Giveaway! Royal Berkey With PF-2 Fluoride Filters ($300 Value)

Should A Two Year Old Take Birth Control?

How about heart medications containing nitroglycerin and anti-psychotics such as lithium? Obviously, the answer is no, but it happens every day without our knowledge or consent.

In a study conducted by the Southern Nevada Water Authority, researchers found that drinking water is often laced with a wide variety of active pharmaceuticals and hormonally active chemicals. These drugs come from the 271 million pounds of prescription medications legally dumped into into our waterways by manufacturers, plus the substantial burden added by consumers.

Consumers are considered the biggest contributors to the contamination. We consume drugs, then excrete what our bodies don’t absorb. Other times, we flush unused drugs down toilets. The AP also found that an estimated 250 million pounds of pharmaceuticals and contaminated packaging are thrown away each year by hospitals and long-term care facilities.

Researchers have found that even extremely diluted concentrations of drugs harm fish, frogs and other aquatic species. Also, researchers report that human cells fail to grow normally in the laboratory when exposed to trace concentrations of certain drugs. Some scientists say they are increasingly concerned that the consumption of combinations of many drugs, even in small amounts, could harm humans over decades.

U.S. News & World Report / Science: Tons of Released Drugs Taint U.S. Water (emphasis mine)

Municipal water filtration systems are not equipped to remove these contaminants, but there is a filter I trust to do it for less than it costs to filter a gallon of water using a Brita pitcher. Drumroll please . . .

Introducing Berkey Water Filters!

Giveaway! Royal Berkey With PF-2 Fluoride Filters ($300 Value)If you’ve never heard of them, Berkey claims to be the most powerful and economical water purification systems in the world. Based on corroborating studies from the University of Arizona, Spectrum Labs, and the LA Environmental Toxicology Laboratory, I believe them.

Not only does it remove chlorine and it’s toxic byproducts (oh my goodness, have you SEEN what dioxin can do to a person?), you can order a special additional filter that removes fluorides also. In case you’re wondering why that might be a good idea, please read this post.

Berkey purifiers also remove 99.99999% of pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites while extracting chemicals including herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, VOCs, detergents, cloudiness, silt and sediment.

Cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, aluminum, mercury and other dangerous heavy metals are also removed (95%), as well as nitrates and nitrites, without removing beneficial minerals! Because there are literally too many pharmaceuticals floating around to realistically test for, Berkey does not make claims regarding pharmaceuticals. However, drug molecules are the same size or larger than the VOCs, which Berkey is certified to remove. Since the main issue affecting effectiveness is whether the pores of the filter are small enough to grab the molecule, I feel fairly confident that pharmaceuticals are removed. Add to that that  activated carbon seems to have a particular affinity for drugs – it is often used in emergency settings to filter harmful drugs out of the blood of a poisoned patient – and you could say I sleep well at night regarding this issue.

Would you like to experience the bliss that is crystal clear, amazing tasting water? Good, because I’m giving a Royal Berkey away with the optional fluoride filters!

  1. Jennifer G says:

    Knowing how much my Brita filter DOESN’T remove makes my feel sick. I would love to win a Berkey filter

    • Joanne says:

      I agree! I have been researching water filters and am going dehydrated not wanting to drink water.

      • Sunny says:

        I get so aggravated when I buy something “healthy” (my RO water filter) that is no longer healthy. :(

        • JulieS says:

          I so agree. We bought an expensive RO filter years ago and have always considered our water wonderful. I have to admit though, the idea of this Berkey filter working without electricity is a great feature. I also like the portability of this, so when we go camping or travel, we can take it with us! No more lugging big plastic jugs! I’d love to win this thing!

          • Kirstian says:

            I totally agree JulieS. I have been looking at these for sometime just hasn’t been in the budget. It would be great to not lug the 5 gallon jugs home from the store. Our RO just didnt keep up with our family and it wasnt that great either.

    • Rachel Gillespie says:

      I use a Brita filter because I need to get enough money to make an investment on one that actually works! I really would Love to win a Berkey filter!!!! :-)

      • Kristin says:

        I’d love to win because this is a healthy change my husband can get behind (he’s always skeptical!) and it would have double du of being great for emergency preparedness!

        • alissa brackin says:

          I would LOVE to win this, because my son & I both have digestive issues, and I think some of it has to do with drinking our tap water, and all that is in it!

    • Rozam says:

      I want to win so I can be healthier!!

    • amanda says:

      My parents have had one of these since I was in junior high. Besides being the best tastine water, I would love to have all the nastiness taken out, especially with a baby on the way!

    • Annette says:

      Totally agree!

    • Aubrey Y says:

      We live in the heart of frakking country. It scares me so bad what might be in our water…trying for a baby this year…this would be such a blessing.

    • Jennifer says:

      Berkeys are the BEST!

  2. We’re living in a rental so the Berkey is perfect for us. We can take it with us when we move!

  3. tanya ci says:

    I’ve not seen this filter before but it sounds amazing.

  4. Megan A. says:

    We live in an old house with even nastier old pipes. I’m tired of lugging all my water jugs to the store every few days to load up. Imagine how much time and money I’d save with a Berkey!

  5. Kelsye says:

    I have been wanting a water filter for years now!!! This is so exciting:)

  6. I already have this filter, but another one wouldn’t hurt! :)

  7. Heidi says:

    I would love to have this filter! Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. lindsay says:

    I would love to stop lugging around kids to and from the stores every week to stick up on RO water for the week!!

  9. dianthe says:

    i’ve been wanting a Berkey ever since you first mentioned it – if i won one, i wouldn’t have to buy one! ;)

  10. Valerie says:

    We have a very old (and refurbished) Water Wise distiller that is about to commit suicide. We would love to get a replacement before it completely kicks the bucket. My husband has done everything in his power to detail that machine the last couple of years, which has temporarily solved the mysterious noise and stopping issues, but not for long. Even with our water distiller, we lack the carbon filters that are the only way fluoride and chlorine are eliminated (we just can’t afford it!) and we have to put the water we distill in yucky plastic, BPA-laddened bottles for storage. We have longed for a metal or glass storage container, but they are hard to find and SOOOOO pricey. It breaks my heart that we are only doing a small portion of what I could and should be doing to protect my 3 little ones. Breaks, my. heart. :(

  11. Elis B. says:

    I like berkey.

  12. Beverly says:

    It is scary what is in our water supply. We would love this filter and the opportunity to continue making changes in our home and a safer environment for our children. Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. AmandaLP says:

    I currently use a Brita, which is both tiny, and doesn’t filter out much of what I would want it to!

  14. Melissa says:

    We’ve been wanting a Berkey for so long, but they’re so expensive! I never ever enter myself in these giveaways, but this one is totally worth it.

  15. Amy says:

    We bought a Berkey with the fluoride filters for us a few months ago and I love it. When people come over they comment about how our water tastes like nothing. Our almost 4 year old always says yeah well that’s what it’s supposed to taste like. We bought a second Berkey with the fluoride filters for my FIL, he was always mentioning how dangerous the water is where he lived with the chemicals in it. He seems to really enjoy his too. Since we were so happy with our system we bought the shower filter too.

  16. Hilary says:

    I want one of these so bad! But I really can’t afford it right now. I live in Portland which might be fluoridating, so I figured I have to get one by then:)

  17. Becky L says:

    I have wanted one of these for so long. Winning it would be amazing!

  18. Kouri H says:

    You have lived in the DFW area so you know the type of water we have around here. We drink a ton of water in our house with 4 active kids. We would love to have a Berkley!

  19. Janna says:

    Been wanting one of these for a long time!

  20. Lindsay says:

    I’m hoping to win this for a gift to my parents. We have a berkey light and love it, and I would love to give this to them. They have horrible well water, so they have to buy Ro from wal mart, and they live in the country so they have to make a trip into town just so they can have water to drink. They would love a berkey!

  21. Jiji says:

    I would love to win a Berkey water filter because I do not like the idea of my precious one year old ingesting all of those chemicals and pharmaceutical residues! Sick!

  22. Rita says:

    So excited!

  23. Breza says:

    My parents had a Berkley and we loved it! It would be great to have one of my own.

  24. Manuela says:

    I have heard so much about Berkley, would love to win one!

  25. Teresa says:

    Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance!

  26. Rachel B says:

    I’ve been wanting one of these for a while, we even had it on our wedding registry :). As soon as I heard about them I wanted to have one to have the best drinking water we could.

  27. Sarah says:

    I would love to win the Berkey filter!

  28. sandra says:

    i’d love to win this berkey. i’ve been wanting one for years now but have not been able to purchase it. thank you for this giveaway!

  29. Jenn V. says:

    We have our first baby on the way, due ANY DAY now!! This would be a HUGE convenience for us, rather than hauling our 3-gallon water bottles to the store to get refilled every week! We also have friends who LOVE their Berkeys!

  30. I would love to win a Berkey to provide my family with better water!

  31. Kimberly says:

    Is there anything better than knowing you are keeping your family healthy? It all starts with the basic necessity of pure water!

  32. AJ says:

    Would love to win this! We currently use a brita and I would love to move to the next step up!

  33. Sarah Smith says:

    Thank you so much for this offer. We have been saving our pennies to get a Berkey!

  34. Ellen Kleven says:

    I have been wanting a Berkey for quite some time now. The Brita filter just isn’t quite what I wish it was. Thank you for your blog Heather.


  35. chelsea says:

    We have wanted a berkey for a really long time. We can’t ever derm to get the money for one though! They are really amazing.

  36. Lindsey says:

    I would LOVE to win a Berkey filter!!! We already have a reverse osmosis filter on our kitchen faucet, but sometimes the water tastes “off”, if that makes sense. I have spoken to our filtration company, and they can’t guarantee that 99.99999% of all toxins are being filtered out. Best case is 97%, so I would sure rest easier at night if I knew my family was drinking the best water available!

  37. Julie w. says:

    I would like to not have to worry about what is in our water that shouldn’t be.

  38. Carrie says:

    What a great giveaway! I have had this on my “Want” list for a long time :)

  39. Erin says:

    I’ve had my eye on a Berkey for YEARS!

  40. Christina E. says:

    Would love to win this.

  41. Marian says:

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway, and thank you for your great website. I’ve found a lot of tips on it and I really appreciate you taking the time to share your recipes and knowledge!

  42. sharon says:

    I’m on well water – I’m sure lots of things leach into the ground from around me?

  43. Therese says:

    This would be amazing! Love the Berkey.

  44. Judy M. says:

    I would LOVE to win this water filter because at the present time, I am using a Brita which is not the best. I have read a lot about the Berkey filter and it has always been on my “wish list”. So, I hope I win it, but if I don’t some lucky person will be blessed with one. Thanks for having these give aways.

  45. Ryan says:

    I’ve been dying to get a Berkey for ages now! I was so upset when I learned how useless my expensive Brita is!

  46. Ouida Lampert says:

    I am trying to remove unwanted chemicals from our lives. This seems like a good next step.

  47. Christina says:

    I have been wanting one of these since I read about them a few months ago. We use the Zero Water filter, which is better than Brita and a few others, but still nothing compared to Berkley. Even if I don’t win, I am going to save up to buy one as soon as I can, as it makes me sick to think about my young children drinking unhealthy water. :( BTW – great article! I’ve been obsessing over this topic for months (since I first learned about it) and I love reading about this!

  48. Jesse M says:

    So awesome!! I would LOVE to win a berkey to ensure I always have clean water for my children and family to drink. Along with knowing that I always have clean water to ferment and soak and all the other fun stuff we do to food to make it as nutrient dense and healthy for us as possible!!!

  49. Tessa says:

    I would love to have this for my family.

  50. Megan says:

    My husband and I have been meaning to research water filters/purifiers but haven’t started our search yet…thanks for the info in this post, sounds like Berkey is a great choice!!

