Water is awesome!
It cools us. It calms us. It keeps us alive.
One thing water isn't?
Something we can keep taking for granted.

In Southern California, water is a scarce and sacred
resource, because we basically live in a desert.
We're now in the 3rd year of a historic drought,
and it's damn scary, but we don't have to feel powerless.

H2No is a rally cry for water conservation, and against water waste.
H2No is about all the things water isn't (ornamental, abundant),
and a celebration of all the things it is.
H2No is a movement you can join, right now, by pledging to
change your own behavior.

Let's do this, SoCal!

Are you still seeing water waste in your neighborhood? Yes it's sad, yes it's frustrating, but you can try to change behaviors by sharing knowledge in a positive way.

We've created simple tools you can share with your neighbors, custom-tailored to support three different levels of what we'll call "Neighbor Love Levels."


LEVEL ONE: "I don't really know my neighbors, but I'm sure they're great!"
Download a simple one-sheet and share it with every house on your block. Some people genuinely don't know the rules about water usage, so you're saving them a $500 fine from the DWP!**


LEVEL TWO: "I know my neighbors, but I still feel a bit awkward talking to them about water conservation."
Download, print, and share this fun hang-tag on your neighbors door to give them a lil' nudge towards saving water.**


LEVEL THREE: My neighbors and I are BFFs! I can talk to them about anything!
We have a limited supply of H2No lawn signs. Email us and we'll send you one while we have them.


**Please print on recycled paper if you can!**

**Did we leave an H2No sign on your lawn? If you don't want this sign, please share it with someone who does. You can also email us and we'll come get it from you for free!**

I Own My Home:

a. Choose Drought-Friendly Plants!
Pick plants that naturally thrive in So Cal's climate, such as cacti, succulents, sage, warm weather grasses, and more!


b. Upgrade Your Sprinklers!
Having the right sprinklers makes a world of difference. Our friends at Save Our H2O have tons of info for you.


c. Mow It High!
Mowing your lawn higher is the way to go during a drought. It helps reduce growth rate, which lessens your water demands.


d. Turf Removal - There's Cash In Your Lawn!
The DWP offers a $3 // sq ft rebate if you remove your lawn. Get started today!


I Rent My Home:

Renters have a voice too! And the math adds up too — it makes long-term economic sense for your landlord to steer their properties towards water conservation.

Share this simple one-sheet with your landlord. You can mail it in with your rent check, and follow up with a phone call!
