At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Minneapolis, we, along with our sister brand Conserva Irrigation believe strongly in the responsible use of our natural resources. While we deploy energy saving LED landscape lighting, Conserva works diligently to help businesses and homeowners lower their water use by improving the efficiency of their irrigation systems. They also work closely with the Wyland Foundation, an organization dedicated to “promoting, protecting, and preserving the world’s ocean, waterways, and marine life,” for broader water conservation efforts.
Andover Wins 2016 National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation
Last year, Conserva worked with students at Andover High School during the Wyland Foundation’s National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation contest. Putting it in the hands of students, Conserva challenged the students to gain as much community participation as possible. In their very first effort, Andover with support from Mayor Julie Trude won the contest for cities in the 30,000-99,999 range!
Water Conservation in Minnesota
We are excited to see what this year brings as the Wyland Foundation prepares to launch the contest on April 1st-30th. We hope that our LED outdoor lighting customers can take this to their communities to spread the word about water conservation. With water being such a vital part of our landscape in Minneapolis, we hope to make a local win an annual tradition.
This year you can help your city win by pledging your support at http://www.mywaterpledge.
