How I Save Money Filtering My Own Water
That's right. I save money every day by using my Pur water filter pitcher for all of my drinking water. I've had my Pur water filter pitcher for about four years and it's still going strong!
I really think buying bottled water is one of the worst things we can do for our pocketbooks as well as for the environment. I mean, sure, occasionally I buy a bottle of water when I'm out somewhere and there's no alternative, but for everyday, all of those bottles are such a waste!
Most of the time people just throw them away or if they're feeling green, they might recycle them. But by filtering your own water at home (and refilling the bottles you do buy--please wash after each use, of course), you save yourself loads of money and help reduce your carbon footprint.
Each Pur water filter cleans gallons of water (depending on the size pitcher you guy). This pitcher shown here cleans 40 gallons of water. Depending on how much water you drink, this can last several months. Replacement filters are inexpensive and can cost as low as $5 each. This is a whole lot less than paying for cases of bottled water!
This is the water pitcher I use every day to filter my drinking water. I love the ease and low cost of using my PUR water pitcher.
