World Water Day 2010 - Giveaway (Closed)

More than one billion people do not have access to safe water.

Every day more than 4,000 children in developing countries die, simply because they don't have clean drinking water.

Pure drinking water isn't just a problem "somewhere else."  Right here in the United States, traces of pharmaceutical drugs were found in the drinking water supplies serving more than 51 million Americans.  Water that seems clean can contain traces of antibiotics, hormones, anti-depressants, and other medications.


My family uses a PUR Flavor Options pitcher for our drinking water.  I'm glad to know that a portion of the proceeds from the sales of PUR water filtration systems are donated to help fund the Children’s Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) Program. When you buy a PUR system, not only are you providing clean water for yourself and your family, but you’re also donating a week’s worth of clean water to a child in the developing world.  Sounds like a win-win situation to me!

In addition, PUR is encouraging everyone to learn about World Water Day, which is happening on Monday March 22.  In recognition of the first statistic I cited above, the theme for this year's event is Water Quality.  Click on World Water Day to find more information, including how you can help, and links to US and global events.

As part of this promotion, five lucky readers will each win a water bottle, courtesy of PUR.  And not just any water bottle:  this is a very cool SIGG water bottle.
