GIVEAWAY: Royal Berkey Water Purifier ($283 Value)


I feel like Santa. Or maybe a really famous philanthropist who is saving the world one gallon of clean, pure water at a time.

That’s because this week one of my sponsors and I are teaming up to give away a Royal Berkey Water Purifier to one of you lucky readers, and these babies are arguably the most efficient, cost-effective water purifiers in the world.

My love affair with the Berkey began in the mountains of rural Mexico in the summer after I turned 19. I spent that summer in a remote Mexican village, teaching indigenous children how to read and write in Spanish. The only water was from a natural spring.

I lived with a team of elderly Bible translators, and every day they’d pay a local boy to run down to the stream and fetch them a bucket or two of water. He’d tromp back up the hillside with our bucketful of water and an eager smile on his face. We’d pay him, then dump the water into a Berkey water purifier. No electricity needed. No moving parts to constantly replace. Easy. Simple. Clean. Efficient.

We used the Berkey water for everything — drinking, cooking, hand washing our dishes, brushing our teeth.

But the Berkey Water Purifier isn’t only good for rural use. In fact, it’s perfect for the urban and suburban home. It not only removes chlorine, pharmaceuticals, and other nasties from your tap water, but can also remove fluoride if you buy the right filter.

Plus, it’s casually portable. You can easily take it with you when you move out of your rental!

And little ol’ me?

I get to give one of you lucky readers this amazing water purifier for FREE!

    A Berkey has been on my list of wants for a while now, since our city water isn’t that great. I would love to win it! :)

  4. MamaCassi says

    i’ve been using a distiller for years, but was going to look into something that used less energy and was easier. and then this comes to my inbox! so cool! if i could find a good filter that removed fluoride and could handle water for 7+ people on a daily basis, i’d be preaching it to everyone! cause lots of people are looking for a good filter!

  5. says

    Really enjoy the info shared here. Good to learn a little about this water filter as we prefer to filter our then to purchase unknown quality.

    The metal housing of the Berkey is a big plus. I wish it were entirely stainless rather than having some plastic components.

    Thanks again.

  6. says

    I have been talking about these beautiful things for about 5 yrs., since the first time I laid eyes on one. Would totally excite me to have clean/free of chlorine and flouride water for my family to drink! Fingers crossed on this one!:)

  7. heather says

    Thanks for this change to win… I have also been wanting one of these for some time. I keep looking and looking at them but still have not purchased one. Not sure why… must do, soon.

  8. Cindi says

    I know someone who has one of these and it is fantastic! I would love to own one myself, it’s just not in the budget right now. But I would love to win it!

  9. Katie says

    Oh my goodness! I would go nuts if I won this. I have been hoping to get one for so long, but the cost prevents me from getting it. *crossing my fingers!!*

  10. Elisheva Neffinger says

    Thanks so much for these giveaways! I would love nothing more in the world than to be able to have clean water, but a broke college student like me just can’t afford the luxury of health :-/ isn’t that crazy?

  11. Joan C says

    Would love to win a Berkey. We are surrounded by farmland and run-off, so we don’t drink water from the tap.

  12. Colleen says

    I’m using a very old (1970’s) electric Sears water purifier with charcoal filters. Good, but no Berkey by a long shot. This is my dream come true. One of these days I will own a Berkey, it’s just a matter of time and money.

  13. rachel says

    Would love to win this! Have been watching them for several years but not in the budget! Thanks for the giveaway.

  14. Crystal says

    Would love a Berkey. Need a system that filters out fluoride as I have thyroid issues. I’ve done research and this is the system I want!
