Brita - Water Pitcher Replacement Filters - 3 Filters
Brita Water Pitcher Replacement Filters are used in all Brita pitchers and dispensers. Brita filters reduce impurities like chlorine (taste and odor), mercury, copper, cadmium and zinc. Remember to replace them every 40 gallons (about 2 months for the average family) to keep your water tasting great. These replacement filters reduce many of the undesired extras that come out of your tap. Brita's redesigned filters no longer require pre-soak, and won't leave black flecks in your water. These filters are compatible with all Brita pitchers and dispensers.

So how did an idea from a small town in Germany become an international success? It all started in 1966, when West German entrepreneur Heinz Hankammer set out to fulfill his vision of optimizing normal tap water. He began production under a pear tree in the family's garden, affectionately naming the company after his daughter, Brita. More than 45 years later, Brita is now considered a world market leader of home water filtration products.
Brita makes it easier to reduce bottled water waste, save money and go green
One Brita pitcher filter can effectively replace as many as 300 standard 16.9-ounce bottles. So you can get great-tasting water without so much waste. For about $10 each, you can purchase a 16-ounce or 32-ounce Nalgene bottle, saving you hundreds of dollars a year on bottled water. Plus, one bottle can last for years.
Transforming ordinary tap water into healthier, great-tasting water
A tall glass of water can help you feel better and stay healthier. At Brita, they believe it should taste good, too. That's why their filters are designed to reduce the common impurity chlorine, found in tap water. Use Brita filtered water for cooking, coffee, tea, plants and even for your thirsty pets!
Better for your wallet — and for the environment
Over the course of a year, the average Brita pitcher filters 240 gallons of water — or about the same as 1800 standard 16.9-ounce plastic bottles. And one filter can replace 300 bottles of water and save over $600 a year. They believe that a few simple steps — like filtering your water and reducing plastic waste — can create a big impact when everyone does them together.
Raising awareness bottle by bottle
Brita joined forces with Nalgene to create the FilterForGood program, which encourages consumers to reduce plastic waste by pledging to refill reusable bottles with filtered water. Along the way, they've picked up an amazing and diverse roster of partners such as The Sundance Film Festival, NBC's The Biggest Loser and Surfrider. Since Brita started, consumers from around the world have pledged to save over 260 million plastic bottles — and counting.
