Take the 40 Gallon Challenge
Across the southern United States individuals are being encouraged to take the 40 Gallon Challenge. The 40 Gallon Challenge is a regional campaign that challenges residents to conserve at least 40 gallons of water per day.
On average, Texans use anywhere between 100 to 150 gallons of water per person per day. The 40 Gallon Challenge Pledge Card suggests practical tips to conserve water including simple no-cost suggestions, such as shortening your shower by two minutes, to tips which require more effort and money, such as replacing an old, non-efficient toilet with a new low-flush toilet.
Taking the 40 Gallon Challenge is as simple as filling out the Pledge Card either online at 40gallonchallenge.org or at your local Extension office.
