#GETCAIRN

You may or may not have seen or heard us talk about our Cairn box, but if you don’t know… now you know 🙂 We discovered it in August, 2015, and have been receiving their monthly adventure subscription boxes ever since. The best day of the month is the day our Cairn packages show up, and quite honestly we were just musing over how just having this stuff in inventory set us up nicely for our most recent backpacking trip. Here’s a brief list of what we used. All stuff we stockpiled and didn’t know we needed. for less than $30.00/month and the value is WAYYYY more.

And on top of all that, LifeStraw believes that doing good is good business. Through their Follow the Liters program, for every LifeStraw purchased, a school child around the world receives safe water for an entire school year.
