Resource Central Launches H2Own It Initiative To Tackle Water Scarcity
Resource Central, a nonprofit based in Boulder, has launched H2Own It — a new water conservation initiative to engage thousands of Colorado residents with easy conservation actions and water-wise prizes. The initiative is part of the nonprofit’s Billion Gallon Challenge to help local families conserve one billion gallons of water by 2020.
“Water is a finite and valuable resource, and we can’t afford to waste it,” said Neal Lurie, president of Resource Central. “Colorado’s population is expected to double by 2050, and our water supplies will have a hard time keeping up with population growth without smart conservation strategies. H2Own It empowers families to create lasting changes to help ensure that everyone has enough water for future needs.” The interactive site features quick action items and suggestions, as well as opportunities for families to win water-wise items, including a free high-efficiency toilet and Garden In A Box kit of water-wise plants. The outreach campaign was developed with support from the Walton Family Foundation.
Local Couple Aims to Tackle Plastic Problem
Stardust Sustainables is a new company on a big mission to tackle the plastic bag problem. Matthew Murray and Noura Ismaeil of Boulder, CO launched the company early this year. Their flagship product is a 100% compostable & reusable shopping bag made of organic jute and cotton.
With many cities across the U.S. implementing plastic bag fees or bans, Stardust is stepping up to fill the void of sustainable alternatives available on the market. Their plant-fiber bag is meant to replace traditional reusable bags found in grocery stores that still contain plastics and can’t be recycled.
