EPA names Home Depot the 2013 WaterSense Retail Partner of the Year!

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized The Home Depot with a 2013 WaterSense® Retail Partner of the Year award.

The Home Depot was honored during the WaterSmart Innovations Conference for its commitment to water efficiency and outstanding efforts to support the WaterSense program during 2012.

In 2012 alone, The Home Depot helped customers save more than 35.5 billion gallons of water and over $259 million in water utility bills through the sale of WaterSense-labeled products.

Upgrading to WaterSense®

Simply turning off your tap when brushing your teeth can save as much as 3,000 gallons of water per year.

You can conserve even more by installing WaterSense® labeled bathroom sink faucets or faucets accessories. Doing so, an average household can reduce its water consumption by 500 gallons each year.
