Slow the Flow for Healthful Schools
Kennedy, Mike
American School & University, v83 n9 p32-35 May 2011
One constant found in almost every education facility, in addition to students and teachers, is the school washroom. Every day, millions of students, staff members and visitors use school washrooms and in the process consume millions of gallons of water. For students concerned about conserving resources and for educators committed to teaching students about the value of conservation, the school washroom is an area brimming with opportunities. This article discusses how schools and universities can take advantage of more-efficient fixtures and equipment, and step up their maintenance efforts to reduce the consumption of water in their facilities' washrooms. Conservation efforts not only can help students learn to be more aware of their environment, but also provide cost savings through lower utility bills.
