Green Living: Using a Water Filter to Save Money
Our family loves to drink water. We are constantly drinking water out of water bottles in an effort to get the best tasting water we can. One of my pet peaves is finding empty water bottles lying around. I am really trying to be cautious of the amount of waste we are adding to our environment. This led me on a search to find a solution to my problem. I have always wanted to buy a water filter pitcher, and when the makers of PUR Water Filters approached me about a post, this sounded like a perfect fit.
PUR Water Filters Pitcher
The product I reviewed was the 7 Cup PUR Water Filters Pitcher. Getting great tasting water has never been easier. All you have to do is attach the filter to the inside lid of the pitcher and fill the pitcher with water. The water goes thought the filter and all the contaminants and yucky stuff are instantly removed from your drinking water. The EPA and CDC estimates that there are up to 16 million waterborne illnesses per year associated with drinking water. Who even knew we could actually get sick from drinking tap water?
If you are frugal like I am, then you will be glad to know that the Eco-friendly PUR Pays for Itself. By switching from bottled water to drinking tap water filtered by PUR, consumers can save up to $1,000 per year. Aside from the annual savings, PUR also helps the planet by reducing some of the 38 billion plastic water bottles that are discarded in the U.S. every year.
Here are some additional benefits of using a PUR Water Filter
