Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy


Contact us to arrange international shipping BEFORE ordering. Free shipping offers apply only to the continental United States.  Not all items ship internationally. 




WE DO NOT SHIP TO FREIGHT FORWARDERS, Industrial parks or warehouses under any circumstances.


Delays in delivery or failure to deliver due to a customer providing an incorrect or undeliverable address is the responsibility of the customer.  No refunds, exchanges, credits or repeat shipments will be issued until the items are returned to us by the mail system, if they are at all.  Any fees associated with recalling the package are the responsibility of the customer.  You must call us if a certain carrier does not deliver to your specified shipping address prior to your order so we can assure propper arrangements are made.  Failure to do so will result in no refund or exchange until the package is returned to us by that carrier, which may take weeks or longer, if at all.

APO/FPO: A $15 S&H fee is added to these orders.   Free shipping does not apply to APR/FPO orders.  All items go USPS Parcel Post or Priority Mail, insured and are shipped FOB.  It is concievable that APO items may arrive with customs duties or taxes due - this is your responsibility.  We make no guarantees on delivery times, they may be anywhere from 1-6 weeks. After your item is turned over to the military mail system from the USPS it is no longer our responsibility and all risk has passed to the consumer.

CANADA:  A $15 handling and forms fee applies. Final shipping charges may vary from those you see at checkout and an additional invoice for shipping will be sent to you to pay with PayPal.  Free shipping and fixed shipping offers do not apply to Canada.  The customer is responsible for any duties or taxes owed when the item arrives to you.


Processing your order may take 1-3 business days before shipping occurs regardless of shipping service chosen.  Longer ship times apply to a few products as noted in their product description.   To be environmentally friendly we may recycle shipping boxes. 


International shipments will arrive with import taxes due by you which you agree to pay.  Any items confiscated by customs are the responsibility of the purchaser and will not be refunded or replaced.


For items marked "delivered" by the UPS or USPS delivery confirmation service, or signature required services of UPS or USPS, no refund will be available should you not receive your item until a full investigation has been conducted by the service in question.  This may take several months.

Orders of 1 or 2 LifeStraws may be mailed First Class mail, not USPS Priority as chosen at checkout.

Return shipping on APO/FPO or international items is always your responsibility no matter the reason for return.  The S&H fee charged to ship your product is nonrefundable.  Any APO/FPO  or itnernational returns that arrive to us with taxes, duties or fees due will either be refused or that amount will be subtracted from any refund.
