be water wise
Keep Pain Out of the Drain
Clean rivers, lakes, and oceans are important for healthy wildlife (and humans). Help protect our planet's water sources: don't dump car oil, paint, or other toxic chemicals in the sink. Check with your local government for a safer way to dispose of hazardous waste.
Before you toss an empty toilet paper tube in the recycle bin, think of a way you could use it again. How clever can you be? And that goes for jars, cans, and boxes. For example, you can turn an empty oatmeal can into a special place to store your treasures.
Offer a Wet Welcome
Local wildlife will appreciate a container of water on your balcony or in your yard. But bees can drown in a bowl of water, so set up a bee-bar using a plate or shallow bowl filled with stones or marbles.
