Some compnaies are just a little ridiculous with their "Green" messaging.
Example: Moen Newsletter
In the middle of the email it states "EVERY DROP MATTERS," but if you look at most of the images they are wasting water in every photo!
It's important to focus our energy on things that really matter. If they can sell 100,000 water-efficient faucets, that's much more important than saving a few drops during the photo shoot
I think cities across the country should be promoting rain water capture.
Depending on budgets concerns and systems installed, people can capture a few gallons to hundreds of gallons; which could be used for their gardens/trees.
And we must say no to lawns and be done with it.
Such a massive waste of water, emissions from gas powered lawn mowers, leaf
blowers, trimmers. Bah!
Many cities are already implementing conservation programs because of water
shortages in their area but conservation should be everywhere and not just in drought
stricken areas. Low flows on showers/toilets saves a lot of water.
I like the psa that shows a person cayacking down a river, then the
camera pulls back to show that it's a lawn sprinker, and all the wasted water
flowing down the street into the cities drainage system.
This is a great point. Look at Nature. The hills turn brown in the summer but they always come back to life.
