PUR Flavor Options Review and Giveaway!

Growing up I loved to drink flavored water. All of the brands of flavored water were expensive. So I was naturally thrilled when I had the Opportunity to try out the PUR Flavor options pitcher. What attracted me to it was the fact that is Earth friendly and doesn’t come in lots of plastic bottles. You can take the water bottles you have and refill them with better tasting water than you buy by bottle. Some thing else that I love is that it doesn’t flavor the whole pitcher, just when you want a little kick to your beverage you just push the button and enjoy. Not to mention it is Sugar and Calorie free! It’s not like when you make Kool-aid and your children fight over what flavor to have. You can totally take out the cartridge and switch them out. No more fights! There are certain times when you just want good cold water. For example when you first wake up in the morning. The flavor button lets you have that option. You control how much flavor you want as well. Some people just don’t like flavored water. They can also enjoy this pitcher too, even if they just offer the flavor option to guests.

I really enjoyed tasting the raspberry flavored water. It was really good. The flavor was crisp and refreshing. I offered some to my family and they really enjoyed it too. It will be a great way to get my son to drink more water. I also tried the water without the flavor and I could taste a difference. The assembly is really easy and the pitcher is very attractive. I love the slender shape of it. I have lots of stuff in my refrigerator so it fit nicely in the door. When it is time to change the filter there is a light that turns red. You don’t have to mess with a little cling that falls off and gets lost. I think it is a must have. Not only does it taste delicious but, it is great for the environment and it helps people around the world have the opportunity to have clean drinking water.

The pitcher costs $29.99. PUR Flavor Options also has a faucet mount that goes right on your kitchen faucet. The faucet mount costs $49.99. The flavor cartridges cost for $9.99 for a 2 pack that contains up to 75 glasses of flavor per cartridge. The flavors are Raspberry, Strawberry, Lemon and Grape. Check out how much you will save with PUR by using the savings calculator.

PUR Flavor Options was named The Household Product of the Year in January 2009. PUR also does a lot of work for helping children and their families in developing countries have access to clean safe water in their communities. In collaboration with the US Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, Procter and Gamble developed a low cost water purification technology, a powdered product that effectively reduces parasites, bacteria and other containment found in water.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of PUR products are donated to help fund the CDSW Program. When consumers make the choice to buy PUR they are not only providing clean water for their families but for families all over the world.

Here are some important facts about the benefits of drinking water.
* Research shows that mild dehydration can lead to lethargy in infants and significant impairment of cognitive function, leading to confusion and irritability in children and adults. In children, dehydration may even cause diminished mental capabilities.
*It takes about two liters of water (a little more than 8 cups), along with your normal diet to replace the fluids lost though your breathing, perspiration, urine and bowel movements.
* Water can help prevent kidney and liver problems by helping to flush toxins that burden these vital organs.

Weight Management Fact- Substituting water for a regular soda (approximately 150 calories) every day, along with participating in moderate activity can promote healthy weight.

Water Filtration facts
* PUR is the first leading brand to claim removal of pharmaceuticals identified in U.S. tap water- more than 99% in the PUR faucet mounts and 96% in the PUR pitcher.
PUR filtration systems remove 99.9% of microbial cysts such as Giadia and Cyrptosporidum parvun, which can lead to intestinal illness.
* PUR filtration systems remove 98% of lead and 97% of chlorine (taste and odor)
In 2005, more than 60 million people were affected when their water systems failed to monitor contaminants including lead, correctly.
* The EPA reported approximately 10-20 percent of human exposure to lead is attributable to lead in tap water.

Did you know that making bottles to meet America’s demand for bottled water requires more that 1.5 million barrels of oil every year? That is enough to fuel some 100,000 U.S. cars for a year. If you think that is scary check this out. Only 23% of plastic water bottles are recycled in the U.S. resulting in 38 billion plastic water bottles being discarded.
