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!

Barb Dougherty says
been dying for one of these!! ;-))
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! 🙂
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!
I’m dying for this!!!! Fingers, toes, eyes crossed!
This looks like an amazing product! Thanks for offering it as a giveaway!
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.
I’d love to win this! Hope I did the entry right. Never quite sure on these things.
Thanks so much for this opportunity! Love me some renegade!
Linda Handschue says

Love this product! Beautiful & functional!
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!:)
Would LOVE to win this!
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.
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!

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).
Julie Drigot says
Thanks for giving away a Berkey!
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!!*
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?
Tracy Parsons says
Love the Berkey! looks good and would be good for my me and the whole family. What’s there to lose?
Thanks so much for all the great giveaways!
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.
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.
Debrah Roemisch says
We have an under the sink model and love it but would love to have the portable one for emergency and travel!
Pamela Rose says
What a great give-a way and a great product to anyone.
Would love to win this! Have been watching them for several years but not in the budget! Thanks for the giveaway.
I cannot figure out if I am entered in the opportunity to win this filter. I clicked on enter, but it did not show anything. Puzzled and still wondering.

This is wonderful, so simple and easy to use!Why wouldn’t you want one! Affordable and must for everyone. I have food storage this would be a great product to add and use daily. I love that you can use it daily and in any emergency.
I have been looking at this filter for the last week…what a coincidence that you are giving one away! I love the fact that it does not need to be hooked up to the sink and is portable! It will be so useful to take with me when I’m travelling 🙂
