Saving water in your community
sponsored by CCWater
Water Saving Week is all about saving water, and to wrap up the week, on Friday 23rd March, we'll be talking about saving water in your community.
'Saving water in your community' day is sponsored by the Consumer Council for Water. Also known as the Water Watchdog, CCWater supports thousands of customers with complaints and provides free advice and support on every aspect of their water and sewerage services.
Top tip: It takes 13 litres to produce 1 litre of petrol. Using your legs/public transport when travelling around your local community will save water, energy and money.
