Local Non-Profit Dropping Bricks to Fight the Drought

Every Drop CountsPotty humor can help fight the drought – at least if it means people use less water when flushing the toilet. Rising Sun Energy Center, a local nonprofit that provides communities with no-cost water and energy saving services, has teamed up with Project: Drop-A-Brick™ to provide free water displacement devises for toilet tanks. Rising Sun will be handing these water-savers out for free (a savings of $15!) at a workshop co-hosted with the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) in Walnut Creek on October 14.

Drop-A-Bricks save about half a gallon of water per flush, but alone won’t be the solution to the state’s severe drought. Experts from EBMUD and Rising Sun will lead an hour-long workshop to educate the public about additional actions they can take to save water both inside their homes and in their yards. EBMUD will provide free kits with other water-saving measures.

All members of the public are invited to attend the free workshop. Please RSVP to reserve your space by emailing Beth at gunston@risingsunenergy.org

“As the water crisis in California continues to grow, we are looking to deepen our impact at both individual household and city-wide levels. Drop-A-Brick represents a fantastic opportunity for water savings through simple education and the installation of a water saving device,” says Jodi Pincus, Rising Sun’s Executive Director. The public workshop on October 14 will cover additional things that people can do at home to help fight the drought.
