Water Conservation Education

PowerSave Green Campus in partnership with the Central Waste Reduction Team has created a water conservation display that is rotating through the campus dining halls. It will be in Cowell/Stevenson Dining Hall February 4-10 and in the College 8/Oakes Dining Hall February 18-24. The display includes a three-dimensional map of where UCSC gets its water, stacks of gallon jugs that illustrate water use in old versus new toilets, a cookbook detailing dining hall dishwashing water use, and posters with tips for conserving this precious resource. Students can make pledges to make more sustainable decisions, and participants will be entered in a raffle. The goal of this display is to inform students about how precious water is, inspire them to make changes in their own lives, and tell them what they can do to conserve water. Be looking out for the display in your local dining hall and make sure to stop and take a look when you see it! For more information, please contact Delia Bense-Kang.
