JRGBC Talks WaterSense, Water Conservation Products
Every drop counts when it comes to conserving water, and there are several ways to do it without sacrificing money or convenience. That was the message to members of the James River Green Building Council during a luncheon at CitySpace Tuesday.
They heard a presentation about WaterSense, an Environmental Protection Agency program that promotes water-efficient products. When plumbing hardware products like toilets and faucets have a WaterSense label, it means they use at least 20 percent less water than other products on the market.
Kate Bailey with Ferguson Enterprises, which sells WaterSense products, said, "Water is one of our most valuable natural resources and there are some very easy and inexpensive ways that we can conserve water, and sometimes you just need to know what they are to be able to implement them."
Those who sell WaterSense products say the items look the same, perform the same, and are similarly priced, but can save lots of water in the long run.
