These future friendly products are designed to save water, save energy and reduce waste:

  • By switching from bottled water to PUR faucet filtered water, you can save up to $600 a year** and make over a thousand bottles disappear*** (**Comparing the annual capacity and average price of PUR pitcher system and three refills to the corresponding number of average price of 16 oz. water bottles.) (***Based on average consumption of three bottles of water per household per day.)
  • Pampers Cruisers with Dry Max are made with ten percent less average material weight**** and moms using Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers today have generated 15 million fewer pounds of waste than in 2007***** (****Cruisers with Dry Max versus Cruisers 2007.) (*****Based on 2010 sales volume for Swaddlers/Cruisers.)
