Water Conservation Campaign and Reporting Leaks + Faucets without Aerators

August 5 2016

The C02e reduction due to water conservation was based on the energy it takes to deliver the water and treat the water from the school faucets. Reduction of water use was based on students turning off the faucet (water) while they were washing their hands. This action translates to energy saved and CO2e reduced.


1. Students performed energy, water and waste assessments of their classroom.
2. Students created and posted signage reminding fellow students to turn off lights, put electronics to sleep, turn faucets off while in use, recycle, and compost.
3. Students implemented an organics collection (compost) bin into their classroom.
4. Students reported leaks and faucets without aerators to campus custodian.   
5. Students reviewed actions taken in school with one another and celebrated those actions taken during Earth Day.
