Think about your water usage for a moment.
In the last two billion years, the amount of water on Earth has not changed.
Yet in the last century, water usage has increased at twice the rate of
the world population.
In the United States alone, over 6.8 billion gallons of water is flushed
down the toilet every day.
More than half our states anticipate a shortage of fresh water by the year 2020.
So what can we do now? That’s what many of today’s plumbing
companies are asking. How can we help consumers reduce the amount of water
they are using every day, and begin to take the concept of being green
to another level.
One answer is joining organizations like GreenPlumbersUSA. With specialized
training, a plumber can become specialized in the tools necessary to go
green. Each training program offers the resources necessary to learn more
about products and services available on the market today, and the skills
and knowledge to put the information to work throughout our communities.
