Spartanburg Water encourages conservation by choosing tap during Earth Day festivities

May 14, 2019.

In celebration of one of Earth’s greatest gifts – water – Spartanburg Water spent Saturday, May 4, encouraging people to “choose tap” during this year’s Spartanburg Earth Day Festival. 

Founded in 1970 by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, April 22 marked 49 years since the birth of Earth Day.  Today, millions of people around the world celebrate Earth Day, championing change in human behavior and policies to better protect the Earth and its resources.

The festival, held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg, brought our community together to inspire participation in caring for our planet. 

To do its part, Spartanburg Water served up ice cold water and encouraged our neighbors to drink local and turn to their taps for clean, quality drinking water.  It will not only save you money; it will also save our environment. 

As part of our effort to reduce our water footprint, Spartanburg Water also gave away re-useable, BPA-free water bottles to over 100 people during the festival.

Families enjoyed food trucks, music, art and hands-on activities while learning about the sustainability of our water supply and our planet. 

“Earth is what we all have in common.”
-Wendell Berry