  51. Kathryn says:

    Would love to win one because I am currently saving up for one! =)

  52. Susan H. says:

    I want to win because I believe that it is the biggest & best step to help with healing my chronic health issues.

  53. Brianne M says:

    I would love a Berkey Water Filter. I have dental problems related floride but I just don’t have the extra money to be able to afford this water filter. Winning this giveaway would be wonderful!

  54. angie hull says:

    My well water has tons of lime and tastes bad! I would love to win!

  55. Cathy says:

    Excited to see you giving away one of these wonderful water purifiers!! The city water where we live is just terrible, it has so much chlorine in it that it smells like a public pool. We have a water softener and filter from a local water filtering company that takes out most of the worst contaminants but the tap water still tastes bad and has a trace of chlorine. I have a small distiller I use for our drinking water but it’s a hassle to run it every day, we have to wait 4 hours per gallon. My mom just ordered one for their house, we’d love to have one of our own, especially with a toddler in the house. :)

  56. Brittany Ardito says:

    I have been looking for a good quality water filter that can remove fluoride. I would absolutely LOVE to win this filter!

  57. Jody says:

    I live in a rental in a suburban area, yet have a well for all of our drinking water. My landlord says it is too expensive to install a filtration system. A Berkey would take away many of my worries about drinking everything that my neighbors are putting on their lawns…

  58. jami says:

    and fluoride filter? priceless. I’ve been wanting the under sink purification system from Radiant Life, but this would be a great start!

  59. Donna says:

    I’ve been reading a lot about these lately. What a great giveaway!

  60. I’ve had this in my cart on amazon for months but can’t afford it. I would love to win!

    I would love to win a Berkey! I’ve been wanting one for a long time. Thank you!

  62. Rose Holloway says:

    I need a good quality water filter and this looks great

  63. Amanda B. says:

    I go to great lengths to give my kids “clean” food, and my city water should be clean too!

  64. joyce says:

    We live in a farming community where they are continually spraying pesticides/herbicides/insecticides and I worry about water contamination for our family.

  65. Robyn says:

    Very exciting! I’ve been purchasing spring water for a while now and I’d really like to make the switch. Thanks!

  66. Dori says:

    I would LOVE to win this! Thank you for the chance. Have been reading a lot on thyroid issues and how bromine in baked goods and fluoride and chlorine displace iodine in the body… scary stuff! And unfortunately, we can’t rely on our govt to protect us!

  67. Michelle S says:

    We have a Brita but I would love to upgrade!! A Berkey has been on my wishlist for a couple years now. I’m hoping this is the year I can add it to my list of ways I am protecting my family.

  68. A friend of mine has one of these and they are wonderful!!!

  69. I want to win b/c we are all on GAPS diet and this would be a blessing to our family!

  70. Kate Thierry says:

    Oh, I’d LOVE to win this. It’d sure make life easier, not having to lug 5 gallon jugs around! ;)

  71. Tara says:

    My family needs this really bad!

  72. Jennie says:

    I would love to win this system. I just had a baby and i am more concerned than ever about making sure that he is not exposed to anything that I could have prevented. Thanks for bringing this water filter system to my knowledge. If I do not win this, I definitely keep my eye on this! So I would love a fresh start for him with some really clean water! : ),

  73. Lori Langone says:

    A Berkey is at the top of my wish list to protect my family.

  74. Michelle V says:

    I have been wanting a Berkey for a looooong time, but the price has always been an issue. I’d love to win this! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  75. Brianne says:

    I would love to win a Berkey!!

  76. Mamatha says:

    I’ve been wanting to buy one for a long time. Would love to win this.

  77. Justyn says:

    At our current rental house there are unsafe levels of nitrates in the well water, so we have to buy water (plastic jugs- yuck!!) and haul it home every week. It would be such a blessing to have a berkey so that we could drink the well water. :-)

    Thanks for doing the giveaway, Heather!

  78. Beth says:

    I have been looking at these for awhile so I would love to win one!

  79. I’m so excited about this giveaway! Thank you for the chance to win one!

    I’ve wanted one of these FOREVER!!! :) I so hope I win!

  83. Kristin says:

    We jave been wanting a Berkey for a long while, but just haven’t been able to get one yet. I’d LOVE to win one! How fun would that be. Thanks for offering this giveaway! By the way, we used a lot of your Superbowl recipes last night and they all were WONDERFUL! Thank you!

  84. Amber says:

    I want to take necessary steps to ensure that my family is healthy and free from harmful components. I would be really grateful to have this tool for our family.

  85. Crystie says:

    Great giveaway!

  86. Elizabeth Quandt-Evans says:

    I’ve been researching how to heal my family’s dental problems naturally, and would love to be able to use this filter to reduce our flouride exposure. My son was born with imperfect enamel, inherited from his father, and I’m bound and determined to prove the dentists wrong when they say there is nothing I can do for him!!

  87. Jodi says:

    So excited about your giveaway! I have had my eye on the Berkey for some time. I make water kefir soda and would love to STOP buying water from the store to make it!

  88. Aniko says:

    I would love one, so my kids can drink clean water :)

  89. Courtney says:

    We live in a rental with questionable water and we spend a small fortune on bottled water. We would love a Berkey!

    E Coli has been discovered several times in our town’s water – so I really need this!

  95. Stacey says:

    Would so appreciate to be able to have one of these! Thank you for the chance. My main reason for wanting one is the health & wellbeing of my little children. We have a PUR on our faucet but I know it is far from giving us “pure” water. We do not have the funds for something like this….what a blessing it would be!!

  96. Heather R. says:

    I’ve been wanting a Berkley water filter for a while now and its great to know that we can take it with us when we move in a few months.

  97. Samantha says:

    I’d love to win a Berkey to provide my family with clean water!

  98. Laura says:

    I would love to win a Berkey, so my family always has clean water to drink! The Southern Nevada Water Authority study is really frightening!

  99. Jennifer Burgi says:

    We just got our Berkey last week, and we can definitely taste a HUGE difference even from the filtered water we were getting out of our tap.

  100. Marissa says:

    Fingers and toes crossed…Would LOVE this!

  101. Ashley says:

    I want to give my family the healthiest water I can. Thanks for the giveaway!

  103. Ashley says:

    I have a 1 1/2 year old and am pregnant with my second. I am trying so hard to clean up our eating and lifestyle and I know a Berkey would be a wonderful edition, especially since we drink SO much water :) Thanks you!

  104. Sarah Jolin says:

    I’ve been drooling over these Berkey filters for ages… but they’re way out of my budget! fingers crossed!!!

  105. Evonne Burris says:

    i would LOVE to win one of these filters.. i just found out recently that our water district does not add flouride, but we have higher than average naturally occurring flouride in our water table.. with 3 kids with varrying lvls of autism, and the fact that when i lived on Okinawa as a child the air force gave kids flouride tablets since there was no flouride in the water, i would like to avoid it as much as possible now….

  106. Mandy Anderson says:

    I would love to win this to help clean up our water for my children with learning disabilities and autism.

  107. Christine Hubel says:

    We have been lugging water from the grocery store for years. I would love to use a Berkey instead!

  108. Leann says:

    I would so love this. We just recently moved to a small town and our water smells like chlorine! Kiddos think they are in a swimming pool at bath time-eek! Sent it off to get tested. Fingers crossed!

  109. crisss says:

    would love to stop having to buy water all the time

  110. Sarah MK says:

    This would be wonderful to be able to have purified water. Never quite sure what’s in the well water.

  111. Jennifer says:

    I would love to win a Berkey!!! One has been our wishlist for a loooong time! :)

  112. Jelaine Aprile says:

    Our ground water leaves a white residue on everything it touches! It is much too hard and needs to be filtered so I don’t become one!

  113. Marijo says:

    I have long had my eye on a Berkey water filter, but have been unable to purchase one. I would love to provide my children with the best.

  114. Rebecca says:

    I would love one of these to filter my horrible municipal water. I love that it’s moveable as my husband and I tend to move fairly frequently. And it would be so helpful to know that the chlorine, floride, and pharmaceutical leftovers are no longer in our water.

  115. Shawna says:

    I would love to win one of these. Only heard good things about them.

  116. Candra says:

    With a 4 year old and now a new baby on the way, I would love to upgrade from my current PUR water filter, which I know is sub-standard at best. The only thing worse than knowing your drinking toxic water is knowing your kids are too.

    Good luck everyone!!

  117. Gina says:

    I would love to win this!!

  118. Janette says:

    We’ve been contemplating what water system we need to get here at our house. Would love to be able to have one of these!

  119. Debora says:

    I only recently found out about this amazing contraption. Our water is awful in Houston. It literally smells like the refineries that surround the city. Half the time I expect it to be black.

  120. Lynn Wilkinson says:

    I would love to win this, our water is very hard, smells bad and I won’t let my toddler drink it! We have to buy bottled and that’s not good for the environment!

  121. Donna S says:

    I WOULD love this to take another step in protecting my family from toxins

  122. Lindsey B says:

    I have had my eye on these for awhile now. But there is just no was we can afford one, I would love to win!

  123. what an amazing giveaway!!! just about to order new filters for our countertop filter… but keeping my fingers crossed in the meantime! thank you!!!

  124. Maggie says:

    Just moved to the city and can’t stand the taste and feel of the water. Every time I touch it I am reminded of what’s in it (It feels slippery.) and how unhealthy it. The “Powers that Be” need to wake up and reexamine what exactly is truly for the common good. (It’s not chlorine and certainly not fluoride!!) Get this crap out of our water! I’d really like to win this distiller that removes all this gunk. Thank you for the opportunity!

  125. Megan says:

    I had not heard about a lot of these issues until coming across your blog last week. Thanks for keeping us informed! I’d love to add this water filter to my family’s home.

  126. I have been ogling these for YEARS!

  127. I’d love to win a Berkey! We live in a town where the water is fluorinated, so currently we are relying on bottled water to drink, which isn’t much better. We’re also in an apartment, so this would be perfect for us!

  128. Liliana Verd says:

    I would like to win a berkey water filter to eliminate fluoride. Thanks for this amazing giveaway and for all your blogposts.

  129. Gwen B. says:

    I never really thought about the pharmaceuticals in the water before. We drink more spring water than we used to now and recently the dentist scolded my children for not drinking more tap water for the flouride content. There’s so much conflicting info out there! Sigh. This would mean the world to my family and it’s not in our budget, so thanks for this. Really.

  130. Charity says:

    I would live to win because I have been saving up for one! We just have a little brita right now and I would like to filter out quite a bit more, but don’t have the money right now. Thanks!

  131. Ashley H says:

    We currently lug five 5-gallon glass jars to the grocery store to fill them up with RO water, and then pump our drinking and cooking water out of them for use. This would make life much easier :)

  132. candance says:

    My family drinks a lot of water and this would have amazing to have!

  133. Kim says:

    I would like a Berkley bc I am allergic to corn and need to filter my water. Unfortunately it is not something I can afford to buy.

  134. Sammy says:

    Because berkey is the best! :) im actually entering is a surprise for my friend Crystal.

  135. sarah says:

    I would love to win this because out city water is horrible and we don’t have the room in our budget to purchase!!

  136. Bethany says:

    Love anything healthy for my family! Thanks for the chance to win!

  137. Sarah M. says:

    I would gift the filter to my senior parents :)

  138. Stephanie says:

    Looking forward to feeling good about the water I drink and give to my family

  139. Stephanie Kelly says:

    I would love to win this water filter! It’s a constant debate and discussion about how healthy/clean our water is and it would be incredible to use this for our water!

  140. Carla says:

    We live in an area with horrible water – this filtering system would be awesome!

