Friendly to the Environment and your wallet
The Crown Berkey can help you reduce you carbon footprint by eliminating the need for bottled water, a wasteful and environmentally unfriendly solution. 1.5 million tons of oil were used to produce the plastic bottles used each year. These bottles contain a ridiculously small amount of an exorbitantly priced commodity – water – 85% of those bottles end up in landfills. Add to that the Berkey water purifier uses no electricity.
