New Videos on the “Save Our Water” YouTube Channel
Marina Shoupe, a student in the MFA program at San Francisco State University , created a short documentary about an 85-year-old woman and her water saving practices called “Wet.”
Marina has agreed to let us use her video to help spread the word about water conservation in hopes that the video can inspire individuals to make small changes in their everyday habits to help conserve water.
Also up on the “Save Our Water” YouTube Channel is a video from the 8th Annual Get Wet Event. This year Save Our Water teamed up with Radio Disney to provide some interactive water conservation fun for the kids.
You can check out both videos on the “Save Our Water” YouTube Channel here.
The “Save Our Water” public education program is a partnership between the Association of California Water Agencies and the Department of Water Resources. Patterned after the successful “Flex Your Power” public education program for energy campaign, the “Save Our Water” campaign focuses on educating consumers and achieving real changes in consumer behavior.
