H2Oscore and the State of the River

We were honored to find out recently that we’d been selected by H2Oscore last month as the winner in the Professional Writers category of their sustainability blog competition The Water Centric City. We are deeply appreciative of this honor, and are especially pleased that it will help spread the word about the recent “State of the River” report, and will encourage yet more people to think about that report, what it means.

Much of our work is hinged on the call “What would we have to do to live as if the river at our heart really mattered?”, this honor is as much for that call as for any work we have done, and begs the question “What more can we do?”

One thing is clear and involves not looking any farther than H20score itself.  The project aims to assist water consumers in analyzing and optimizing their water use through education, and analysis of, among other things, utility bills.  Being thoughtful about water is an essential step in protecting the water we have, and the urban systems that depend upon it.

Whether or not you use an online tool to measure your water usage, or another method, how do you live as if rivers matter?