  141. Meredith Reichmann says:

    I was so disappointed when I found out that my Brita filter doesn’t actually filter out Chlorine (just the chlorine smell)! When I got it, I thought, I know that it won’t take out the Fluoride, but at least I can start with baby steps and get out the chlorine…then I actually read the packaging…it always helps to read the label. Only a Berkey can help me now :)

  142. Schanna says:

    My family has been working hard to change almost all aspects of the way we live so that we can be healthier. We’ve been doing it on a limited budget so every little bit helps! Thank you for doing this!

  143. Jen says:

    Would love a Berkey!

  144. Kylee says:

    My kids have SO many health issues right now. They are on strict diets but drink mostly water, I’m sure the filter on the fridge doesn’t clear out hardly anything… though I can taste a difference in tap water and fridge water, it makes me sick to think of all the crap we’re drinking, even in filtered water!

  145. I own a locally grown farmers market in Cumming, GA, have a garden in the back of my home and built a garden at my children’s school. I do every thing I can to teach clean eating to my family and everyone I meet. My husband supports me in every way but has said no to a filter because every filter I like costs so much. I really think having a water filter would make me and my family healthier. I can’t drink our tap water because all I think about are all the chemicals I’m drinking, then trying to remove, it’s a never ending cycle. I can’t make decent bone broth, soups, or fermented tea until I get a great filter like this one. Thank you for offering this.

  146. Katie Chancellor says:

    Awesome giveaway! I would love to have this for my family.

  147. Erin Kaplan says:

    I live in NYC – tasty water and even among the cleanest in the world. But I hate that there’s fluoride in the water. It’s something that I’d really like my family and I to avoid. This filter has been on my wishlist for awhile.

  148. Rachel says:

    Great giveaway! I would love a Berkey for my family!!

  149. Jessica says:

    I would love to win the Berkey! Nothing can survive without water. America is running out of good clean drinkable water and it has become unsafe to drink tap water and bottled water who knows what they put in that. We always talk about the fact that food is grown with pesticides and is grown with so many chemicals then processed etc. but think about the water that helps grow our food..(whoa that’s a whole different topic sorry) in short, everything seeps into the ground goes into the aquifers that are used for everything especially drinking and it is very expensive to buy a good water filter system that really works, so thank you for the chance to win and good luck to the winner!

  150. stacy says:

    I would love this so my kids are drinking the best water possible!

  151. Andrea says:

    I drink lots of water but would love to drink the BEST water. :)

  152. robyn says:

    I’ve wanted one of these for years. Thanks for the chance to win!

  153. Jennifer Makhloufi says:

    Exciting! We’ve been wanting one of these for a long time! Especially now that we are going on rural water.

  154. Harlee says:

    We’re going to start looking into buying a house- it’d be awesome to have a nice water filter in our new house!!

  155. This is a perfect giveaway! Thanks for the chance to clean up our water :)

  156. Amy W. says:

    I would love to win a Berkey! My city is rated one of the worst 100 cities in the US for water quality plus our water is fluoridated so this Berkey is much needed for my family. Thanks!

  157. Amy says:

    I have been wanting this for so long!

  158. Brooke Carlock says:

    Eeeeee! What a great giveaway! Thanks so much!

  159. My neighbor has one of these and it’s amazing and wonderful! We have (so far) 3 children who are constantly drinking water. I hate the Brita filter, especially knowing that it really doesn’t do much anyway. How exciting that they are doing this giveaway! Good luck everyone!

    • Carmen Stramara says:

      Currently, the water at my house turns my hair green…I’d LOVE to have this Berkey so I can feel confident in what my family is drinking!

  160. Maggie says:

    Oooh, I’ve had my eye on a Berkey! Now I’m just trying to get my husband on board. We’re both concerned about the fluoride in our water.

  161. Michelle Parker says:

    My children do not care to drink water because they don’t like how it tastes. I’m sure that this giveaway would give my children the opportunity to drink good, clean, delicious water!

  162. Sabriba Slonim says:

    I hope to win this giveaway because my husband thinks that fluoride is good for people and refuses th allow me to buy any water filtering sysyem to protect my kids.

  163. We are very contentious about our water supply and have used many different filters in the past, mostly Britta and Zero Water. I have been saving up for a Big Berkey for months and just never seem to get to the total price before needing to spend the money on something else (like tires or a new battery, or school books). We are on well water and feel safer being able to filter it before consumption!

  164. Reese says:

    Since losing my 8-year-old to cancer last year, I am trying to overhaul our eating habits, as well as removing chemicals and toxins from our home. I just can’t sit back and hope that the SAD and typical American lifestyle is going to let us get by without causing harm. I hope to see several chronic family conditions disappear: GERD, allergies and acne; not to mention, doing what I can to guard against devastating and debilitating conditions like cancer. Thanks for offering this giveaway. A Berkey is high on my wish list!

  165. Sara says:

    Clean water is a privilege.

  166. Adelaide says:

    Would love to have one for our condo!

  167. Gina K says:

    I have wanted a Berkey for a very long time! Good luck, everyone.

  168. Jessica says:

    I know our fridge filter and Brita don’t filter nearly enough, so I have been doing some research and the Berkey seems to be the way to go. My problem is that I live in CA, so I can’t get it shipped to me. Would love the Royal Berkey for my family so I could have peace of mind we aren’t ingesting a ton of toxins every time we drink or cook with the water. Awesome giveaway!

  169. Dyanne Spease says:

    For a body to be healthy and thrive it must have a clean source of food and water. All the meds in the water system are so scary. What a mess we have left for our children.

  170. Shanna Garcia says:

    My kids and I drink a lot of water. We live in a very small town and the neighboring municipalities have major drug problem. Thinking about what may be in our water scares me. Bottled water can get expensive- so I would love to win a Berkey!

  171. Danielle Perrotta says:

    I’m in Raleigh, NC and would truly benefit from having this filtration device. Its scary to think of our water as polluted and contaminated yet essential to our very being.

  172. Kelly Bee says:

    I would love this filter for my family!

  173. AP says:

    Currently using the ZeroWater 5 stage filter, but it still doesn’t remove everything I would like.

  174. Michelle says:

    Would love to win a Berkey! Really want to be drinking better quality water!!

  175. Melissa says:

    I would love to have a Berkey to get rid of the fluoride!

  176. Pam says:

    I would love this filter because we drink our water from plastic bottles, which I know is not the best idea. I have been wanting a water filter for a while now, but had no idea which one to get.

  177. Olivia says:

    I’ve never won anything and a Berkey is on my “next big purchase” list. This win would be such a treat! Especially with baby #2 on the way! Our growing family would greatly benefit from such a great product!

  178. Desiree says:

    We just moved to a place that is right by a farm. Farmer uses GMO seeds and pesticides and we would to be able to filter out the crap.

  179. Laurie says:

    I want my baby to grow up drinking pure, fluoride free water!

  180. Abby says:

    I would love to win this for my family! Great giveaway! Thank you Mommypotamus for all that you do for us!

  181. Sydra says:

    Tap water scares me bad. I do not want to drink chlorine or fluoride anymore! I am so excited for the opportunity to win.

  182. Jenn D says:

    I have been wanting to get a Berkey for some time. It would be so great to win one! It would be awesome to stop having to choose between bottled water or poorly filtered tap water.

  183. Amy says:

    I so want a berkey! This is the best giveaway! It produces clean water and what’s more important than that?! Thanks!

  184. Monique says:

    We would love the Berkey!

  185. Carissa says:

    I have a Berkey Filter & love it. I’d love to win it because I know of several families who would love it & I’d love to gift one to them. :)

  186. Valerie says:

    We have fluoridated water and high levels of lithium and low (but dangerous) levels of other undesirables in it as well. I’ve been asking for a water purification system for over a year now, and my husband thinks our budget has other priorities. I’ve considered making a DIY backyard version for the warm weather months as a partial solution, but this would be so much better.

  187. Tawan says:

    I have a toddler. I think that’s about as good a reason as any. Also, I think our current filter is not the best one compared to what out there.

  188. Jillian says:

    Considering our household drinks water and tea and that is all a great water filter that would make our water healthy and livable would be wonderful.

  189. Michelle H says:

    Would love to have this the water in our town is terrible and can really use this.

  190. Christy R says:

    Great giveaway! I’ve wanted one of these for a very long time.

  191. Emily Larsen says:

    I am going to be living in southern Nevada this summer, yikes! I’ve been eyeing these for a while. I think this article may have finally convinced my husband that we need one. I would love to have a Berkey!! Thank you for all of your research and hard work!

  192. Leann L says:

    I want to win this for my parents so that they can have fresh clean drinking water.

  193. Kaia says:

    You’re doing really good work with the information you publish/write, the number of people you reach & by hosting cool giveaways like this. Thank you!

    I rarely enter contests or install Facebook apps, but would love to win this filter. We have a four mo th old kiddo & try our best to be healthy, and would use the heck out of something like this!

  194. Kara says:

    I’ve been dying for a Berkey!

  195. Teri says:

    What a fantastic giveaway! Just recently our water started smelling like chlorine and this filter sure would be nice.

  196. Julie says:

    I’ve been researching Berkey filters for a while and would love to win one! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  197. Symatha says:

    I would love to win the Berkey water filter. We are now drinking well water and it has a very “off” taste to it. No other filter is making it any better.

  198. angela says:

    I really have been wanting to buy a berkey. I have read so much good about how clean they can get the water one would consume. I hope I can win so my family and I can have optimal health. BTW, also love your blog it has helped me alot in my journey…

  199. Heather says:

    I want a Berkey.

  200. Jennifer Coe says:

    Slowly, but surely, we are trying to make better choices in our lives. For ourselves and for our 2 boys. We are working from a list of ‘inexpensive’ or ‘free’ items, but this water filter would check off one of the things we cannot afford! Thanks for offering this opportunity.

  201. Steena Brown says:

    Oh! Berkey!
    I currently have a Brita and wonder if it does anything other than remove the chlorine taste from our city water. I have eyed a Berkey before but it hasn’t been tangible yet within our budget. I know the Berkey does a superior job removing all the YUCK from water. What a great giveaway!

  202. Ann Gastoukian says:

    I have heard great things about The Berkey! Need to get rid of the yucky water and replace it with healthy water! Thanks for having this giveaway!

  203. Shanda says:

    I would love to win this. We have been searching for the best water filtration system.

  204. Kelley says:

    I would love to win a Berkey! Our water is so bad where we live.

  205. Kelly says:

    I would love to wi this for my family! There is no way I could afford to buy one.

  206. lori says:

    i have never left a comment but this certainly warrants one! it is a wonderful thing you are doing…what a fortunate winner. even not winning, we are all a ‘winner’ with your blog!!

  207. Melissa says:

    Our family has been saving for a water filter system over serious concerns of the water quality in our city winning one would make our year as the saving seems so far off! I absolutely love your blog mommypotamus :)

  208. Katie says:

    I have been wanting one of these for a long time!

  209. Beth says:

    So excited to see this!!! Would love to have it, we live in a house with old pipes on city water. Also wonderful to have in case of emergencies!

  210. Kristen Perez says:

    My husband, my son and I just moved into a new home where they might use lead pipes. So I definitely would love to win a Berkey water filter! I have been wanting one ever since my sister got one!

  211. Alisha says:

    I have been wanting one of these for a while! Thanks for all the details & info…sent a link to my hubby as evidence of why he should not only enter the contest but be supportive of spending the $ for one, if we don’t win. Thanks Heather!!!

  212. Meredith says:

    I would love to win this because I currently have a PUR filter and I know that they are not very good. I also want to filter out fluoride!

  213. Coley says:

    I’ve been looking for a great water filter, would love to have one! :)

  214. Veronica V says:

    We buy filtered water, but it would give me so much peace of mind to know our water was free of plastic toxins as well as the rest! We have been on a 3 year journey toward wellness, removing gluten, dairy, HFCS, non-organic produce, GMO’s, and most grains from our family’s diet. This water filter is really a great next step in our healing journey!

