Last week a local shop owner won the conservation award of the month at Clay and Limestone.
Here's her story.
She lives on the Cumberland River in a house that is not connected to city water, nor does she have a well. Instead, she uses rain water that is collected from roof runoff into her cistern for non-potable household use.* When she showers, she has a bucket that catches the shower water. That water is then used first to wash the floors before it is finally used to water her potted plants.
Now that's conservation with a capital C. Have you run into a neighbor or a friend who is a 3-R practioner?
Enjoy the Fourth and be safe out there.
