Tips to Conserve Water in the Summer Months

May 22nd, 2021 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Tips to Conserve Water in the Summer Months”

By Johanna

As Californians, we look forward to the sunny months of summer and all the exciting activities that follow along. But with the fun comes the unwavering heat.

With summer temperatures often reaching the triple digits, our delicate water sources inevitably experience even higher demand than they do during cooler times of the year. This effect is exacerbated when the region gets fickle rain showers.

California is currently facing its second major drought within a decade. It is important for the state’s residents to come together to help tackle the current drought emergency and try to be more effective with our water usage.

Here are some simple ways everyone can try around their home to help with water conservation amid drought conditions:

 

Conserve Water When Watering Your Lawn and Garden

water-conservation-lawn-and-garden

Make sure to water your lawn and garden only when needed, not daily. When watering lawns, it is better to do deep soaks during cooler parts of the day.

 

The State of Your Water is in danger. Support us today so that we may continue to advocate for water conservation and for the sustainability of our oceans.

Turn Off the Water When it is Not Needed

water-conservation-daily-hygiene

Easy ways to save water around the house include turning off the faucet when brushing your teeth, not leaving the hose running when washing your car, and even being more aware of how long the faucet is on while manually washing dishes.

Be Efficient with Washing Machines

water-conservation-with-washing-machines

Using your washing machines and dishwashers with full loads saves water and can also help you save on your energy bills.

Take Shorter Showers

water-conservation-when-showering

Try using a timer to make sure showers are short and efficient. Switching to low-flow showerheads helps save water and can help save money.

 

The State of Your Water is in danger. Support us today so that we may continue to advocate for water conservation and for the sustainability of our oceans.

Reduce Food Waste

water-conservation-for-food-production

Food production is a huge source of water usage and shopping smart and reducing food waste is a subtle way to contribute to efficient water usage.

 

Plant California-friendly Plants and Trees in Your Garden

water-conservation-drought-resistant-gardens

Replace thirsty vegetation with native plants that are more drought-resistant and can live off the low levels of rainfall.

 

Fix Any Leaks in Your Home

water-conservation-fix-leaks

Water leaks in your home can waste thousands of gallons of water a year, hurting the region’s water supplies and the consumer’s wallet.

INDUSTRY NEWS: PADDLE WISE CAMPAIGN BY NRS AND AMERICAN WHITEWATER

May 20th, 2021 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “INDUSTRY NEWS: PADDLE WISE CAMPAIGN BY NRS AND AMERICAN WHITEWATER”

NRS and American Whitewater have launched a new campaign called Paddle Wise. Paddle Wise aims to educate and inform those new to the sport of outdoor paddling to help maintain a clean and healthy wilderness for us to keep exploring as paddlers.

“As paddlers, it is up to all of us to protect the places where we play, limit our impact, stay safe and promote a positive image of our sport. Many people new to the outdoors are unfamiliar with the ethics practiced by more experienced river users, and increased outdoor participation has put greater pressure on our public lands and waters. As an industry, and individuals, we need to be proactive about teaching these folks the importance of keeping our rivers clean, healthy and accessible to everyone.“

You can download the above flyer from the Paddle Wise website to help spread the word on social media.