  215. Stephanie Bury says:

    My husband and I just bought our 1st house to raise our son (who is 15 months now) in. This would be a great addition to our new home.

  216. Erin Kidwell says:

    Wow this would be amazing to win! We have a Britain and I’ve wanted something safer for a while

  217. Allison says:

    I am moving to Egypt. The water there is, needless to say, not that great. I would LOVE a Berkey so we can avoid having to buy bottled water all the time.

  218. Aimee says:

    I’ve wanted one of these filters for a while but can not afford one. It would be awesome to win one. Thanks and Smiles

  219. Paula says:

    I already have small Berkey and I love it! I really need a larger one and I’ve been saving up for it. The small one is great for travel, but it doesn’t keep up with my family of four. Thank you so much for this giveaway! And I love your blog! Keep it up! :)

  220. Kathleen says:

    I have always wanted one of these, but finding the money for it never seems to happen. I just had a newborn and hate thinking of what could be transferring to her from my milk. Heard the best things about this filter in particular. fingers and toes crossed. :)

  221. Rachel Kirsch says:

    I have been wanting one of these filters for about a year now, but can’t afford it at this point. I would love to win one! Thanks for doing the giveaway! :-)

  222. Liz says:


  223. susan hayworth says:

    Great giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity!

  224. Brandi Everetts says:

    I would totally love one of these!! what goes into my families bodies is very important to me and we drink a lot of water! after reading this blog i’m super concerned that the water jugs i buy are not up to par!

  225. I have been dying to buy one of these!! I’m having all kinds of hormonal imbalances, and it’s thought to be related to some of the contaminents in our drinking water ;(

  226. Misti says:

    With 8 kids, we could really use this heavy duty filter..we drink a lot of water!

  227. Becki Woodcock says:

    Would love a Berkey. I have a 5 year old (today) autistic son that has been on GAPS for about a year and a half now. I have been reading about water filters but at this time it’s not financially possible for us to buy one. This would be an amazing opportunity for my family & especially my son. Thank you mommypotamus, I follow you on Facebook & have found & used a good amount of recipes that you have shared. Best of luck to all.

  228. Janine says:

    We have heard great things about this filter system! We have tried other systems with not a lot of difference to our health. Can’t wait to use this one, instead!

  229. Rebecca says:

    Would love a better filter. Especially since we moved the water here is horrible.

  230. Jessica T says:

    I’d love a Berkey so I don’t have to buy plastic jugs of water for our family anymore!

  231. MaryB says:

    I would love to win a Berkey! We really don’t have the extra money to purchase one, but it is on our wish list!

  232. Taina says:

    Oh I would so love to win this for my family :)

  233. Judy says:

    Live in the country. We have a well. The water table is full of contaminants from oil and gas drilling. Occasionally the water turns purple…
    That’s why I would love this filter…

  234. Heidi says:

    Would love to win a Berkey in that it’s definitely not in our budget to buy right now!

  235. Amanda says:

    Would love to win this!

  236. Jennifer says:

    I would absolutely live to win this. With a young family and battling MS at the same time, something’s got to change. Meds can only do so much, if anything at all. I need to work on what I am taking in as well.

  237. Holly says:

    I’ve wanted a Berkey for a long time, but not in our budget right now. It would be great to win! Thanks for the opportunity!

  238. Danielle Maxwell says:

    I am 19 weeks pregnant and have been looking to buy a fluoride filter for some time. This would be perfect!!

  239. Stefanie says:

    The Berkley is the best.

  240. Julie Z says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  241. Janine says:

    We would love a Berkey for our new little family!!!

  242. Katherine says:

    We already have (and LOVE!) our Berkey, but my sis needs one!

  243. Fajr says:

    I would love to win this machine. It would save me time and money from having to get water from the store. We drink a lot of water so it would be a big help

  244. Ginny says:

    I would love to have a Berkey water filter because we live in a town that adds fluoride to the water. After everything I’ve been learning about fluoride, I know that we need to reduce our intake immediately!

  245. Donna C says:

    I want to win so we can avoid flouride, and have a way to purify water in an emergency. I have wanted one for almost 2 years now, but it has never been possible. It is especially not possible now that I lost my job. Plus, yesterday was my birthday! lol Thank you so much for all you do to help us all live healthier lives.

  246. MarieP says:

    I’ve read wonderful things about Berkey and have looked into buying one for a while now. Looking forward to the day when I can say goodbye to lugging all those store-bought water gallons up to my apartment Thanks for the opportunity!

  247. SVITLANA says:

    This is such a great product and I’ve been wanted this for a long time but couldn’t afford and having toddler would be perfect.

  248. Shannon says:

    Id like to win to have fluoride free water!

  249. Rachael Grossman says:

    We have 6 kids and good water is very important
    For their growing bodies!

  250. Jamie V says:

    I would love to have a Berkey because I have 3 young children and I don’t want their bodies having to fight all the chemicals found in our water. What a great giveaway!

  251. Jodi S says:

    I would love to win this! Been eyeing them for a few months now. I do not like drinking “filtered” water from my fridge, and I refuse to drink tap water. I would also like this to have on hand in case there is a natural disaster or something that affects drinking water! It would benefit my whole family with our allergies/asthma and overall health! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  252. Leah says:

    I recently read as well that minute concentrations of certain chemicals can cause effects that aren’t seen at greater concentrations. It’s not that the greater concentrations aren’t harmful – rather, when the body is hit with more of the chemical, it just shuts down. This could be a reason why we hear of all those studies where “effects were not seen at concentrations 100x the legal limit”. This was a fascinating study!

  253. Holly says:

    Been looking at these for months!!! :D Would love to win – making health changes for our family and even though we live in a fairly ‘good’ water area I’d love to make it better!!!

  254. debbie says:

    I’ve never seen this before.
    Sounds wonderful. I’d love it!

  255. Shannon says:

    This would be such a fantastic score for our family! Thanks for considering us for this awesome giveaway!

  256. Kris Z. says:

    We’ve wanted one for our family of 11 – just can’t afford it. Thanks for the chance to win!

  257. Charlie says:

    The water is really bad where we live, this would save us alot of money

  258. Alexis D says:

    We already have a Berkey and absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it but my in-laws need a Berkey so I’m gonna try to win one for them :)

  259. Carissa says:

    Good choice for a giveaway!! I REALLY, REALLY want to win this!!! : )

  260. Tiffany says:

    I have wanted one of these for ever, just not in the budget. Would be so excited to win!

  261. Miranda says:

    I would love to win this! We are renters and I love that its portable.

  262. Taylor says:

    I love Berkey! Well, I’ve never used one, but I WANT ONE! I’ve been looking into them for a long time now, but the cost is prohibitive for us (it shouldn’t be, but hubby isn’t as gung-ho with all this stuff as I am.) Now, to read the “Chlorine and CANCER” post… perhaps not for the first time…

  263. Tristine evans says:

    I’ve been searching for a better filter system for my family. Very excited to have an opportunity to win such an important thing!! I’ve been looking at this one for a while now, but its not in our budget iChat now :( hope we win!!

  264. Christina B. says:

    My current filter doesn’t remove fluoride and I really want that stuff it of my water. Thanks!

  265. Melisa says:

    I’ve been wanting one of these!

  266. stefanie dingledine says:

    We’ve been trying nearly a year to conceive and can’t help but wonder if the pollution in our water could be contributing. We have a Brita pitcher, but this would be so much better!

  267. Barbara Brown says:

    My DIL has one and loves it. Sounds like a good thing to have!

  268. Emily says:

    My husband and I are TTC and I love all the great information on your blog!

  269. Jennifer Duckett says:

    Wow! looks like there is some competition here. Its so exciting to see how many people want to better their health.

  270. Julie Leierzapf says:

    Incredible giveaway- thank you for the chance to win a great prize!

  271. AnnMarie Deis says:

    I have been scouting a Berkey water filter system for a year now, but I never seem to be able to take the plunge and purchase one. With holistic medicine and the whole eating that we do, along with the extras in life, we have managed to survive with lugging jugs back and forth to the health food store. I would LOVE to win a Berkey filter!!!!!!!! What a knockout giveaway!!!!!

  272. Danielle Kyle says:

    I would be thrilled to receive a Berkey Water filter. We have five children and have not been able to successfully budget for one yet. It is the single most important step I can take for my family’s health and general wellness!!!
    I am praying like a mad women!!!!!!!!!!!

  273. Jack says:

    I hope to win because I don’t want to drink other peoples pharmaceuticals (I don’t even really like to take aspirin :o And, I don’t think I need to ingest fluoride -it’s a carcinogen, right?

    Thanks for the fun (and healthy) give-a-way!

  274. Tracy S says:

    This would be great!

  275. Pamela says:

    This is on my “need” list for our tax return! Brita just isn’t cutting it!

  276. Lara says:

    Ready to really purify my water!

  277. I would love to try the Royal Berkey! I have a Mavea at home which I thought was a bit more advanced than Brita, but from what I can tell, it’s the same company! Would love to stop drinking fluoride!

  278. Jennifer gallagher says:

    I would LoooooooovE a Berkey water filtration system!

  279. B Hdz says:

    My family just started learning about the “real food” lifestyle about 6 months ago and have learned SO much and made so many changes already. I learned about this lifestyle (and about your blog) from my sister. She and her family will be moving to a very poor region of Romania as missionaries later this year. As much as I would love to have this for myself and my family, I would love to be able to give this as a gift to them so they will have safe drinking water when they move. Thanks for all you do to enlighten and educate us for better health.

  280. Tracey Moore, CPM says:

    Really liking the things I see here, great giveaway! Friends have used berkeys for years.. great product.

  281. Rachael says:

    I’ve been seriously considering getting one of these. :)

  282. Brandi says:

    I have wanted this filter for the longest time but we haven’t been able to afford it. Knowing how poor the water quality is, even here where everyone takes clean drinking water for granted, really has convinced me that we need a better filter than the Britta.

  283. tamar says:

    After moving to Las Vegas I had a rash under my skin from the water. I purchased an Zero water filter. When I tested my water it was at almost 500ppm when average in the US is around 250 ppm. The Zero filter helped but it only lasts about a weekand a half before you need to change it. I have been dreaming of a burkey for awhile now. I just have not had the upfront funds.

  285. Rebekah Randolph says:

    We are about to move into a house with city water… gross. Enough said :)

  286. Ashley says:

    We’ve made a ton of changes over the past several years for the health of our family… This change is next on our list! We currently have a PUR faucet filter… But I’ve been eyeing the Berkey’s for a while!

  287. Kristen Mandujano says:

    I want to win this so stinkin bad! I have wanted one for awhile now but just can’t swing it in the budget yet!

  288. Sarah says:

    What a fantastic giveaway! I live the ability to purchase flouride filters in addition to everything else it already does.

  289. Jessica Moon says:

    I would love to win a berkey water filter because it would greatly help improve my family’s health! I have a 5 and a 4yr old, and my 5yr old has some sensory processing issues. The cleaner life that we as a family live (no gluten, no milk, no food dyes, no preservatives, etc) the better her learning and behavior is! I have been wanting to eliminate flouride from our drinking water for quite some time now, and I haven’t had the means to do so since I’m a single mom that barely makes ends meet. We don’t use conventional toothpaste, but it would be wonderful to take the extra step in removing it from our drinking water! Thank you for all of your wonderful information! You are such a blessing! :)

  290. Amber says:

    yaaa! berkey water filters!

  291. Rachel says:

    We have been trying to save for a Berkley for a long time, this would be such a blessing!

  292. Molly says:

    My county just started fluorinating, this is right on time!

  293. Lauren says:

    Ohh I have been wanting a Berkey filter for a long time but can’t afford it! Would LOVE to win this!

