- Pseudomonas aeruginosa,

Shelf life: Since 2005, all LifeStraws have been sent to developing countries for immediate use. Because of demand, there simply haven't been any in storage for more than 3 years, so the manufacturer has listed a shelf life of 3 years. That said, there's nothing in the LifeStraw that will decay, corrode, or "go bad", so it should be fine to store for years to come.
