Go Dirty for the Drought, October 12

In January 2014, Governor Brown announced a State of Emergency: California is having the worst drought in recorded history. Nine months later, Los Angeles has not decreased water use, and Angelinos are still using 122-129 gallons of water per day. We must spread the word about the severity of the drought and do our part to conserve water. 
Stop by the Green Tent this Sunday between 9:30 and 1:00 and sign the pledge to Go dirty for the drought by not washing your car for 60 days. You can also sign the pledge online; click here to access the website. 
When you take the Dirty Car Pledge to conserve water for LA, you'll receive a Dirty Car Pledge sticker to put in your car window and help spread the wordIt’s a static cling sticker, so it won’t ruin your car paint.
Not washing your car for 60 day saves time, saves money and, most importantly, saves water. And the car sticker will save your image as well.
A Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase  volunteer will also be at the Green Tent from 9:00 till 2:00. Sustainable gardens are long term water savers. The Green Garden Showcase is dedicated to encouraging them to sprout throughout Mar Vista. Would you like to be a garden scout? Are you interested in showing your garden in the 2015 tour? Do you have questions about converting to a drought tolerant garden? Stop by and chat.
