Cut and Dry: Stop Wasting Water

Cut and Dry: Stop Wasting Water | Recycling News Channel | OrganicStream.org | Scoop.it

"A poll released earlier this month by the Los Angeles Times showed that while nearly 90% of the over 1,500 registered voters who were surveyed agreed that water shortage was a “Crisis/major problem”, 82% felt it had a minor or no impact on their daily lives."

The Organic Stream's insight:

This article provides some insight into human behaviour and shows clearly that changing habits and mindsets requires much more work than simply raising awareness of an issue. It remains clear that public outreach and education is crucial in order to make a real impact:


“We think that everything that we and other water utilities in California should be focusing on at this point is public education to change human behavior; to educate the public on how serious of a crisis this could be.”


We at Compostory agree. For more insights, check out our interview with Robert Reed of Recology talking about building compost & water saving awareness campaigns in Californian cities.