  294. amanda says:

    Thanks again for bringing so much useful information. I only happened upon this blog a few months ago, but it has quickly become my all time favorite!

  295. Michelle says:

    Thank you for the chance to win!! :)

  296. We have a well so there are many things I don’t have to worry about, BUT, my water is rusty and a bit stinky. I could SO use a water filter!

  297. Marbara says:

    I would love to have one of these; I never heard of this brand before…probably better than the Brita pitcher I’m using now :)

  298. Sarah says:

    Our town water has fluoride in it. We rent our house, and it’s not in our budget to get a water filter that will remove everything including the fluoride. Now that we have a baby, I’m even more frustrated because I’m trying my best to keep her chemical load as low as possible. This would help out our family a lot!

  299. martine says:

    to have finally a pure water

  300. Teresa says:

    These water filters are amazing and it’d be great peace of mind giving my family clean, pure water everyday.

  301. JENETTE says:


  302. Katherine S. says:

    In my continuing effort to be truly conscious of what I put into my body and what I allow to put into my children’s bodies, I really need to tackle the water filtration issue. I am a huge advocate of consumer choice and of informed decision making, but when it comes to city water, we don’t have a choice, not are we told what is really in our water. And bottled water isn’t better!

  303. Rebecca Marlowe says:

    I want one of these so bad!!!

  304. Mary says:

    i would love to win this , i had no idea how much my Brita left behind.

  305. Kelse Truitt says:

    What a great giveaway! I am loving your blog! :)

  306. Chelsea says:

    We spend an obscene amount of money on refillable water jugs every month. It would be amazing to have that money for other things. My daughter has a dairy sensitivity. We would like to get to an alternative doctor in our area.

  307. Abbey says:

    I want to give my family the best possible! I’ve been wanting a Berkey for a while now, but it’s not quite feasible while we’re paying off debt and making other (Slightly more expensive) changes to our diet. This would be a huge blessing!

  308. Brandy says:

    We live in an apt. so the berkey would be easy to take with us when we move. I have been wanting this to filter out fluoride for years!

  309. Emily says:

    Just finished graduate school and all my income is going to student loan repayment :-(…doesn’t leave much room for the rest of my desires to be healthy ;-)

  310. Jenni says:

    I love the fact that this filter leaves minerals in the water that our body needs!

  311. Steph Alexander says:

    Would LOVE one of these. We currently haul about 5 gallons of water home from the store for drinking, broth, kombucha etc. Having a Berkey would save me! Great giveaway!

  312. Lisa says:

    This is the biggest item on my wish list!!!

  313. Jen says:

    So scary to think of what’s in the water we drink everyday.

  314. Gret says:

    It makes me so nervous me, my husband, and 7-month old are drinking city water and we have NO idea what is in it! I don’t think our little Brita does the job.

  315. Meaghan says:

    Ohh I would just love to win!! I’ve been wanting this for awhile, but it’s so pricey! I think the odds are against me, but they’re worse if I don’t enter at all! Pick me!

  316. Have been wanting to buy one of these. PS – great website!!

  317. Jessica says:

    Oh this sounds wonderful! We go through water at our house!

  318. Tiffany says:

    What a great giveaway! We have wanted to purchase one of these for a while but due to cost we haven’t. We do use a filter on our faucet but this would be amazing! Thank you for offering this giveaway.

  319. marta says:

    THIS has been on my wishlist FOREVER!!! Thanks for making this into a giveaway!!

  320. Juliana says:

    Clean water for my family has been on my mind a lot lately. Especially as I keep getting notifications, after the fact, that our local water supply exceeded safe limits for many chemicals. I’ve gotten a brita, but it’s not nearly enough.

  321. Caroline says:

    What a perfectly beautiful solution to our clean drinking water woes!

  322. Jamie Underhill says:

    Really want this and the only way my husband would ever let me have one,is if I WON one.

  323. Kiya Tabb says:

    Can’t wait to get the nasty stuff out of our water!

  324. Darcie says:

    I would love to have a Berkey! I think I may be having allergic reactions to the additives in my water. Having a Berkey here would make me feel so much better about the water I drink.

  325. Vanessa says:

    I really enjoy your blog. Thank you for working out all the research that I would like to be doing.
    I find myself using your website first as my own personal Google to look up recipes and health.
    And, yes, I would LOVE to win that Berkey! :-) I have one on my wishlist.

  326. Angelle says:

    Would love to have clean water for my family to drink and the portability of this unit would be great for this military family!

  327. Myra Horst says:

    I only have a Brita filter and I know it’s not doing what I wish it was! I would love to win this water filter. Thanks for the opportunity!

  328. Daniela says:

    You have no idea how much I want this, but can’t afford it. I literally screamed when I received this post in my e-mail! I couldn’t believe it! Thank you for this opportunity!

  329. lauren cheney says:

    I have been wanting a Berkey filter for FOREVER! What a great give-away. Thank for the chance!

  330. Frances says:

    I was trying to find the water filter for our family. I am sold…

  331. Christi says:

    Love to win this for me and my family!

  332. mari says:

    My daughter has sensitive skin and eczema problems. I think it’d be really beneficial for her.

  333. Katie L says:

    Would love one! We just have a Brita and Pur right now. We have a small apartment so I’m wondering how much space it would take up. Guess we’ll just have to make room!

  334. Sandra Lee says:

    why wouldn’t i want a berkey?! Who the hell wants flouride in their water. Plus, it can be used to filter water if there’s a major disaster, right?

  335. Jennifer says:

    Love the blog. Thanks for the opportunity to win…could never afford one on my own, unfortunately.

  336. Bianca says:

    What perfect timing…I just started researching water filters!

  337. Tehi says:

    I have wanted a quality water filter for my family for so long, but haven’t been able to afford it. This would make it possible for us to finally drink clean, healthy water.

  338. Alice Clarke says:

    It’s got a great name and it does an amazing job. What’s not to love?

  339. Wendy says:

    I have been looking for a new water filtering system for a while now. Would love to win this!!!!

  340. Brook says:

    We are moving into a 110 year old house next month and I’m very worried about the water quality and old pipes. This would be so great to have!

  341. Britny says:

    Thank you for the chance to win this awesome water filter! I’ve wanted a Berkey for quite some time now, but just haven’t been able to fit it in our budget yet.

  342. Lydia says:

    It’s my birthday this Wednesday!!! What better gift than clean, tasty water for years to come!

  343. Joy says:

    What an awesome opportunity! I’ve been wanting to get a Berkey filter for
    a long time! I didn’t realize just how many things it will filter out. Thanks
    for the contest!!

  344. Whittney says:

    This has been one of my favorite purchases in the last year – we love it! And so does everyone who visits, so I hope to win this one to gift to a family member. :)

  345. Karina says:

    Yes please!

  346. Meg says:

    Hopefully we will be expecting another little one before the year is over, would love a great water filter like the Berkey to keep our water pure and healthy!

  347. Danika says:

    Oh my goodness! Perfect timing. Our city (Portland, Oregon) is considering adding flouride to the water. As much as I hope the decision is overturned, I want to be prepared in the event that it is not.

  348. Melanie says:

    This would be awesome! We use a Brita filter, but I know it’s not the strongest filter. And sometimes the water coming from our faucets smells like chlorine! (yuck!). Despite its trying, the Brita can’t get rid of THAT.

  349. AlexKay says:

    This has been on my wish list for soooo long!

  350. Amy S says:

    This is such a great giveaway. We recently moved and are on “city” water after 12 years on the most amazing well. I miss my clean water! Thank you.

  351. whitney says:

    Would love one of these!!

  352. Katie Hutchins says:

    I would LOVE to win the Berkey water filter. I was just diagnosed with a mass on one side of my thyroid. I’m a mom of two, my youngest is 6 months. I’ve decided to treat myself holistically and treating my water is a must. I’ve used your website to transform my diet along with my families and our entire lifestyle. Thank you. As we are spending most our income on fresh food; this filter would be a blessing! Excited to know about this now too.

  353. theresa says:

    my niece was born with a birth defect that may have been caused by toxins in her mom’s drinking water supply..having recently had my first baby, i’d love an effective water filter. thank you for the giveaway!

  354. Marilyn Burns says:

    I would love to win the Berkey because we don’t have the best tasting water here in Tyler.

  355. Andrea Hewitt says:

    I’d love to win, especially for my kids. We have a public water source, who knows what’s in it.

  356. Jennifer says:

    We have had this on our list of needed items for over a year now and would love to finally have one. We have to buy water in the summer because our water gets so bad.

  357. Wendi says:

    I’ve been wanting a Berkey for 5 years, since I first heard of them! I’d love to win this for my family.

  361. Kim N. says:

    Would LOVE to win! I have been researching water filter systems and it is sooo confusing!

  362. Lesley says:

    Preggo with #2, could used a great filter! I’ve been pining for one of these for over a year.

  363. Maria says:

    My husband and I have always wanted a Berkey, doesn’t get much better and the water actually tastes so much better. I really hope we win this, we have a little one on the way and would love to have good water.

  364. Kristin says:

    After reading your article about all the horrible toxins in water, I know we really need a Berkey water filter.

  365. Peggy says:

    Bring on the Berkey! I am only using a Brita now, & would feel like “I had arrived” as a Real Food girl if I had a Berkey! :)

  366. Rachel says:

    This would be an awesome addition for our family, then I can stop buying water :)

  367. Nancy says:

    We don’t have filter at all, as the ones I have looked at are well beyond our budget. Oh my, I would love to have one of these.

  368. jenny says:

    Just moved and would love to get one for the city water we will have at the house.

  369. sarah says:

    I’ve been doing research on which water filtering system to buy. I’ve decided that the Berkey is the best one out there. I would love to win it!

  370. Gail says:

    I want to win so I can use this awesome water filter to give my family great water! :-)

    Great contest! Love Berkey, but expensive! Then again you can’t put a price on health!

  372. Karibeth S. says:

    I would like to win to provide safe water for my kiddos! I have three. One son has multiple food allergies and is chemically sensitive. Have had to chelate twice in the past. We have a water filter, but not as good as this :(

  373. JulieB says:

    I want one of these to protect my family especially my 5 children! They are just so stinkin expensive I cannot afford it! Thank you for this giveaway!

  374. amanda says:

    I’ve been dying to try a Berkey. I know there are horrible things in our water, but I can’t convince the husband it is worth it to filter our water.

  375. Julie says:

    I would love a Berkey to assure that we are drinking safe water. Since we only drink milk and water, it’s important to make sure it’s safe!

  376. pam says:

    I have wanted one of these filters for a long time. Our water quality is incredibly poor.

  377. ashley says:

    This filter would be wicked awesome to have! I have allergies and can only drink certain bottled waters. With this I would save so much money because wouldn’t have to buy all that bottled water!

  378. Patti says:

    Thank you! I need this!

  379. claudia says:

    Healthy, clean water should be a priority! But we have so many other expenses for our special needs child that come first. WInning one would be absolutely amazing.


    This would be a God send!

  381. DeaLynn says:

    I love my Berkey, and I want my daughter and her family to have one too :)

  382. Jacqualine says:

    I would love, love, love to have this…It’s on my want/need list!

  386. Claudette Hoyt says:

    Thank you for the giveaway! Isn’t it fun to try and win something, especially something so important to our health and the health of our families. Bring on the Berkey :)

  387. Rachel says:

    We live out in the country and recently found out that the coop water we use has arsenic in it. This news is very unsettling especially with two little ones under the age of two. I know the Berkey is the best of the best and if I win this filter I will purchase the arsenic filters to accompany it! My mind would rest so much easier!

  388. Amy says:

    We are making great strides to rid our home of toxins and chemicals. This water filter is NEEDED here. Would seriously LOVE to win.

