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!

    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!

    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.

    What a spectacular giveaway – a water purifier is definitely on my long term wish list, but a hard expense to justify (as I tend to spend all my money at Whole Foods).

    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.
