Join PUR in the Movement to Provide Safe Drinking Water Worldwide (and Win a PUR Sigg Water Bottle!)

Did you know that millions of people around the world lack access to clean drinking water? That’s why 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. This program has helped educate people on the importance of clean water and distributed PUR water purification packets -- an innovation that easily turns contaminated H2O into safe, drinkable water.

Here in the United States, most of us have access to clean drinking water. However, PUR wants you to know that traces of pharmaceutical drugs -- such as hormones, antibiotics, antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication and painkillers -- have been found in US drinking water. PUR’s water filtration products are designed to reduce the pharmaceutical compounds and other contaminants that might show up in your tap water. Best of all, when you purchase a PUR system, you’re not only improving your own water quality, but that of people around the world through the CSDW Program. For every product sold, 10 liters of clean water will be donated to help save lives.

Visit www.PURwater.com to learn more about PUR’s water filtration products, as well as their efforts to provide safe drinking water around the world through CSDW.

  124. Drinking water contaminants such as lead and mercury can seriously affect your health. PUR filtered water reduces lead** and mercury along with many other contaminants. And PUR water filters are endorsed by the American Dental Association® as effective filters that do not remove fluoride from tap water.
