Fourteen Years of Saving Water, and It All Started with You
 
"Don't tell us to save water. Show us how."

That was the sentiment of Arizona residents when local cities studied the best messages to use with water conservation outreach. Those were the words behind the internationally recognized brand of the Water - Use It Wisely conservation campaign.
 
This fun, colorful and empowering campaign features "messaging hooks." These include unexpected, but highly effective water-saving devices, like a toothbrush, broom, and irrigation timer. These, and 100+ other devices, remind consumers to think about the water they're using when they come across the items in every-day life. Water-saving device #1 is, of course, you!
 
The "Water - Use It Wisely" campaign was launched in 1999 to promote an ongoing water conservation ethic among Arizona's rapidly growing population. Partners include the cities of Mesa, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Peoria, Chandler, Glendale, Avondale, Surprise, Fountain Hills and Queen Creek. Additional partners include the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association, Global Water Resources, EPCOR Water and Salt River Project.
 
Following Arizona's lead, nearly 400 towns, cities, states, utilities, and private and public organizations have adopted the Water - Use It Wisely campaign, making it one of the largest conservation educational outreach programs in the world.
