World Water Week has past but the issues ALWAYS remain. Here is an infographic that examines the importance of creating sustainable communities. This visual resource, created by Norwich University’s Online Masters in Public Administration program.
It first explains sustainability. A term which, as of late, has become a bit of a vague catchword. So then details both the importance and financial plausibility of creating sustainable communities.
For example, more than 80 Connecticut organizations, businesses and green leaders are involved in a new campaign. One campaign to connect green initiatives and their supporters. That’s in and across every city and town in Connecticut. The Connecticut Campaign for Creating Sustainable Communities is spearheaded by Fairfield-based GreenTowns.com.
It aims to be creating sustainable communities through the leaders. They are the mayors, green businesses, non-profits and local citizens. All who want to work together to build awareness and support each other in the “greening” of Connecticut.
As I’ve written before , the average American family uses 400 gallons of water a day. In addition, there are a number of things families can do to reduce water.
For example, keeping a pitcher of cold water in the fridge instead of running the water. Running it until cold water hits the tap. Another option could also be replacing your home’s older toilets to more water efficient toilets. In conclusion, we did that here folks!
