For the first time ever, the City of Lansing participated in the ninth annual Mayor's Water Challenge for Conservation, a national non-profit community service program that was jointly presented by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota, in addition to many others. The program is a competition that challenges residents and city personnel to see who can conserve the most amount of natural resources, such as water, in comparison to particpating cities across the country.
Participation was based on residents taking a pledge to committ to living more sustainably and then ethically abiding by that choice.
This year, the challenge ran from August 1st to August 31st. Winning cities, which will be announced at the end of September, and a summary of the challenge can be found at www.mywaterpledge.com.
Thank you to all of those who participated in the challenge! The City looks forward to participating in the years to come.
