Kids get it; why can’t our water leaders? My granddaughter asked me to talk to her 5th grade class about water conservation and other environmental issues. The thank you letters I received after my visit were very instructive.
“I learned a pretty good deal of things. I will, from now on, take shorter showers.”
“I was so surprised by how much water we use in one week. I learned that we need to be more careful when we use water.”
“I learned about how much water I have been wasting so from now on I will use much less water.”
And finally, this comment: “I learned a little goes a long way.”
Sage advice from 5th graders. Too bad many of our water leaders haven’t gotten the message.
