If we humans (and fellow pets and animals) are such watery creatures living in a watery world, why do we need to use less water — and instead, use water wisely? It sounds like there is a lot of water. There is — but that same amount was here millions of years ago — yet nowadays there are millions more people using the Earth’s water.
At Serpico Landscaping, our teams know that by doing our part to use less water—conserve it, protect it and keep water clean—then the water we have available will go further.
Using Water Wisely Is Called A Best Management Practice.
As a leading SF Bay Area tree care, commercial landscaping and irrigation firm — offering water management programs good for up to ten years or more…Serpico is all about best practices! For starters, we actively engage in, and encourage, recycled wood products for mulching in thick heaps! — to help soak water in the soil and help keep water from evaporating quickly.
To keep water clean do you know that:
- Removing trash from rivers, ponds, and highways keeps water cleaner…
- Controlled-flow nozzle on a hose saves water…
- Cleaning up pet waste prevents it from entering nearby streams and keeps water cleaner
- Fixing oil leaks in your parents’ car helps keep motor oil from entering streams and waterways???
If so, then you’re going to ace this new fun game!
If you think the best place to wash your family’s car is on the roof…then you need to play this game too! If you or your parents are letting the water run when washing the car — then that is a good example of water wasting. This game shows us a sponge and bucket of water to wash your car will help save water.
We even have heard of people who re-use their dehumidifier water to water their plants and trees (which is a very good way of recycling water)!
Filling the washing machine with a full wash-load saves water and energy! …just like washing one plate and one fork by hand, is the best way to save water for cleaning up after small meals.
We think water users of all ages will enjoy this fun game — brought to you courtesy of StopWaste.org and DiscoverWater.org and their affiliates: Project WET Foundation, and Nestlé’s Waters North America.
