Preparing for Earth Day Events

Earth Day offers a great opportunity to promote conservation at home and at work.  Even small changes make a huge impact on our environment so whether changes are made at home, in the community or in the workplace they all add up.

Tips to promote saving water:

  • Take shorter showers- this can save 5 gallons or more
  • Turn off water while brushing teeth- saves 3 gallons
  • Water lawn in the morning- saves 25 galons
  • Use a broom and not a hose- saves 150 gallons

5 Minute Shower timers are an excellent Earth Day giveaway to promote water conservation throughout the year.  These are a natural tie in for water companies, apartment complexes, hotels and more.

Encourage Employees & Staff to Go Green

  • Use lights only when you need them
  • Turn off your computer at the end of the day
  • Go paperless if & when possible
  • Bring your own reusable beverage cup
  • Carpool, use public transportation or bike to work when possible
  • Recycle
