We are working with South East Water and Southern Water again this year on a water saving campaign targeting lower income householders with postcards encouraging residents to sign up for water saving audits or devices and a wider social media campaign to encourage and model water saving actions in homes and gardens. The social media campaign includes a competition to nominate Kent schools to win a water butt and was launched on our webpage www.kent.gov.uk/savewater and Kent Green Action social media channels (Facebook or Twitter) this week.
Please share with your networks and encourage your audiences to nominate their schools for the chance to win a water butt.

Our water saving campaign #MakeEveryDropCount provides water saving tips to help people save water, energy and money, whilst protecting local rivers and wildlife.
The recent heatwave caused demand for water to soar and climate change will bring increasingly drier winters and hotter summers to the UK.
Even simple actions can add up to huge water savings across the county; turning taps off while you lather up or brush your teeth, taking a slightly shorter shower, collecting rainwater to water plants. If everyone in Kent saved just 2 litres of water each day, there would be one billion more litres of water available in our rivers and groundwater for wildlife every year!
