Stickers are a great way to get your message across and The Ecology Center are giving away stickers, emblazoned with One Less Plastic Bottle, to encourage people to ditch disposable water bottles in favour of re-usable glass bottles.
With World Water Day coming up on March 22, The Ecology Center’s The Water Effect campaign sets out to “inspire ripples of change” through simple solutions such as grabbing a glass water bottle, stamping a sticker on it, and inspiring others around you to join the movement.
The southern-California based, The Ecology Center say: “Your new sticker will be a constant reminder that you’re making a difference every time you fill up your water bottle.
“When you ditch disposable water bottles, you’re actually saving water. Every 20 oz packaged water bottle takes 6x the volume of the bottle to manufacture and transport. In other words, you save one gallon of water every time you use your reusable bottle. Simple solutions really do make big change.”
According to research, the average American uses 1,800 gallons of water per day. That’s twice the global sustainable average. This is more than just the water used to drink, to shower, to brush teeth, and to wash dishes. The Ecology Center, who refer to our “water footprint, say that most of the water consumed is invisible.
The Water Effect campaign sets out to make people aware of their relationship to water through the stuff we buy, the food we eat and the water we use at home.
The Ecology Center is a non-profit eco-education center based in San Juan Capistrano, California. The organisation is focused on creative solutions for thriving on planet Earth. In addition to The Water Effect campaign, The Ecology Center also runs initiatives for growing your own at school and home; supporting local artisan culture; and a Community Table Accord whereby the Center hosts dinner parties to break bread with intention and rejuvenate local communities by supporting those who grow, source, and cook sustainably.
