In 2006 the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) held its first annual Water Efficiency Awards to recognize to organizations and individuals who are making a significant positive contribution to the way we use water. According to the EPA “The awards are intended to help foster a nationwide ethic of water efficiency, as well as to inspire, motivate, and recognize efforts to improve water efficiency. This program enables EPA to document ‘best practices,’ share information, encourage an ethic of water efficiency, and create a network of water efficiency leaders.”

The winners in five categories are:

  • Corporate: Toto USA, a plumbing fixture manufacturer who is a leader in developing water efficient fixtures and an advocate of water recycling. Advanced Mobile, a sustainable car wash company.
  • Individuals: Bill Sartor of the San Antonio Water System for his leadership as chairman of the Community Conservation Committee.

Entry filed under: politics, solutions, sustainability, technology, United States, water, water recycling.

2. Make a Scarf. Follow our easy instructions to make a beautiful and unique scarf. Wear one to show your support for those in need, and sell a few to your family and friends.

3. Donate. Give the money you raised from your scarf to a worthy charity (See our list of Resources). Even a little bit will change the lives of those who have no access to clean water.
