Water Guide: Garbage in the Ocean

Not only does Walnut Creek Saves promote water and energy savings in your homes, but we spread awareness about water and energy saving measures used around the world. We help residents learn about fossil fuels, recycling, and pollution. In today’s day and age, Americans create, on average, four and a half pounds of garbage each day. Recycling and waste management companies rid our homes of this waste, but for all garbage that doesn’t end up in landfills, they end up as litter on roads and in the ocean.

Conserve Away!

Ever since Walnut Creek Saves started we have been targeting Walnut Creek residents’ water and energy use. However, recently, we decided to target other aspects of conservation like composting and recycling. For the month of March, we decided to focus on the topic of sustainable gardens. Michelle Lee, a student Conservation Coach for Walnut Creek Saves, shares all about how we plan to spread information about sustainable gardening!
