Water Saving Week enters second year
16 April 2010
Business leaders across the UK are being urged to reduce their impact on the environment by getting involved with WATER SAVING WEEK 2010. Water Saving Week 2010, which is a DEFRA-backed nationwide campaign, highlights awareness of water waste both in the workplace and in domestic environments.
Now in its second year, the theme of this year’s Water Saving Week – which will be held from the 12th -18th June 2010 - is: ‘3 reasons to save water = Save Energy, Save Money, Be Green’. Supported by regulators, trade associations, industry and government-funded business support organisations, the objective of Water Saving Week is to create a real focus on issues relating to water efficiency.
Businesses are encouraged to get involved with Water Saving Week by visiting the website where a pledge to save water can be made. Water Saving Week’s organisers are also encouraging business leaders and owners to engage with staff, customers and suppliers to visit the website too, where an individual or corporate water-saving pledge can be made.
Shawn Coles, the founder of the not-for-profit Water Saving Week initiative comments, “Climate change, the greenhouse effect and global warming are now on everyone’s agenda. However water saving has not had the attention it deserves. Businesses of all types and sizes use water and it is crucial that they think about ways of reducing their impact on the environment through practical and sustainable measures. We believe Water Saving Week is a perfect opportunity to do this.”
