Jersey Water is backing a national week-long campaign to promote simple water saving tips for the home, garden, schools, workplace and communities. The company has joined forces with Waterwise and WaterSafe for Water Saving Week, which runs from 21 – 25 March 2016.
Water Saving Week aims to raise awareness of the need for everyone to use water wisely – whatever the weather and wherever the location – to protect this precious and finite resource for generations to come.
The campaign will see five themes across the week, all with daily challenges and water saving tips. These include “water in school”, “water in your workplace” and “water in your home”.
For homes, schools and businesses which are on a water meter and pay for the amount of water they use, this can also mean welcome savings on water and energy bills.
And as the campaign coincides with Easter – the traditional time of year gardeners start thinking about this season’s planting and families get out and about – other themes include “water in the garden” and “water in the community”.
We kick-started the campaign with a visit to Miss Pretty’s Year 1 Class at St Clement School. Asking the children to think about where water comes from and ways to avoid wasting it, the children gave some excellent ideas. We are proud to share their artwork themed around the ‘Water Journey’ for you here.
