Subject: Week 4 Water Reduction Challenge



We hope you had a great Earth week and were able to celebrate by learning about how to reduce your daily water consumption! How is the challenge going? You only have one more week left—congrats! We have enjoyed seeing you all continue to track your water consumption and become more conscious of your water footprint. If you have not already done so, please submit your Week 3 Google Form with an uploaded point grid by Tuesday, April 26th. 


This week, reflect on the positive changes you have made in your life and think about how you can continue to take these steps after the challenge is done. While Earth Month and this challenge may be ending soon, that doesn’t mean you should stop conserving water! We hope that some of your positive actions have turned into habits so you can continue with them in the future. Read some final tips in this week’s attached tips document and learn about the importance of educating others about water reduction and other sustainability topics. 


Continue to keep track of your points for the final week of the challenge and submit your Week 4 Google Form and grid (attached) by Tuesday, May 2nd. As a reminder, you can join or start tracking your water even this late in the month. For each submission at the end of the week, you’ll be entered into a raffle for sustainability prizes! 


There are still several more events to celebrate Earth Month coming up this week! Come to iSEE, F&S, and the Illini Union Board’s trash pick up this Friday, April 29th. Volunteers will meet at Alma Mater at 3pm, and bags will be provided. Afterward, the final Illini Lights Out event of the semester will be at 5:30 pm in the Foreign Language Building lobby! Sign up here.


As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or would like to share how the challenge is going for you, please email us. We hope that Week 4 goes well for you, and keep up the great work!
