Wessex Water is backing a national week long campaign to promote simple water saving tips for the home, garden, schools, workplace and communities.
The company is supporting Waterwise and WaterSafe for Water Saving Week, which runs next week (21st to 25th March 2016).
The campaign aims to raise awareness of the need for everyone to use water wisely – whatever the weather and wherever the location.
The campaign will see five themes across the week, all with daily challenges and water saving tips. These include “water in school”, “water in your workplace” and “water in your home”.
For homes, schools and businesses which are on a water meter and pay for the amount of water they use, this can also mean welcome savings on water and energy bills.
And as the campaign coincides with Easter – the traditional time of year gardeners start thinking about this season’s planting and families get out and about – other themes include “water in the garden” and “water in the community”.
Eve Atkins, water efficiency and demand analyst at Wessex Water, said: “Many of our customers are surprised to discover how much water can be wasted from simple, day-to-day activities around the home and garden.
“Yet the reality is that it is really easy to save water and we have some great tips and free water saving devices to help customers save even more.
“For customers on a meter, they can save money by saving water and even for those customers who aren’t on a meter savings could be made on their energy bill.”
Jacob Tompkins, managing director of Waterwise, said: “We’re building on the success of last year’s launch campaign with an exciting range of activities to raise awareness about the need to save water and share simple ideas and tips to help everyone do their bit.
“We’re also delighted that WaterSafe – the water industry-backed plumber accreditation scheme – has become an official partner of Water Saving Week, as there is clearly a strong link with plumbers who share advice with customers at home or work every day.”
