A travel tip and fun giveaway.... Pur Water Pitcher

>> January 06, 2010

So I failed to list bringing a water filtration pitcher as one of my frugal travel tips for our San Diego trip. I know I have mentioned bringing them in the past, and I really can't emphasize it enough.

I am a big drinker... of fluids that is, mostly diet coke and water (no calories)! :-)

Anyway, you never can really count of the purity or taste of water in unknown cities, and I don't want to lug cases and gallons of water back and forth to our hotel room. I try to keep our luggage to a bare minimum, although DH probably doesn't agree with that assessment.
Sometimes we do bring a few bottles, to refill with our water pitcher, so its easy to carry filtered water with us on our adventures! Of course the cost savings is a big deal also!!

PUR contacted me about their program to provide clean drinking water to children around the world. Read the details below...

PUR and the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program (CSDW), is committed to alleviating this global crisis by providing clean drinking water to those in need. *Currently, 4,000 children in developing countries die every day from illness and disease related to unsafe drinking water.

Summit on the Summit
· This coming January PUR is partnering with “Summit on the Summit” (SOTS), a celebrity climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro featuring Jessica Biel, Alexandra Cousteau and others that will raise awareness and funds for clean drinking water efforts. Find out more HERE.
· Dr. Greg Allgood, Founder and Director of CSDW, will be joining the climb as the water authority, educating the climbers on the global water crisis and what is being done to help.

How Can You Help?
When you buy a PUR system, you’re not only helping your family get clean water, but also a family across the world. *A gift that truly keeps giving!1 System = 1 Week: For every PUR system purchase, one week of clean drinking water is provided to a child in the developing world through CSDW. To-date, CSDW has already provided 1.8 billion liters of clean water to children and their families around the world.

Why Is PUR a Smart Choice for Families?· By simply using a PUR water filter, you will remove many of the common contaminants found in drinking water. Including: 94% of atrazine, 98% of lead and other metals, 99.9% of microbial cysts and 96-99% of pharmaceuticals.

· Switching from bottled water to filtered water and a reusable bottle can save one person up to $600 a year and eliminate up to 3,200 plastic bottles.

And as bonus for sharing this information with you, PUR has offered to give one reader a PUR pitcher for their own use! Our fridge has a filter on it already, but like I said even if you don't need a pitcher for every day use, think of it as a cheap and easy way to have clean water on vacation!!!

In honor of our use of a similar water pitcher on our travel adventures, leave a comment on how you save money while traveling OR STAYING IN HOTELS, ANY travel, vacation tips!!!

The giveaway ends Friday, Janurary 15th at midnight (AZ time of course!). Please make sure you leave your email address, so I can contact the winner. I will use a random number generator to pick the giveaway winner!

Let the travel sharing tips BEGIN!!!

When traveling by car, we usually pack sandwiches and cans of soda in a cooler, that way when we get hungry we don't have to stop at fast food places.

I love Rovia for booking travel. We got some great hotel deals on our last trip. I have a link to it on mysavvysavings.com.

One of the things we have done is bring a crockpot. That way you can buy food at the grocery store and either make a meal that cooks all day or heat up some prepared food.
