I grew up in a water conscious family. My grandmother collected rain water and washing machine run off to water her garden. My uncle was a stickler about taking shorter showers and turning off the faucet whenever possible. They were doing this before it was trendy, before the campaigns. I believe this mentality of resource conservation is part of what led me to environmental studies.

We are a faction of the Education for Sustainable Living Program (ESLP) that will produce simulated water bills that will inform and educate on-campus apartment residents at UC Santa Cruz about their monthly water use and will encourage smarter water-use and conservation through a reduction competition.
