    Unless you've been living under a rock (or out on a hike without Wifi) you're probably aware it's holiday sale season — which means there are an overwhelming amount of deals on things you never knew you needed in your life.

    One of those items you TOTALLY need? The LifeStraw! It's a magical, compact tube that can turn any pond, lake, or river water into water that is totally safe to drink.

    As we all know, straws were recently CANCELLED, but this is one straw is actually here to STAY — and right now you can get it for only $14.97 (originally $19.95).

    Just look at that bacteria infested, yucky water next to that "WOW WHO IS SHE?!" water!

    LifeStraw

    ~How it works~: The tube is a hollow fiber membrane that filters out 99.9% of bacteria, protozoan parasites, and microplastics. It can filter up to a minimum of 1,000 gallons of water. That's about four years of clean drinking water.

    LifeStraw

    ~How to use:~ Simply open the caps on either side of the LifeStraw. Submerge the base of the straw into the water and suck in a few times to get the filter going. Then drink freely! When you're done, breathe into the straw to puff out any remaining water, close up those caps, and be on your way.

    A reviewer in Utah said, "Last week, we went hiking up a slot canyon in the Zion National Park wilderness area. Like an idiot, I took off without two water bottles. It was a 90 degree day on a 10-mile out and back trail. I bought a LifeStraw at REI, but never used it. It was my lifeline on this hike. Every 15 minutes, I got a drink out of ice cold North Creek. The LifeStraw worked perfectly. I had no stomach issues. Please buy yourself a LifeStraw just for these kind of wilderness situations where dehydration can happen quickly and weaken you."

    If that isn't incredible enough (it is) LifeStraw also has a line of "daily use" items that use the same technology! Here are some of our favorites:

    1. A LifeStraw Home made of environmentally friendly glass that'll fit up to seven cups of pure drinking water by riding it of bacteria, parasites, micro-plastics, lead, mercury, chlorine and other organic chemical matter that can come from your sink.

    Promising review: "Then suddenly I stumbled upon the LifeStraw Home, a fairly new product, as it was still a Kickstarter in 2018. The product delivers clean, crisp water in a glass container, and my purchase contributes to a great environmental and humanitarian cause to boot. Glad I was patient in my search and found the LifeStraw Home." —JMantooth

    Price: $21.98 (original price: $39.95). A 25% discount will be applied at checkout!

    2. A LifeStraw Go bottle so no matter where you are in the world you can have access to and store clean drinking water for daily use.

    LifeStraw

    Promising review: "I bought this for a trip to a country that had limited access to fresh water. I was able to fill up right from their tap without any concern. It also saved dozens of plastic water bottles from being used and cut down on costs. It is really a no-brainer. Plus, I loved the design."—Customer

    3. A kid-friendly water bottle for your kids to bring to school and afternoon activities so you no longer have to worry about your kids drinking bacteria, lead, and microplastic–contaminated water.

    LifeStraw

    Promising review: "I got this for my kids to use and I could not be more satisfied. The assurance of knowing what is going in their bodies is priceless. They mostly use theirs at school from the water fountain or the classroom sink. I feel so much better knowing that the water is being filtered and that there isn't any chemicals or lead or heavy metals being ingested. It is so easy to use and the size is great. There are so many color combinations and it comes with different decals to personalize."—Customer

    Price: $21.98 (original price: $39.95). A 25% discount will be applied at checkout!

    To top it all off, your purchase also has impact! For every LifeStraw you buy, a child receives safe drinking water for a school year.

    LifeStraw

    So not only can you save 25% off on a magical straw that could potentially save your life one day, you can also save 25% off on that same technology in products you get to use every day. All of this, while making a huge difference in other people's lives. Thank you LifeStraw!
