Win a MAVEA Water Filtration Pitcher

Win a FREE Mavea Water Filtration Pitcher!

Earlier this week I wrote about the amazing MAVEA Water Filtration Pitcher and how it turned me into a water lover. It’s not just me, either; my husband commented (totally without prompting) that the MAVEA filtered water “tastes different — not like that stuff that comes out of our tap.” Ha! Fooled him, didn’t we?

Not only do the folks at MAVEA provide a 100% BPA-free pitcher and an easy way to recycle the used filters, they have now generously offered to GIVE A FREE MAVEA Water Filtration Pitcher to one of you!

Just leave a comment on this post telling us about your relationship with water — unique conservation method, what you look for in filtered water, how you get your minimum daily amount of water, etc.

One of you will be selected at random from the comments section. Comments that will be included in the contest will close on Friday, October 29, 2010, at 11:59 pm, EST. Good luck!


  1. I drink tap :(

  2. I’d been wondering for the last couple of years when someone would introduce a BPA-free water pitcher, & this has exceeded my expectations! Would love to trade out my Pur for a MAVEA!!

  4. Water freak here! I have a well with pretty good water, but the minerals are killing my coffee maker. Good water = good coffee. And good tea and the best pizza dough. I want a MAVEA!

  5. Nothing is better than an ice cold glass of water. This pitcher might make it even better though.

  6. I have never been able to drink tap water, seriously gross even before I knew there was all the bad stuff in it. I have always used a Brita Filter, but I would seriously love to try this one! Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. I drink warm lemon water in the morning, my son likes water at room temp, and my daughter has to have it chilled :) We each get in appx. 2 liters a day. This pitcher would be a great item to own!

  8. With my 6 month old son, filtered water is a must. Scary things in the tap water…

  9. I drank tap until recently, when I switched to a Pur water pitcher. I definitely taste a huge difference. I’m not quite used to it yet, and I keep going to the tap!

  10. I drink water at home through the filter on the fridge. Being a teacher, there is not much chance to leave the room. I honestly (if lucky) drink 16 ounces during the school day.

    Having a way to filter great tasting water at work that would not require me to buy plastic bottles would be great. I could place the MAVEA in my fridge in the classroom and drink water til my heart’s content.

    I usually opt out of bottled water and wait til I get home and never get a full days worth, I’m sure.

  11. I live in DC. We’ve had huge lead problems in our water, and once a year they flush the pipes with chlorine. Its terrible. That said, I just filter with a Brita, I refuse to buy bottled water ever. So far, the lead hasn’t driven me crazy, or the filters are working.

  12. Our drinking water is filtered through the fridge. (That’s what we tell ourselves!) I just try not to think about it.

  13. We always go refill our 5 gallon jugs from the filter at the grocery store. You can’t beat $1.30 for 5 gallons of h20! However, something really exciting has happened and we are the proud new owners of our first house WITH…… drum roll please… a spring fed pond in the back! We are totally going to figure out how to make this water drinkable.

  14. I drink about 10 glasses of Pur-filtered water a day, room temperature.

  15. My dad is an environmental engineer, so I grew up unafraid of tap water. (Gasp!) Unless it tastes awful, I usually drink tap and am not picky about water. Now I keep a PUR filter in the fridge, but it’s mostly to have cold water on hand. I drink a lot of water, and can always feel it when I’m not getting enough throughout the day. At work I rely on a (BPA-free) bottle that I refill constantly.

  16. I drink tap, but when I have a pur filter I’ll add it to my repertoire. If I don’t, no biggie, but in the back of my mind I worry about contaminants.
    I think the refrigerator filter is a great idea.

  17. I love cold filtered water from my pitcher, for some reason I fill up a tall class and count out ten long gulps. Usually I fill it again and bring it for later. Mine now is not BPA free, and I would love to be able to recycle the filters!! I know how many I tossed away and it is not a pretty thought.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
