Save Water, Win Prizes

Updated Apr 15, 2013

Rain Bird will be supporting the National Mayor’s Challenge For Water Conservation, a non-profit competition to see which city leaders can best inspire their residents to make online pledges aimed at drastically slashing water and energy use across the nation throughout the month of April, which is also Earth Month.

As a program partner, Rain Bird joins The Wyland Foundation, Toyota, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National League of Cities, Lowe’s home improvement stores, the U.S. Forest Service and CH2M Hill Watermatch, in a nationwide effort to urge mayors to challenge each other’s cities and encourage residents to conserve water, save energy and reduce pollution.

As part of the challenge, the public is being asked to visit, enter the name of their city and make a water-saving pledge on behalf of their city before April 30.

The challenge divides cities into five population categories: 5,000 – 30,000 residents, 30,000 – 100,000 residents, 100,000 – 300,000 residents, 300,000 – 600,000 residents and cities with more than 600,000 residents. One winning city will be determined in each of the five population categories.

Participants have the chance to win hundreds of environmentally friendly prizes, including a Toyota Prius c, custom-designed Rain Bird irrigation systems and a $1,000 Lowe’s shopping spree. Mayors from many of America’s greatest cities, including Los Angeles, Denver, Tucson, Seattle, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C., have joined the effort to encourage their residents to make a difference for water conservation.

Last year, residents from 1,000 cities in all 50 states made online pledges to save a total of 4.7 billion gallons of water over the next year, with a potential cost savings of $11.6 million. Residents further pledged to reduce their use of single-use plastic water bottles by 1.1 million bottles and eliminate 60,000 pounds of hazardous waste from entering watersheds.
