Burb Mom is proud to announce a series of events through out the Dallas – Fort Worth metroplex over the next two weeks sponsored by PUR. PUR’s Water on Wheels Tour will be making multiple stops in our neighborhoods. Not only are these events family-friendly, fun and educational…
PUR is giving away a $400 gift certificate from Lowes right here on Burb Mom.
One of the things that attracted us to this project (beside the $400 giveaway) was the really good things PUR is doing around the world to improve the quality of drinking water.
Water is one of the basic elements of life. Yet, about 4,000 children in developing countries die every day from illness and disease related to unsafe drinking water.
- Many children in developing countries simply don't have access to clean, safe water in their communities. With no running water, many families have no choice but to drink from rivers and streams contaminated with bacteria, parasites and viruses.
- In collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), P&G developed a low-cost water purification technology, a powdered product that effectively reduces parasites, bacteria and other contaminants found in water.
- This program distributes water purification technology in the form of PUR packets, which are as small as a tea bag “ each tiny packet can transform up to 10 liters of contaminated water into clean, purified water within minutes.
- To date, the program has provided more than 1.8 billion liters of clean drinking water to people in developing nations.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of PUR water filtration systems are donated to help fund the program.
