My Water Pledge
As we recognize Earth Month, we are encouraging all Edmond residents to participate this month in pledging to save water! Please consider taking a moment to participate at mywaterpledge.com.
What is My Water Pledge?
The Wyland Foundation's Annual National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation is held every Earth Month (April 1-30). It is a competition that encourages cities across the nation to see who can be the most water-wise by asking their residents to take a series of informative, easy-to-use online pledges to conserve water, energy, and other natural resources. The non-profit campaign is presented nationally by Toyota and the Wyland Foundation, in association with the National League of Cities, EPA Office of Water, U.S. Forest Service, The Toro Company, Bytelaunch, Inc., Wondergrove Kids, and mayors and water agencies across the country. There are five categories for winning cities. Edmond will be competing in the 30,000 to 99,999 resident category.
How it Works:
- Take the "My Water Pledge" on behalf of Edmond
- See how much you've pledged to save
- Enter the prize drawing to earn prizes
Simply make a series of online commitments at mywaterpledge.com to reduce pollution, water waste, and explore ways to improve the health of their community. Cities with the highest percentage of residents who make pledges are entered to win thousands of dollars in eco-friendly prizes, including a Grand Prize $3,000 toward their Home Utility Bills, Toro home irrigation products, home improvement store gift cards, and more. students from thousands of schools across the country can also make water conservation commitments that directly support their city’s standings – and win prizes for their school.
Encourage Your Friends to Participate:
Custom created social media sharing functions and prize incentives make the Challenge easy for residents and cities to get involved. Once a resident takes the Challenge, they can share with hundreds of their friends and family. Residents can even track their city's standings throughout the month to see if they need to get even more friends and neighbors involved. Everyone is playing to win!
