WaterSense® = Water-Saving
There’s been a growing need to conserve water throughout the country, especially with water shortages, droughts in western states, and an increase in the price of water. Conserving water means using our water resources wisely and efficiently to reduce unnecessary water usage, which means less water going down the drain and more water staying in the environment where it nurtures and protects all kinds of life.
To expand efforts at water conservation across the country, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has outlined standards for water-efficient products. Water-saving products that meet these standards earn the WaterSense® stamp of approval, making them easier to identify as consumers.
The EPA’s WaterSense® program is a national partnership with water utilities, manufacturers, retailers, and more, with efforts to support an ethos of water conservation through water-efficient products and practices. The criteria set forth by the EPA must be met and vetted by qualified third-party agencies to become WaterSense® certified.
