August 22, 2022
World Water Week 2022

Whether you’re replacing an inefficient fixture with a more effective product or adopting water-efficient behaviors, we can all take action to save water for future generations. We’re for Water was created by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a national campaign to help consumers save water. The Home Depot is proud to partner with WaterSense to promote the manufacturing and sale of water-efficient products. Together we’ve saved 250 billion gallons of water. 

Each American uses an average of 100 gallons of water every day at home. The WaterSense label makes it easy for consumers to identify products that use less water, but behavioral change takes more than a label. We can all start saving water today with three simple steps: Check, twist and replace.
