The SuperValu Upcycling Challenge

Irish Water Value Water Award

The aim of the Irish Water Value Water Award is to raise awareness of the importance of mindful water consumption in communities and encourage participation of members of the community to reduce consumption per household and per neighbourhood by promoting behaviours that conserve water, e.g. using water butts instead of hosepipes to garden common areas, car washing schemes that use less water.

It will reconnect communities with their water and where it comes from and reward communities by recognising positive impacts of TidyTowns activities on the sustainable supply of water to their community and environment.