  389. Cynthia says:

    It’s been on my “need” list for ages! Winning one means something else can move to the top of the list!

  390. Lizzy Ford says:

    I’ve been eyeing the Berkey system for a few years now. Would be wonderful to win one though!

  391. Rebecca says:

    I would love to win a Berkey because I have 5 kids and they deserve the best!

  392. Tracy says:

    This has been on my wish list for several years! Just waiting for the money and a sale at the same time and just doesn’t seem to happen! Would be so awesome to win one…I’m very concerned with the quality of our water, especially with the many gas wells and fracking in the area. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win one!!

  393. Nicole says:

    I have really wanted to get one for a long time, but completely out of my price range. So many other things that I am getting and checking off of my wish list. Slowly. I am a stay at home mom so the budget is tight. To make filtered water in my own home would be great. To do it anywhere even better. No chlorine, no fluoride, no chemicals. Kind of like solar power it’s on the wish list but we are dealing with what we can afford. =)

  394. Nicole Eplee says:

    I Really want one as we are starting my daughter on solids and our current water filter doesn’t filter out the fluoride …meaning we are drinking it in our bone broth! We don’t have the money to buy one right now, so I really hope we can win it! We love love love your blog! Please please please pick us!

  395. Kirstian says:

    I have wanted one of these for a long time. Good luck everyone!

  396. becca says:

    water filtration is my current concern. i have been working at switching my home over to healthy living and the information about water usage is overwhelming at times. having something that works and works well, is my next step.

  397. Erin says:

    This has been in my sights but out of my price range for a long time! Hope it’s my lucky month. :)

  398. Jill says:

    I want to know the water i’m drinking is safe!

  399. Angie W says:

    I’ve been wanting a Berkey for several years. Someday…

  400. katrina says:

    I have been using Brita faucet filter, but don’t know if it really filters all the important stuff. I would be so thrilled to have one of these!

  401. Angela says:

    I’ve been wanting one of these for quite a while! We are seeking healthy choices, as budget allows.

  402. Rachel says:

    Wow, this would be awesome! I have just been refilling gallon jugs with purified water at the local co-op. This would make things so much easier – I’d be able to use clean water for all my cooking! Thank you for the opportunity and for all your dedication with your blog :)

  403. Kristin Louise Northup says:

    I’ve been wanting a Berkey – I’m so over buying plastic jugs of store water, and I hear Berkey is the best.

  404. Brittany says:

    We leave for Romania in October and I’ve told my husband that I MUST take one of these with me! I wish we had one already, but it’s harder to convince him we need it now. Thankfully, the need in Romania seems stronger for him! I’d love to win this!!!

  405. Tara says:

    My baby is just starting bone broth (first food), which of course is made with water, and as he starts to drink water, I want to make sure I’m giving him purified water, including fluoride-free. And as someone recovering from health issues, I want to avoid the extra toxic burden of all the yuckies in the water.

  406. Jennifer says:

    I would LOVE to win this Berkey filter!!!

  407. Jill says:

    Ahhhh! Clean water! Sign me up:)

    I would love one of these. It’s on my wish list.

  410. Sandy says:

    We’ve been wanting to purchase one of these but it just isn’t in the budget right now. Best water out there!

  411. Lisa says:

    I have been wanting one of these Berkeley filters for a LONG time. Unfortunately we’re not able to purchase one at this time. My husband, my 2 kids (2 and 4), and I could all benefit from drinking from this instead of from our community well water.

  412. Jenna Bezdek says:

    I would love for my family to have clean drinking water.

  413. I would love to have such a good quality water filter for my family!

  414. Katelynd Blake says:

    Thank you for sharing this information. I have been very concerned about water lately and I am excited about this giveaway. Thanks!

  415. I have 4 kids and I want to provide them with the healthiest options available. I sure can’t afford a Berkey water filter, so I hope I win this one! Our water is hard and tastes bad.

  416. Debbie says:

    I hear of this filter all the time and would love to have my own!

  417. Diana Dimova says:

    I have read about the water clarifying capabilities of the Berkey Filters and have thought of investing in one of these for quite some time now. I hope I win the Berkey.
    Thank you for doing this giveaway!

    I would love to find a great way to have clean and safe water for my girls to enjoy. We drink gallons a day, so we need this :)

  423. Bethany says:

    We buy water at the store and it’s SUCH A PAIN to get gallons of water every time we run out, often forgetting to get them in time. We have been wanting a Berky filter for a while but just haven’t been able to spend the money on it yet… we would LOVE to have one, cleaner and more convenient water!

  424. melanie says:

    This would be so great for my family!

  425. andra says:

    I’ve been trying to learn more about safe water and to teach others through my meeting and mother groups. It’s so wonderful that you share such useful information. thank you!

  426. HaleyLeann says:

  427. Ashley R N says:

    What a great way to save our kidneys!

  428. Amy says:

    We live in a city that adds (A LOT!) of flouride to the water. YUCK!

  429. Deitra Brunner says:

    I would like to win this filter because I hate running out of bottled water especially when my grandchildren are here. I believe that I would give them more water to drink and less juice if I had a filter such as this one and didn’t have to be concerned with trying to replace the bottles of water.

  430. Lorien Lanouette says:

    I have never heard of this filter before and I have always been interested in providing the best water for my family!

  431. Rachel says:

    I’ve been eyeing this filter for some time. I’d love to use it to make my baby’s homemade formula.

  432. Abbie says:

    This is a GREAT giveaway! Would love to win one….

  433. Devorah says:

    I’ve wanted to try a better water filter for a while now!

  434. Autumn says:

    I would so love this!!! Fingers crossed!!!

  435. Kimberly says:

    I have been wanting one of these for a while! I want to get the clean water it provides without the flouride. I have 4 small children and I want to do all /O can to keep chemicals away from them and out of their bodies. What can be more basic than clean, healthy water?

  436. shannon says:

    we would LOVE such a wonderful water filter. Seeing what our “good” ones leave out is just sad!! : (

  437. Renae says:

    This would be fantastic for my family!!

  438. Laura says:

    We would LOVE the Berkey water filter!!!

  439. Aleta says:

    I would love to win this!!

  440. Jennifer says:

    We live in a rental and are using a Pur Water Filter. We have been thinking of buying one of these so we can filter out more of the bad stuff, especially Flouride, that our city has voted to add to the water supply. We would love to win this!

  441. Frances says:

    I live in the country with a well. Sometimes I worry about pesticides leaching into our water supply from the fields around us.

  442. Laurel K says:

    This looks awesome!!!

    Would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win a Berkey system!!! I would love to not have to go and refill water bottles all of the time, and would love to get the filter that removes fluoride!

  445. Kimberly says:

    This is really gross and really scary. I’m renting a house built in 1926. I tried to have a rental filtration/softening system installed, but the pipes are galvanized :( I’ve been using my Brita for10 years and had no idea it was barely catching anything. Thanks for the post!

  446. Lindsey says:

    I would love to drink clean water!

  447. Ande says:

    Everyone deserves clean water!

  448. Elizabeth says:

    I just want to enjoy deinking water

  449. Claire says:

    We have a great filter, but would have had to replace lots of plumbing in our new home in order to use it, which we can’t afford to do! We’d LOVE to have Berkey to truly filter our water!

  450. Olivia says:

    I would love to have one of these because the place we live has the worst water and I’m pregnant with our first baby! I’d love to keep these bad things out!

  451. Jesse says:

    We own a, quite expensive Tyent water system and love it. The Berkey sounds great too and I would give it to a friend that is not a follower of yours, if I won it!

  452. sha says:

    it is so hard to find a decent filter that gets rid of everything…i know my brita doesnt do much but others are out of my budget at the moment. i hope to win this beauty! i already have a spot and shrine set up…..errrr i mean a spot on my counter for it! lol

  453. Talia says:

    I’ve been DYING for one of these but unfortunately it’s not in the budget!

  454. Jessica G says:

    I have been wanting one since your blog post several years ago comparing the different filters. Now that we are learning more about the dangers of fluoride, we are actively saving for one, but winning it and being able to put the money we have saved towards a Vitamix (next on the list) would be awesome!

  455. Jasmine says:

    I have been really concerned about all of the junk in our water, especially floride. We would love this!

  456. I so need this filter! We are starting gaps and have horribly fluoridated water but haven’t been able to afford this filter. Winning one would be a dream!

  457. Rachel says:

    Love that the Berkey doesn’t remove the beneficial minerals, in addition to being both economical and beautiful.

  458. Antonia says:

    I would absolutely love to win this Berkey filter! We live in the suburbs and our water is city water which is highly fluoridated. I have a nearly 10 month old daughter who is primarily breastfed right now, but she’ll be drinking water soon and I’m so concerned about our tap water. We were going to purchase the Big Berkey but it’s just too expensive for us right now.

  459. Jennifer says:

    We have been wanting a Berkey for a long time, it would be great to win one! We now drive 90 miles round trip to get good water, this would be a huge time and money saver for us. Thanks!

  460. Julie says:

    We live downriver from an active nuclear power plant so we need all the extra filtering we can get!

  461. Megan says:

    Wow, sign me up! Thanks Mommypotamus :)

  462. Julie H says:

    Love this. I need a Berkey. My water tastes like it came from a swimming pool.

  463. Molly says:

    I’ve had my eye on a Berkey for a long time. Would love to win this one!

  464. Clinton says:

    Because we like shiny things.

  465. Heather says:

    I would love the Walter filter.

  466. Tracey says:

    Just what I have been looking for! :)

  467. april says:

    I would love to have this I currently fill up jugs every week from the store.

  468. Kelly says:

    I have used the Berkey before and loved it. It would be nice to have filtered water for the family and the fact that it doesn’t require electricity or running water is wonderful.

  469. Stefani says:

    Our water is fluoridated and my 6 month old daughter will be drinking water soon, so I would love to give her a nice clean start.

  470. Sami says:

    We would love to win a Berkey. We are needing one, whether we win :) or purchase one. Myself and my 3 young children all have corn allergies, and this is the only filter I know of that can safely filter out the chlorine and do it without using a corn filled filter. Being allergic to our tap water, and most bottled water is rough. Thankfully our allergies are putting us on a healthier path!

  471. Susie says:

    This has been on my desperately-want list ever since I read about them. Fingers crossed!

  472. Mary says:

    I would love to know I was drinking really clean water.

  473. Melanie says:

    Would love to win this. We are on the GAPS diet and this would be so helpful in the healing of my daughter!

  474. Cristin says:

    Everything I’ve read highly recommends Berkey’s & with a one year old & a three year old there’s nothing more important than clean water. Unfortunately, many local water municipalities or redistribution systems, especially smaller ones do not or are not required to perform all the detailed analyses only bare bones analyses on top of a good dose of chlorine. I am well aware that limits should & currently do meet federal regulations, however, I’m on that crazy ferry boat that believes that consuming low levels of many substances, especially chlorine is not in our best interest.

  475. Tracie says:

    I would love to win this Berkey! How great it would be to be able to filter the water we already pay for rather than buy our drinking water at the store!

  476. justine says:

    Every family deserves safe and clean drinking water! Thank you for the chance to win a Berkey!

  477. Fernanda Galvez says:

    Berkey is the bomb! I have recently become convicted of how vital it is to drink clean water! Love this give-away!

  478. Cindy Sullivan says:

    One of our friends have a Berkey and speak highly of it! Would love to have one of our own!

  479. Gillian Goff says:

    This has been on the list of things we would like but can’t afford. Currently we fill glass jugs up and leave them for a day. This would be soo wonderful!

  480. Laura H. says:

    I’ve wanted a Berkey for a while now to have clean water!

  481. Debora Beyer says:

    I would also love to have one of these. Tried to talk our plumber into putting a whole house filter on our house but he thought I was crazy. Sorry mister, but I get tired and wore out from carting 2.5 gallons, water bottles, and just gallons of water into my house. I just want nothing more to do with flouride, chlorine, and other nasty things.

