Pur Flavor Pitcher Review and Giveaway

****This contest is closed. Thanks to all who entered. The winner is: Barbara! Congrats!****




A few weeks ago, I spoke with Lindsay at PUR about doing a promotion for the PUR Flavor Pitcher.

I am so tired of drinking water that smells like bleach and other chemicals. Say what they may, but I just don't think that stuff is safe. I also have "issues" with Ollie's water, my boyfriend. He lives in the hills and has well water that is so hard and full of minerals.

Well, Lindsay graciously sent me a PUR Flavor Pitcher to try out.

Folks, PURe is exactly what I got.

I'll tell you straight up that I am not a fan of water, but I did love the taste of PUR water. I find myself drinking a lot more now that I have the PUR Flavor Pitcher.

I was also very apprehensive about the "flavor" part of the pitcher. The PUR Flavor Pitcher comes with the raspberry flavoring, plus I was sent the lemon flavoring. With the PUR flavor packet, I can control the amount of flavor I want and it has just the right amount of sweetness: not syrupy and not absent. There isn't that filmy feel in my mouth after drinking it, nor is there that "after taste". You know the one.



PUR Facts

Did you know that you can save up to $600 a year just by switching to a PUR Water Filter? That's right, PUR is up to 8x cheaper than bottled water. Plus, we all know that we need to stay away from those nasty plastic bottles.

Did you know that a report release in March 2008 reported that variouss pharmaceutical compounds had been found in the water systems of 24 major metropolitan areas in the United States? Good news. A PUR Water Faucet-Mount can reduce that number by 99% and the PUR Pitcher can reduce it by 96%.

The Children's Safe Drinking Water Program or CSDW


In 2004, P&G partnered with a diverse network of organizations to create the Children's Safe Drinking Water program, providing awareness of this significant global issue and enabling others to help solve this problem. The Children's Safe Drinking Water Program is the focal philanthropic program of P&G's overall cause program, P&G's Live, Learn, and Thrive TM initiative.

P&G is committed to improving the lives of people around the globe, saving children's lives and providing clean drinking water to as many people as possible. As the creator and producer of the PUR packets, P&G provides both its technical expertise and financial support for this work, in addition to human resources, manufacturing facilities, research and advocacy for this global issue. To date, P&G has invested more than $25 million toward clean drinking water.

Working with organizations such as PSI, CARE, World Vision, Aquaya Institute, USAID, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the International Council of Nurses, Johns Hopkins University Center for Communication Programs, Save the Children, Samaritan's Purse and Americares, P&G helps distribute PUR packets to people in developing countries and emergency relief situations across the globe.

To date, the Children's Safe Drinking Water program has delivered over 1 billion liters of clean drinking water. And we are committed to delivering three and a half billion liters by 2012, more than doubling the efforts of our first four years.

Get involved with the work we are doing with charitable organizations and educational programs that support this effort to bring clean water to people in need around the globe.

Together we can make a difference.


Please, take a look at the Children's Safe Drinking Water Program and view it for yourself.

This was interesting but also scary.
Lead could be in my water without my knowing it.
I'd think that it would always be removed.

That sounds pretty cool. I too would be worried about the after taste AND I definitely know which one. Bleck!

JulieChats said...

Good for you drinking more water! I love it & ours tastes great so I hope someone who really needs it wins the pitcher. I can't tell you how many places I've visited & hated the water, Tempe, Arizona had to be the worst. I know now why people have those big bottles at home! I guess I'm just spoiled growing up & still living in Oregon!

Happy VGNO! Stopping by late again....
