My Water Pledge
As we recognize Earth Day, we are encouraging all Edmond residents to participate this month in pledging to save water! Please consider taking a moment to participate at mywaterpledge.com.
What is My Water Pledge?
The Wyland Foundation's Annual National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation is held every Earth Month (April 1-30). It is a competition that encourages cities across the nation to see who can be the most water-wise by asking their residents to take a series of informative, easy-to-use online pledges to conserve water, energy, and other natural resources. The non-profit campaign is presented nationally by Toyota and the Wyland Foundation, in association with the National League of Cities, EPA Office of Water, U.S. Forest Service, The Toro Company, Bytelaunch, Inc., Wondergrove Kids, and mayors and water agencies across the country. There are five categories for winning cities. Edmond will be competing in the 30,000 to 99,999 resident category.
How it Works:
- Take the "My Water Pledge" on behalf of Edmond
- See how much you've pledged to save
- Enter the prize drawing to earn prizes
Simply make a series of online commitments at mywaterpledge.com to reduce pollution, water waste, and explore ways to improve the health of their community. Cities with the highest percentage of residents who make pledges are entered to win thousands of dollars in eco-friendly prizes, including a Grand Prize $3,000 toward their Home Utility Bills, Toro home irrigation products, home improvement store gift cards, and more! Participants can also nominate a deserving charity in town to win a Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
Encourage Your Friends to Participate:
There are Daily Drawing Winners in this competition. Once you have completed your water pledge, you will receive a code to share with your friends to take the challenge. If your friend completes the challenge, you'll be entered into a daily prize drawing. If you get 100 friends to take the pledge, you have 100 chances to win!
