WATER WEEK, HUGE SALE

WATER WEEK, HUGE SALE

 

Happy World Water Week!
Sept 6-10th is World Water Week.

Multi-Pure will donate a portion of profits on every sale of a drinking water system purchased to Water for People.
Also, If you purchase a filter from www.GoGreenWaterFilter, every filter will be on SALE, PLUS you will get to pick a **FREE** gift.
(Emergency Filter great for traveling OR De-Chlorinating Shower Filter)

Water For People helps people in developing countries improve quality of life by supporting the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and hygiene education programs. http://www.waterforpeople.org/

Multi-Pure Corporation was “green” long before it was fashionable to be so! For 40 years Multi-Pure has manufactured drinking water systems that help provide solutions to environmental problems such as plastic water bottles, harmful contaminants, and the careless waste of precious resources. We’re proud of the “green” products we manufacture, using materials that are biodegradable and come from renewable resources.

1 Multi-Pure water filter cartridge = 12,000 8oz plastic water bottles!
What happens when you throw away your old, used cartridge? The used cartridge is actually GOOD for the landfills! It continues to absorb even more chemical pollutants in the ground.

One of my Facebook friends sent this to me and I think this is a great way to Help Haiti!!

Network: Global

End Time: Friday, January 22, 2010 at 5:00pm

DescriptionHello Friends,

How many of you have old cell phones laying around right now? I’d be willing to say that the majority of us have at least one. In my case, I actually have 3.

Recycling our old cell phones is something that we all know we should do, but just haven’t gotten around to it. Well, now there’s a urgent reason to do so!

Phones For Haiti is providing disaster relieve for the victims of the quake by recycling our old cell phones for free. They refurbish and sell them in developing countries. The proceeds generated from our donations will be given directly to the American Red Cross to help fund their efforts in Haiti.

So how do you contribute?

Just visit the following link, print pre-paid shipping label, place cell phone(s) in box and drop in the mail. It’s that simple!

www.phonesforhaiti.com

This is an awesome way for us to all give back, regardless of our current financial position. So, what do you guys and girls say? Let’s all join together by shipping our old phones this Monday, January 18th!

To show your commitment, please RSVP to this event and invite all of your friends too!

Sincerely,

Josh Davis
