Help keep water clean

Clean water is important to all of us and the animals who share our world. We call on all of our neighbors to join us as we strive to protect and conserve water. If we don’t, we won’t have clean water to use. Here are some simple ways you can help.

Take showers and make sure they are short.

Turn off the sink when you’re not using it, like while you are brushing your teeth.

Do not wash your car in your driveway where cleaning chemicals can run down the street drains and into our water supply.

Fill water bottles halfway.

Never pollute water.

We timed our first announcements to coincide with United Nations Water Day. For more information, check out this website: www.unwater.org/worldwaterday/home/en/.