  482. Lori Lusk says:

    I have been studying more about flouride’s toxic effects on our bodies and would love to have this water filter to better my family’s health

  483. roxanna says:

    I NEED this SO bad!!! Thanks for doing this, I know whoever gets it will appreciate the clean water :)

  484. Clare Ruedi says:

    I am only 18 and I still live at home, but this filter seems so amazing. If I won it, I would definitely take it with me to college, which would be especially useful during years of my life which are most stressful on my body! :)

  485. Amanda Perez says:

    Would love one!

  486. Lynne says:

    We have a reverse osmosis system which does a decent job, but is quite wasteful and I worry about the effects on the septic system. I love that the Berkey doesn’t require electricity and is very efficient.

  487. Julia says:

    I would be soooooo happy to win this :-)

  488. Dionne Woods says:

    I would love to win this! I try to avoid our city’s tap water!

  489. Amy McD says:

    We are about to bring home our second child from Ethiopia. This filter would be so helpful because our “clean” water is hard on those who aren’t used to treated water. Thanks for offering the giveaway!!

  490. AmandaG says:

    Great giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  491. Kris A says:

    I have been concerned about fluoride intake for a long time, but I grew even more alarmed when I heard the fluoride talk given by the doctor on the Heal Thy Mouth summit! I am a cancer survivor (was diagnosed with a stage 4 immune system cancer when my first born was 2 months old) and the mama of two little ones, so I take good health REALLY seriously and am so angry that this pollutant is being dumped into our municipal water supply without anyone’s consent. I would LOVE to win this Berkey, particularly since this is a size that isn’t legally sold in California, where I live. Thanks for the contest and the wonderful blog!

  492. Leslie says:

    Would love this!

  493. Tanya Fruth says:

    I would love to win a Berkey for my family of 9!!

  494. Ali says:

    I want to win a Berkey because I want to give my family clean healthy drinking water!

  495. Sharon says:

    The Berkey filter looks awesome! Currently I am purchasing filtered water and it would be great not to have to lug water jugs.

  496. I would love to win this because I’ve heard that the royal berkey water filters are the best in the world (as far as water filtration) especially with bad stuff like fluoride and chlorine that can negatively affect your intelligence, your health and gut flora. My younger sister owns a royal berkey and has been urging me to get one of for months. Right now, I’m on a major health kick,not only to heal from my allergies and improve my gut flora, but to heal my other health problems, and the best way to start is with the nutrient that can clean out toxins – water. I was going to purchase a Royal berkey this month anyway, but winning one would be awesome! Thanks :)

  497. Emily Upchurch says:

    My husband went water filter shopping last year…but we haven’t been able to afford to get one yet. We have city water and would love to have a Berkey until we’re able to move onto our own land (with our own well water!).

  498. Andrea says:

    WOW! This is a fantastic giveaway. Several friends of the Berkey and love it.

  499. Jaime says:

    I’ve been wanting a Berkey for a loooong time, but can only afford one real food change at a time.

  500. Mira says:

    Oh I would love to win this!! I would like to win it because I just bought one but my husband would be encouraged if I could see it and do something else with the money instead to help out with the finances!

  501. Lindsey says:

    I have wanted one for along time but they are out of my price range.

  502. Sasha M says:

    We’ve wanted this system for so long!

  503. Chari says:

    I would love a chance to try this out!

  504. Christine says:

    With our health issues, we could definitely use a Berkey. Thanks.

  505. Hayley says:

    Looking for a non-electric option for our water filtration, especially in case of emergency or the end of the world.. gotta be prepared for anything!

  506. Amanda says:

    I’ve been looking at Berkey’s lately – would love to own one!

  507. JessicaB says:

    I would love to get rid of the Flouride in our water, since it really isn’t safe to drink this chemical and it is only potentially beneficial with topical applications to teeth. Also don’t want any medications or anything in our water….I just heard of this filter the other day and was thinking of buying one, but winning one would be so much better.

  508. Emi says:

    I would LOVE a Berkey! It’s on our “things we’re saving up for” list. It would be lovely to win & get one sooner than later. Thank you for the chance!

  509. I want to win this so I don’t have to buy one! :) haha

  510. Megan says:

    I would love to win this for my fam!

  511. Ashley Aré says:

    Thanks for the great opportunity to win a Berkley!!

  512. Krystal says:

    looks wonderful!

  513. Maggie Purifoy says:

    I have chemical sensitivities, and we are always looking for ways to get more of them out of our environment!

  514. Lela says:

    The berkey is the best!

  515. Emily Keffler says:

    So excited about this giveaway! We have this on the list with new mattresses that are flame retardant free. It just all adds up financially. Hope we win!

  516. Teresa says:

    Louisville has some of the best tap water in the country BUT it still has fluoride and other toxins that I would like to remove. I would LOVE to have a Big Berkey – it’s my number one choice :)

  517. Amanda says:

    I would love to win a water filter so I can have safe, clean, beautiful water to drink and so that I can avoid having to fork over $300 to buy one myself.

  518. Sara says:

    Anything to drink pure water- what could be better !

  519. April says:

    I have been watching this item for a long time because I want my family to drink clean, pure water! It would be so great to be able to finally reach that goal! Thanks! :)

  520. Janet McCulloch says:

    What an awesome giveaway. We live in a small community near Lake Huron. I have always been concerned about our water system, and although I use a Brita Filter System, I feel it doesn’t do the best filtering job. I would love to win the Berkey filter as it is way out of my price range.

  521. Sandra says:

    My son and his wife are expecting a new baby. I would give this to them.

  522. I’d love to win one to be sure my family is drinking the purest water they can.

  523. Joanna says:

    We use Berkey and love it!

  524. Karisa Rife says:

    I would luv luv luv this!!! I want this system so bad!!

  525. Janis says:

    I live in the country. All of the fields above my well source are sprayed with liquid pig manure plus I live across the road from the pig farm that provides the manure. And all of the fields are sprayed with herbicide and pesticides. I’m concerned about these substances getting in my well water. We have 7 children so purchasing water for a family our size is expensive. This filtration system sounds wonderful!

  526. Kelly says:

    I do everything I can to remove my exposure to excess chemicals so my body can heal.

  527. Melissa says:

    I value drinking clean water!

  528. Leta says:

    You really make mine and my family’s life so much more rich with all of your information and insight. I really appreciate that there are other mom’s out there like you whom are digging for the right answers to the exuberant amount of problems threatening our health that we face on the daily! And…you take the time to share. :D I’m so grateful to have found this resource. Many Blessings to you and your family. And, thank you for the opportunity to excess the healing water we were meant to drink.

  529. Natalie says:

    I have wanted one of these for a long time! Great giveaway!

  530. Amber says:

    A Berkey is on my “Tax Return Money” List, but I’d love to win one so I’d have more to spend at Mountain Rose Herbs!

    The water in our area is really, really bad. We have been looking at investing in a Berkey for a while, but after some dental research this fall/winter we’ve decided removing fluoride from our drinking water is a must! No rat poison for us!!

  531. Cassie Nickle says:

    I’d love to win a filter and know that what I’m drinking is SAFE!

  532. Angela says:

    Oh, how I would love a Berkey!!! Ever since we moved to our house last year that is on city water, I’ve kept this on my wish list. It’s also no coincidence that I’ve had issues with acne since living here, either. Nasty flouride!

  533. Lacey says:

    I have been eyeing the Berkey for a while now… It is one of the last things our family needs to transition to an all organic/natural lifestyle! Thanks for the giveaway!

  534. Julie says:

    We recently moved and needed to instal a system to raise the ph of our water so it wouldn’t erode our lead pipes and contaminate our water with lead. However, after having a $2000 system installed, it has malfunctioned at least four times in the past 8 months. Luckily my husband checks the water weekly so we knew about it and could find another water solution…I wonder how many families install this system and never check :-(. Anyway… I think it is time to find another solution. This berkey would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win

  535. Tammy May says:

    I really enjoy reading your blog. I am an “older” mom with older, married children and grandchildren and then still 5 children at home ages 9-17. I try my best to feed my family well and getting pure water is big part of that. I would love to win this Berkey water system to better enable me to take care of the needs of my family. Thanks!

  536. Leslie says:

    Would love to give this filter a go! Have heard wonderful things about it and want my family to have what everyone should be privy to-clean water!

  537. Shereen says:

    I have really been wanting to get a good filter since the HealThyMouth Summit!

  538. Hollie says:

    Oooh! Would love this!

  539. Amanda says:

    I am preggo and a berkey is on my amazon wishlist! It would be so awesome to win!!

  540. Helen says:

    I would love to drink healthier water!

  541. Stephanie says:

    I would love this Berkey for our family!

  542. Leah says:

    I recently got married (:)!!!) and we are definitely trying to save up for a berkey filter – this would help our budget immensely!!

  543. Karen says:

    Would love this to help move me toward even greater health…

  544. Nedra Kaufman says:

    I would love to win a Berkey so that I can stop buying water at the store and lugging it home! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  545. Tammy R. says:

    I would love to win one of these as my current water system is about to stop making the filters for it, so I won’t have a good one. Not looking forward to replacing it but will definitely go with a Berkey when the time comes. Thanks for the chance!

  546. Kumquaty says:

    this would be SO much better than my brita filter. I don’t trust no BPA plastics but don’t know how else to filter my water

  547. April says:

    Very Cool!

  548. Leah says:

    I just want clean water for me and my family. Thanks so much for the chance to win! :)

  549. shari says:

    We need a water filter. And this one looks great!

  550. Kallyn says:

    Would love to win one of these. We just bought our first home, and this would be a perfect addition!

  551. Anna says:

    Have been wanting one for years :)

  552. Heather says:

    We would love a Berkey water filter. We are a family of 5 with 2 kiddos on the ASD spectrum. Our son also has muscle disease called central core disease. We have to be very careful of what goes into their little bodies!! So far we’ve been using our fridge filter for water. I was not aware of how bad this can be!!

  553. Meggan says:

    I’ve been wanting one of these for a LOOOOOONG time!

  554. Stacy says:

    I would love to win this so I could now I was giving my family really good water!

  555. It would be awesome to be able to drink our tap water with a filter. Currently we’re refilling jugs at the grocery store from their reverse-osmosis filtered tank.

  556. cherieann says:

    Thanks for this giveaway. I know it is a lot of work. Thanks for everything you do to help keep us all informed about our healthy choices today.

  557. Tamara says:

    I would love a Berkey filter!!!!

  558. Sarah says:

    I have been longing for this excellent water filtration system for my family. We are striving towards healthful living for our little guys. (I have a Micah too)

  559. Jennifer says:

    I would love this! So far I haven’t been able to convince my husband of the need for the investment.

  560. Sara Burns says:

    I want this! Truly CLEAN water.

  561. Amelia says:

    Pick me, pick me!!!

  562. larisa cox says:

    awesome! hope to win

  563. Ashley says:

    My husband and I were just talking about wanting one of these!

  564. Holly says:

    I’ve been wanting a Berkey for YEARS! But it hasn’t been in the budget. I hate using my brita and would love the Berkey!!

  565. Jessie A says:

    To keep my family safe from harmful toxins!

  566. jessica says:

    omg, yes!!

  567. April Tvinnereim says:

    My family loves to drink RO water. We would live the opportunity to win this. Thanks!

  568. Jamie Higgins says:

    I want this! Pick me! Pick me!

  569. Chandra Fischer says:

    I would so love to own a Berkey water filter! Been wanting one for a long time…I don’t trust the fridge filter plus I much prefer to drink my water at room temperature.

  570. Beth says:

    I would love to win this Berkey. I’ve been wanting one for my family for a long time.

