April 22 marks Earth Day each year. This year you can help make your home a little more earth-conscious by attending a free water conservation seminar at Home Depot here in Round Rock.
Here’s an announcement about the event: On Saturday, April 26, 2014, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m, The Home Depot will host free Water Conservation Workshops at all of its 1,977 U.S. stores. This is a nationwide effort to educate and empower residents across the country to improve water efficiency inside and outside the home. The announcement of the workshops is one of several measures the company is taking to assist homeowners where many face water restrictions due to current dry conditions.
Workshops will cover water-saving home improvement projects which help conserve the most water, including replacing fixtures with more efficient U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) WaterSense labeled toilets, showerheads, and faucets. Workshops will also include outdoor water-saving options, such as installing drip irrigation, rotary nozzle or dual-spray sprinklers, and WaterSense labeled irrigation controllers. In 2013, customers of The Home Depot saved 42.5 billion gallons of water through the purchase of WaterSense labeled products.
Local community organizations are invited to call their local stores to get involved. Residents are encouraged to attend and learn more about water-efficient solutions they can implement at home. Details and registration information can be found http://workshops.homedepot.com/workshops/home
