7GA Personal Climate Action Center Action of the Week!
There is so much work to do to heal our planet that it can feel overwhelming to determine where to start. That’s why 7th Generation Advisors launched the Personal Climate Action Center, a new initiative designed to encourage people to take individual action against climate change.
Need a gift idea for yourself this holiday season? How about installing a smart sprinkler system? It is a gift that will keep on giving by saving you money each month!
What is a smart sprinkler system? A smart sprinkler system creates and adjusts watering schedules optimized for your plants and lawns. You can save up to 50% of your outdoor water use with advanced water saving technologies including weather forecasting and historical statistics. Think of it like a home thermostat, but it reads local weather conditions to determine the most efficient way to water your plants. In fact, the average household can save up to 9,000 gallons of water a year by replacing timer sprinkling systems with EPA partnered WaterSense models.
If you live in California, you’ve probably heard that our reservoirs are at record lows. Soon all Californians may be hit with fines when water is wasted. In addition, certain water districts are implementing their own fines and restrictions . For example, Las Virgenes Municipal Water District has declared a State of Emergency and escalated its Water Shortage Contingency Plan from Stage 2 to Stage 3 – Water Shortage Emergency, which includes cutting outdoor watering budgets by 25%.
At 7th Generation Advisors we
are diligently working with scientists, policymakers, activists and
clean tech companies to create a clean energy economy for all, to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions, and to protect all living things seven
generations into the future. We care about the future of our planet.
