I reported on this pledge last year for Tucsoncitizen.com, and Tucson won first place in our city size (300,000 to 599,999). Currently Tucson is currently in first place again, so please take the pledge by April 30 and if Tucson wins, you could win a prize as well. You can check on Tucson’s standing on the website.
Press release below from City of Tucson:
From April 1 through April 30, you can “pledge for Tucson” in the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation
Just go to mywaterpledge.com using your e-mail or Facebook and complete a brief online survey on the ways you can or do save water and energy.
The Challenge, a friendly competition among U.S. cities, is sponsored by the Wyland Foundation, Toyota, and other partners.
Tucson was #1 in its population category in 2013. A Tucson resident won the national grand prize – a Toyota Prius.
Drawings for all prizes are only from the five winning cities. If Tucson wins and you have pledged and entered the prize drawing, you are eligible for:
Toyota Prius Plug-in (one grand prize)
$1000 Shopping Spree at a Home Improvement Store
50 Smart Irrigation Controllers from The Toro Company
40 EcoFlow Showerheads
250 Home Improvement Store Gift Cards ($25 value)
The Wyland Foundation has added a classroom edition of My Water Pledge atmywaterpledge.com/campaign/kids-campaign-2014 to encourage parents to take the pledge with their kids.
Tucson Water’s web page at tucsonaz.gov/water/challenge has background information, videos, and a recap of 2013.
