacturer to provide a "clear and reasonable" warning. A Proposition 65 warning does not mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements. There are currently over 900 chemicals listed on the Proposition 65 list. We have included the warning on products in order to be in compliance with Prop 65.