  571. miranda says:

    I’d love to have great clean water with a berkey

  572. Catherine crabtree says:

    I was just telling my husband how I wanted one of these!!!

  573. Denise says:

    I have been so impressed with the Berkey and would love to win!!!

  574. Michelle AP says:

    Have wanted one of these for a couple years! Have been using reverse osmosis…now that I know more, I would really like to replace it. Thanks for the chance to win!

  575. Would love this for my family! The water in our city makes us sick! Even which a brita filter my tummy can’t handle it. Ready to stop buying plastic jugs.

  576. Dusty says:

    Because my Mom doesn’t like drinking water & she really needs to. She’s diabetic & uses all the bad diet drinks & Splenda!

  577. Ginger Perron says:

    Being home with my four little treasures makes it tricky to keep up with the huge water jug refills at our local grocery store. And who knows when they replace their filters?!? But, because we rent in an urban area, that is our best option. To win this filter would be a HUGE blessing. We’ve thought about installing one in this house but found it all too pricey, so to have a beautiful filter to carry along with us when we move would be awesome. Thanks for all your healing advice and for this thoughtful giveaway!!

  578. Meghan says:

    My husband are currently saving up for one of these. The well water at our new home smells and tastes so bad that we’re temporarily “filtering” our water using a block of lump hardwood charcoal! I hope we win! We sure could use this money elsewhere… Like on the itty bitty baby in my belly!

  579. allison says:

    I would love to win this! Having a filtration system that actually works would be awesome.

  580. Diana says:

    Can’t WAIT for my family to drink this water! As a breast feeding mamas well, this type of real pure hydration is super important!!

  581. Pamela Hill says:

    Our family needs a great filter, we drink so much water. This one looks amazing!

  582. Megan Tye says:

    This filter looks amazing!!! We are
    about to move and all our money is
    going into renovations :( I am so
    picky about the water I give my family-
    and this sounds like it would be great!!!
    If you feel led to….PICK ME! :) :) :)

  583. Right now, in order to get acceptable water, we have to run somewhere. It would be awesome to not leave the house!

  584. Wendy Spencer says:

    We’re moving to a new house in 4 weeks across the country and definitely need a filter like this!

  585. Pat says:

    I’ve bought bottled water for years because our municipal water is so strong with cholorine.
    It would be so nice to own a Berkey.

  586. Michelle says:

    My mother had purchased one of these and she LOVES it! I would be more than blessed if I won this for my daughter and I!

  587. Tara says:

    This would make my year if I won this! I have been wanting one since I learned of it! It is unacceptable what is in our water.

  588. Linda says:

    the Berkey system would be a welcome addition to our household :-)

  589. Marcia says:

    I would love to own this. We’ve changed so much about our diets in the last year. Water is one of the last things. Plus, I never win so it would be fun!

  590. Christina Rochette says:

    I want this filter because I’ve wanted a home water filter for a long time and spend a lot of money on filtered water from the store for my fermented foods. I wish I were able to afford filtered water for my family, but I can’t. We are on food stamps and I try my best to offer all the healthy things I can manage to get my family.

  591. L. Munoz says:

    With well water and living so close to the lake I need to ensure my children and I have safe clean water. This berkey water filter would be perfect.

  592. Erin says:

    Love your site. So many great tips on living well. I could really use a water filter as our water smells like chlorine. Yuck.

  593. Rachel Fite says:

    How cool would it be to win the exact filter I have been saving to buy!! I would love this for my family!

  594. Dena Swinson says:

    AWe live in a city where we get a notice from the water company almost every month explaining how they exceeded some level of some chemical this month, but not to worry because it’s not really dangerous like the epa says it is. We need one of these!

  595. Dogwood says:

    It would be great to win! Water filtration has been on our list for a long time but just haven’t been able to afford it. This would get us one step closer on our journey to better health.

  596. Jessica says:

    I would really love this water filter as I have been looking into purchasing one, and have been reluctant only for financial reasons! The water in our small city is truly nasty and always has a strong chemical smell. I know myself and my three year old daughter would be much healthier and greener from using this filter rather than continuing to use bottled water.

  597. Chanda says:

    We are surrounded by toxic farms and our well has extremely hard water that for me is undrinkable and forcing me to buy RO water from the store. A water filter would save us a pile of money.

  598. Paul B says:

    I wanna win!

  599. Betsy says:

    i would love this

  600. Kathryn R. says:

    Would love to win a Berkley to remove all the nasty stuff that is in our city water!

  601. Liz Joiner says:

    I have wanted a Berkey for so long!!!

  602. Rachelle Clark says:

    Like so many, I would love the opportunity to drink decent water! Thanks!

  603. saroo says:

    My sister has one of the filters and I have been wanting one for myself because I would like to have one for my family. The water contamination problem is very concerning to me, particularly for young, growing children.

  604. Amber Koons-Rowland says:

    I just heard about this amazing filter from my sister-in-law. We were talking about the effects of fluoride. I have 2 small children, one bottle-fed 8 month old and I want the absolute best for them. This would give me a peace of mind knowing that their drinking water is at least better for them than any bottled water…its also more eco-friendly.

  605. Alison Fryfogle says:

    I have read and heard so much about the Berkey, and would LOVE to win this!!!!

  606. Wendy W. says:

    Oh, my this has been on my want list for so long!

  607. having a husband in the military, a four year old and a baby on the way means i’m not only concerned about my families health but uncertain where i will be living in the next year. this would be so helpful and give me one less thing to worry about when moving into a new place! so grateful for this giveaway!

  608. Andrea says:

    I’ve wanted one of these for some time. Thanks!

  609. Kim says:

    I have two young kids, 1 and 2 yrs, and would love this for my family.

  610. Aimee says:

    This is the exact water filter I have been trying to convince my husband we NEED! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  611. Carrissa says:

    I would love this filter. We’re in the market for a filter and winning would be a huge blessing!

  612. Jenny says:

    I would love to win a Berkey! I want my family to drink purified water but I don’t want to buy (nor do I trust) bottled water because I am trying to purge plastic from our lives as well.

  613. Marie Virnich says:

    I want one because my kids love water but I hate to let them drink it knowing what is in it.

  614. Misha says:

    We have a whole house filter, but I still really question our water. I would feel so much better if we used a Berkey.

  615. Iva says:

    Looks like a good filter and I’ve been worried about our drinking water for quite some time

  616. Mary says:

    I have been looking at this for awhile now and I really want one but can’t afford it yet. Winning this would be so wonderful for me and my family. Thanks for the chance.

  617. Rose says:

    I was just starting research on Berkeys. It’s good to know you are happy with them.

  618. Lisa Reichert says:

    I just started researching Berkey and have been thinking of a way to convince my husband we NEED this . Your giveaway might save me a debate! :)

  619. Katherine says:

    To keep my family safe

  620. Jill Griffis says:

    I am about to move my family into a new little apartment built into a barn. It’s a new adventure while my husband does an apprenticeship on a farm down the road. The property that we will be staying on was owned my his grandfather, who, though we loved him dearly, sprayed EVERYTHING with as much chemical pesticides and fertilizers to either stop or grow a rhino. The well to this barn is underneath his old garden. It’s been years since he gardened there, but there is no telling what lies below the surface to this day. Kinda sounds like a ghost story. I want a Berkey so that we don’t end up being the ghost story.

    We’ve been trusting Santa Cruz, CA city water, which doesn’t have fluoride (yay!), but I’m sure it still isn’t as safe as Berkey water. I would LOVE this water filter! And it would also be great for earthquake/disaster preparedness!

  622. Jessica says:

    I’ve wanted one of these for so long!

  623. mindy says:

    what a great giveaway! everyone should be so lucky to have one!

  624. Jada says:

    I feel like pure drinking water is the next step we need to take for better health and wellness in our family. We would so appreciate winning this! Thank you for the opportunity!

  625. Jessica Schaefer says:

    I would love to win a Berkey Water Filter to help keep my family safe and healthy!

  626. Sarah says:

    Berkley’s are the best of the best, finding out what our fridge doesn’t filter out and all the weird that ends up in our water supply is astounding. There are way too many hormones floating around in our food and water.

    I would like to win this give away

  628. Molly says:

    my PURE filter isn’t cutting it, we are still left drinking fluoride, heavy metals, and other chemicals. I would love to have a Berkey filter to help better protect my family.

  629. Shannon says:

    I have really bad well water and my water filtering system is no longer working and needs replaced. Even when the system was working, we were buying bottled water for drinking which we continue to do. Winning the Berkey would be wonderful!!

  630. Miriam says:

    We could absolutely use this! We get our water from a shallow well, but we’re also surrounded by dairy farms and I’m scared to think of what’s leaking into the ground around us! We buy bottled water, but that costs money, and creates trash. :P

  631. Lorina says:

    I have been drooling over these filters for some time now!

  632. Alyssa says:

    I would love to win the Berkey water filter! We don’t have any type of water filtration system in our home and would love to have a method to purify our water for drinking and cooking. Thank you!

  633. Brittany says:

    I would LOVE to win this! Would be awesome to not have to wonder what I’m drinking!

  634. Gina says:

    I’ve been wanting one for a couple of years now

  635. Saliah says:

    Owning a Royal Berkey would be quite a step up from my Pur water filter. :) The winner will be so very blessed to be the proud new owner of this system.

  636. Margo says:

    I have a basic “wish list” on my fridge and a Berkey is on the list along with more cloth diapers, a rotating composter, digital scale and of course, world peace!!

  637. Jeeun says:

    Would luv to filter as much junk as possible out of my water.

  638. Shannon says:

    We rent a home one acerage and we have well water. I would love to have a filter to get out who knows what in our well water.

  639. Kathy says:

    I want the best for my kids and mostly my grandchildren when they are here. In todays world you cannot be too safe. Water the best thing in the whole world to drink, you just want to feel good about drinking it. With the Berkey I would feel safe. Having suffered the effects of drinking contaminated water years ago, I would not wish that on anyone.

  640. shannon says:

    I would love to win!!!

  641. Ginger says:

    We really need a water filter system. We use a Brita and it’s just not cutting it. This would be ideal!

  642. Caressa says:

    We NEED this at our home!! Our water is sooooo gross I only use it to boil eggs and water plants with. We never ever drink it. Its so hard that when we had to replace the copper pipes from teh water main to the house..the inside was green and corroding and just awful looking..(terrified to knwo what the inside of the plumbing of my house looks like) anyway, the water is so harsh that after sometime we have to replace the flusher on the toilet bc it erodes..umm I dont know how often that is bc my hubby does it, but is that normal?? Wish we could afford a cleaning system for the whole house..but that is a dream..anyway..on top of that, the residue it leaves behind on my dishes sometimes. Annoying..a nice filtration system like this would be AWESOME!!

  643. Ashley says:

    Im trying to be healthier and this would be great to add to my health quest.

  644. jenny says:

    My family and i would love this, love that it has fluoride filters!!

  645. Rebecca says:

    I absolutely NEED a Berkey! I have a baby on the way and would like to start cleaning up my water now that I’ve cleaned up my food. Purchasing one just isn’t in the budget, so winning one would be a life changer!

  646. Jacquelyn says:

    I’d love to win one! I have no idea when we’d ever be able to buy something like this, but winning one would amazing!

  647. Christa says:

    Love Berkey Water! :)

  648. Ellen says:

    We live right next to Kennecot copper mine and I am sure we are getting lots of hard minerals in our well water! I would love one of these. Thanks for the giveaway!

  649. Rachel N says:

    We would love to have a filter that removes fluoride. I hope I win this one. Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  650. Sharla says:

    I would LOVE to win this! I have been wanting one forever!

  651. I want to win because our city water seems to be full of chlorine and I know has measured high for arsenic, and I believe borderline for others. I’m mostly back to buying bottled because of this. Would love to have this! Thanks for the chance.
