Water Saving Week
Water Saving Week is when people across the county are encouraged to help save water and help protect the environment.
Hosted by Waterwise, this year’s Water Saving Week focuses on the vital link between climate change and water efficiency. The campaign aims to spread awareness about how important saving water is for coping with climate change, keeping our environment healthy, and helping our communities to thrive. Each day there will be a specific focus on a compelling reason why saving water is so important.
You can also sign up to our Pledge15 campaign to reduce the amount of water you use and be in with a chance of winning a prize.
▶️ Did you know?Climate change, population increases and changes in lifestyle have led to increasing pressure being put on our water supplies. As a result, it is more important than ever that we take care with how we use water. Taking positive action now can help to ensure that there is enough water to go around: for our neighbourhoods, for our businesses and for the environment.
