Sales of LifeStraw® help save lives around the world.
For each LifeStraw® sold, one school child in the developing world receives clean water for an entire school year.
- A comprehensive program to improve school water quality results in a nearly 50% reduction in diarrheal illness.
- Safe, clean water in schools results in a 42% reduction in absenteeism.
- In many developing countries school-age girls are tasked with gathering water; reducing this burden directly increases the amount of time girls are in school learning.
