Smart Irrigation Month

I’ve been visiting family here in my home state of CA this past month and temperatures have been very high! The idea of slip and slides and running through sprinklers have not been more appealing since childhood. Yet, just taking a few extra minutes in the shower makes me feel guilty. You see, on every major freeway you’ll find the lit up signs announcing the severe drought taking place here. It compelled me to look into the major causes and also share ways we can all pitch in and conserve water.

This isn’t just a problem in CA. Surprisingly, I learned that in the US  we have one of the highest averages of water use per person. Not surprising, I also learned that July is the peak month for water use. Through a campaign started in 2005 by the Irrigation Association it is now also considered Smart Irrigation Month. To learn more about how you can be involved and help support this cause visit their website: www.smartirrigationmonth.org.  You can also visit the EPA website and learn about the WaterSense program and products.

Going Green…Making Green

I was recently introduced to a very great and simple way of going green that can help make a huge positive impact on the Earth.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has created an opportunity for you to easily become pro-active. Through Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) you can help make a difference alongside other environmentally responsible individuals and even large corporations (Starbucks, Whole Foods, Microsoft, to name a few). Additionally, this month, a very well known eco-friendly based company will be launching the Clean Nation Revolution. Through this program you will have the opportunity to become a Renewable Energy Partner and make a great residual income. There is a short, informative video available at cleanvision.info. The site also provides other resources and information involving the program and business. There will be a live online presentation available tomorrow, Sunday Aug. 5th at 9pm EST. If you are interested in the opportunity or for more information please email: cleannation2012@gmail.com.
