Take action today to help alleviate the water crisis
The Surfrider Foundation [surfrider.org], a leading non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches, is working with communities, affected states and other agencies to help address the west-coast drought and set a precedent for water conservation and quality nationwide.
“As President Obama prepares to take the stage and confront California’s drought issues today,” says Surfrider Foundation’s Environmental Director Chad Nelsen, “it’s important to recognize that the drought will no longer be the exception, but the rule. We must shift our thinking and act to conserve and reuse the world’s most valuable resource: water.”
Water efficiency helps decrease the amount of water wasted—meaning less polluted water entering our oceans.
Below are changes you can make in your daily routines to start saving water now, no trips to the hardware store required.
