>Youngsters Enjoyed Learning About Water Conservation Efforts!


Linda Staunch and the “Less Means More” committee hosted their annual water conservation initiative and interesting educational week for over 500 local 5th graders!

The committee set up exhibits to teach our future leaders the importance of water quality, water use indoors, water use outdoors, water systems, and recycling.

While observing Bobbi Waters at the Coastal Environmental Partnership’s exhibit, she asked the students “what worries you”? A couple responses were, “there will be more trash” and “air pollution”. These young adults were truly concerned about our environment.

Students asked about recycling and Bobbi explained the triangular shape with three arrows. The first arrow represents collecting recyclables, the second arrow – change recyclables into something else, and the third arrow – you’re not recycling until you buy recycled items. That completes the triangle.

Special thanks to all who were involved in the water conservation week! Hopefully your efforts will make a difference for future generations.
