Hello Green Action Team!

Welcome to the new Saluki Green Action of the week! Last week we learned that just 1% of the Earth's water is drinkable. However, how many people, in the US alone, have access to this water? 
 
Did You Know: The average water bill in America is $120/month. That number is expected to rise almost $50 in five years. This price hike will make water unaffordable for one-third of the country; that equates to 107.1 million people.

Take Action Now: Using less water when possible and finding ways to reuse your water helps lower your bill plus limits water waste. Install a rain barrel to collect run-off during rainstorms! Click here to learn other methods of collecting unused water, for example from your shower, to reuse later. http://www.care2.com/greenliving/8-ways-to-recycle-water-around-your-house.html
