Environmental entrepreneurs, or ecopreneurs, are people that believe that environmental products and services can serve as a synergy of business opportunity and environmental responsibility.
The Multipure Business Opportunity promotes not just entrepreneurship, but ecopreneurship. Multipure allows Independent Builders to attain financial success by promoting cleaner drinking water; Multipure filters are more environmentally responsible than disposable bottled water, whose plastic bottles can take anywhere from 400 to 1,000 years to biodegrade. Multipure Drinking Water Systems not only provide a way to enjoy water that is cleaner and more healthful than bottled water, but provide a solid carbon block filter that naturally biodegrades and even continues to remove environmental pollutions while in a landfill!
The problem with disposable bottled water:
Individual use of plastic water bottles has become a multi-billion dollar industry. Not only is bottled water much more expensive than tap water, but there is also a serious cost to our planet:
• 50 million barrels of oil are used annually to manufacture plastic water
• 2 million tons of plastic bottles end up in U.S. landfills each year.2
• Bottled water uses fossil fuels in the making, filling, transporting, and
recycling of plastic water bottles. To learn more about this process,

The Multipure Business Opportunity allows you to make a better future for yourself, for your family, and for the environment. By becoming a Multipure Independent Builder, you become not just a network marketer or entrepreneur, but an ecopreneur.
