The Grey Water Project
Conserving Water Starts With Us

WATER CONSERVATION FOR  KIDS 

The Grey Water Project encourages people to take action and conserve water. Weather you install a grey water system, fix a leak, or just take a shorter shower, every drop counts. This program is relatively simple, but it personifies the phrase "Conserving Water Starts with Us". Elementary school students, as part of their classes, with their families or on their own can choose a water saving action, and try to do it every day (depending on their choice) for six weeks and report it back on my website.To start your journey here's what you do-

Pick one of the activities listed below
Make a plan and follow it for six weeks. 


While you are at it, make a log, take pictures, blog or write a story on what you do
Ask a teacher/ parent to sign that you followed through and took action for six weeks
If you forget a day or two , that's ok but do make a note of it and get back to your plan
Do let us know your progress by communicating us through an email / contact us form
