CELEBRATE EARTH DAY

Earth Day will be celebrated around the world on Thursday, April 22. 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water, but only 2.5% is freshwater. With so little water available to use for our daily needs, we need to do our part in protecting and conserving this precious resource. Here are just a few things you can do to be a good water steward:


1) Take short showers instead of baths

2) Run full loads of dishes and laundry

3) Water outside only when necessary

4) Check for leaky faucets and repair them

5) Limit amounts of fertilizer

6) Dispose of chemicals properly

7) Teach others about ways to protect and preserve water


Celebrate Earth Day each and every day by doing your part! How will you celebrate the day?
