I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you who signed up and had a water saving visit this year. Your enthusiasm and positivity towards the project have meant it has been a real success!
Water is a precious resource, and it is important that we reduce the amount of water we are wasting wherever possible. Your commitment to saving water and participating in this project has helped us do just that.
You are now saving water, saving energy and helping us to reduce our impact on our outstanding natural environment.
Together 2,779 of you took part saving over 1,380 bathtubs full of water a day.
In total 20,249 water and energy saving products are now in homes across Barking including:
- 1,957 water saving shower heads,
- 970 water butts for the garden, and
- 1,376 tap aerators for kitchen and bathroom taps
We also managed to repair 92 leaking toilets and 71 leaking taps for free saving customers the worry of getting it repaired themselves.
I hope you all continue to think about the tips and hints provided at the visits to help you save water, energy and money.
