We all know that California is facing a major drought situation1. Energy prices have been increasing for a long time, and are expected to continue to do so. None of that is news.
But there’s a way you can save money, save resources and demonstrate your commitment to more sustainable living. While earning kudos for San Carlos on the national stage. Now that’s news!
Here’s how. Take part in the Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, sponsored by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota. Supported by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Water, the National League of Cities, the U.S. Forest Service, and others, it’s a fun water use, energy use, and pollution reduction competition between cities. If San Carlos comes out on top, residents who take the pledge will be eligible for a number of cool prizes, including a grand prize, a Toyota Prius Plug-in2.
Let’s show the nation how environmentally-conscious San Carlos really is!
As of 8:25 PM on Wednesday evening we’re currently ranked #6 in the nation among cities in our size category.
