GASAN partners with Greccio Housing April 03 2013
Today, Give a Shit about Nature donated 216 .5 Gallon Per Minute faucet aerators to Greccio Housing, a nonprofit agency established to provide affordable rental housing for low to moderate income residents of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
In Colorado Springs, where Give a Shit about Nature is headquartered, Stage II water restrictions went into effect on April 1st. This not only restricts the days and times citizens can water outdoors, but it also comes with an increase in the cost of water. In a slow to recover economy, an increase in the utility bill of a low income family can have profound effects. GASAN donated these aerators to Greccio to drive down the cost of water for their clients, which will assist their financial stability now and in the future.
It is difficult to estimate exactly, but this donation should conserve roughly 750,000 gallons of water a year, translating to $2,000 saved annually for Greccio and their clients.
Not only do I plant trees for every order I receive, but I will continue to do my best to promote sustainability in my community, as well as communities across the globe. Consider buying a shirt or a showerhead to help me continue this kind of work.
