Did you know that less than one percent of the Earth’s water is available for human use? In celebration of World Water Day, March 22, Breckenridge Grand Vacations invites you to participate in a few water-conserving habits.
- One of the biggest actions you can take to help conserve water is to install a WaterSense toilet. The EPA estimates that a home’s main source of water use comes from toilets, which account for nearly 30 percent of a home’s water consumption! By replacing an old inefficient toilet with a WaterSense one, you can save 20 to 60 percent in water consumption or over 10,000 gallons a year!
- Another way you can help conserve water is simply turning off your tap when you brush your teeth. This simple action can save up to eight gallons of water a day and over 200 gallons per month!
- Last, on your next Grand vacation in Breckenridge, sign up for your resort’s Sustainable Stay program. This resource conservation program invites all guests to participate in Breckenridge Grand Vacations conservation efforts. One green habit guests will practice is towel reuse. By reusing towels, guests will help conserve water by reducing the amount of linens that are sent to the laundry.
Bonus Sustainable Stay tip: Be sure you visit your resort’s EZH2O water refill station as well! These stations do more than conserve water, they fill your water bottles three times faster than a traditional drinking fountain and reduce the number of plastic water bottles that end up in the landfill.
