A Friendly Way to Remind Your Neighbors About the Drought

While out on a run the other morning, I passed by a house with lawn sprinklers going full blast. Water was running down the driveway, down the street and into the gutter. I might have knocked on the door to chat about the severe drought crises facing California, but it looked like no one was home.

Because many people are having similar experiences in their neighborhoods, San Francisco Baykeeper has created a Friendly Drought Reminder. It’s a note that lets you take action, politely, when you see water being wasted. You can cut it out from this page or download it online from the Baykeeper website.

Just fill out the Friendly Drought Reminder and attach it to a neighbor’s door, mailbox or car windshield. 

You can sign your name or remain anonymous. Everything the Friendly Drought Reminder asks your neighbor to do—or not do—is required under California’s new residential drought rules.
