PUR Pitcher and Flavor Options Review & Giveaway




Drinking filtered water has always been a must in our house. Whether it is from the fridge or bottled, this is the way it has been for years in most houses though out America and beyond. However buying the super packs of water bottles from the store is neither cost effective nor eco-friendly. What can you do to still get the health benefits of filtered water and be eco-friendly? Ask PUR.

"Switching from bottled to filtered and a reusable bottle can eliminate up to 3,200 plastic bottles and save one person up to $600 annually. The EPA estimates that approximately 20% of Americans' lead exposure is attributed to tap water. PUR filters are certified to reduce many contaminants including 98% of lead, 99% of microbial cysts and 99% of pharmaceuticals."
Wow did you have any idea all that crap was in our tap water? This is what enters our childrens growing bodies and why we have always had filtered water from or in our fridge for them.

Company with a heart..

Everyday 4,000 children in developing countries die from not having clean drinking water. PUR is changing that. With each purchase of a PUR filter a donation is made to Children's Safe Drinking Water which has provided over 1.5 billion liters of clean water to children and their families all over the world.







I had the pleasure of reviewing the PUR pitcher with Flavor Options. From the first day the girls and I were hooked. My girls are used to having watered down juice about a 1:7 ratio and I love Crystal Light and make it buy the gallon full sometimes twice a day. Us mommies know that juice in it's self is not cheap and neither is Crystal Light.
We have found a new super yummy way to not only save the money but also get the girls to drink more water. They had no idea they were drinking PUR water, they just noticed the pitcher looking different. I love that they are not getting the extra sugar like they were with the juice.

The PUR filtered pitcher is easy to use and is slim so it fits right into my fridge door. A very cool feature available on some models is the built in Electronic Filter Life Indicator. No more guessing if it is time to change the filter, the light on the top tells me when. Pricing for the pitcher normally runs from $14.99-$19.99. Replacement filters last 1-2 months and run about $9.99.

What is PUR Flavor Options?

5 super yummy fruit flavors that jazz up any glass of water. Each Flavor Options Cartridge provides up to 75 servings of flavor with no sugar, calories, fat, carbs or die!! You control the amount of flavor...who doesn't like a little control now and then? Flavors include Grape, Lemon, Strawberry, Peach and Raspberry.

I got to try the Lemon and Raspberry. I really liked them both but my girls loved the Raspberry more. Not a problem. You can interchange the cartridges as needed. Take out the Lemon, pop in the Raspberry and your done. A whole new flavor in only seconds. The opened cartridge can then be stored upright in your fridge until it's needed again. How awesome is that?
Also did you know that the PUR Flavor Options was Voted Product of the Year for 2009? After using it myself I can see why.

My family is now tasty water drinkers thanks to PUR and knowing we are doing something healthy for our bodies makes me feel good. Plus having a few extra bucks each month in our pockets doesn't hurt either.
