Why Partner With WaterSense?
Water. It's in high demand and short supply in
many markets. Faced with population increase,
supply issues, aging infrastructure, climate
change, and consumer waste, you know it's
time to amplify your water efficiency outreach
Using water more efficiently
makes sense for consumers,
communities, and the envi-
ronment. Water efficiency
measures, as part of broader
conservation efforts, can
help reduce water and
wastewater infrastructure costs and conserve
resources for future generations.
WaterSense understands these goals. That's why
EPA developed a credible, national brand with a
strong and consistent water efficiency message.
Working together, we can promote the value of
water and help consumers and organizations
make smart choices regarding water use and
water-using products.
"WaterSense adds consistency with
products, messaging, and marketing and
provides utilities with identical criteria to
ensure a clear and concise message is
conveyed to customers/'
