In schools - for students
Thanks to “Me to We,” and other similar campaigns, you are making a difference — improving our community and our world. Your enthusiasm is even propelling adults to change their behaviours. Right now, the Okanagan's water needs your help!
Become your school's water protector
Turn the tap off while soaping your hands.
Bring a water bottle to school. At the end of the day, pour any left-over water onto plants.
Check for leaking taps, water fountains or toilets on a regular basis. Encourage any leaks to be fixed as soon as possible. In the meantime, place ice cream containers under leaks to capture the water and use for watering plants, gardens, etc.
Encourage your school to install aerators on taps to reduce water flow through taps.
Start a gardening club. Plant a garden. Use the produce as healthy snacks in school!
Install rain barrels and other containers to catch rainwater. Use the water for watering your school garden.
