By taking part in the annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, residents can win $5,000 toward theirhome utility payments, water saving fixtures, and hundreds of other prizes. Plus, one lucky charity will receive a 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid to serve the community.
The kickoff press conference will be held at 11:50 AM on April 3rd at the Plano ISD Academy High School located at 1701 Alma Drive.
Joining Mayor LaRosiliere will be renowned marine life artist Wyland, students, and officials from several businesses including Toyota, The Toro Company, Conserva and ECOS.
Last year, residents from more than 4,800 cities in all 50 states pledged to reduce their annual consumption of water by 2.2 billion gallons, reduce waste sent to landfills by 52 million pounds, and prevent more than 114,000 pounds of hazardous waste from entering our watersheds.
To participate, residents enter online at mywaterpldge.com, and then make a series of online pledges to conserve water on behalf of Plano. Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge are entered into drawings for hundreds of eco-friendly prizes.
