The Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program is the EPA’s water efficiency equivalent to its wildly successful and well-known Energy Star program. Watersense’s mission is to protect the future of the U.S. water supply by promoting and enhancing the market for water-efficient products and services.

WaterSense has jumped onto the internet “widget” bandwagon, and recently released a widget that provides a jump to the WaterSense website, which includes tips and facts about water efficiency. The widgets provided by WaterSense are intended to be seasonal and up-to-date, encouraging webmasters and website owners to add environmental content to their website or Myspace page. The website intends to update and change its content on a monthly  basis.

Information provided by WaterSense on their website includes:

  • Fixing water leaks at home;
  • Reducing water use in the shower;
  • Using water-efficient toilets; and
  • How to water your lawn efficiently.
