Contribute to The Nature Conservancy Water Fund

Join Others to Make a Positive Impact for Nature

Less than .03% of Earth’s water is accessible freshwater. Today, almost 2 billion people do not have access to drinking water and by 2030 it’s estimated we will need 40% more water than we can access. The Nature Conservancy has over 400 freshwater experts working for the future of water.

At Bright ‘n Green we capture and recycle greywater in outdoor river and pond features and in 5k gallon total capacity rainwater storage tanks, in order to reduce impact on the city systems and prevent overflow wastewater pollution at peak times from entering our lakes, rivers and streams. We use this gathered water to irrigate our plants and living walls, and operate the worm composting toilet system in place at Bright ‘n Green.

Being Net Zero, Bright ‘n Green does not rely on existing power supplies but creates its own energy, and in doing so does not contribute to the impact of water-consuming and polluting (among multiple other adverse effects) oil, coal and natural gas based services.

Energy Star clothes and dishwashers are a given at Bright ‘n Green, as well as employing a multi-level water filtration system that removes all particulates from the water providing the cleanest potable water possible.

We thank you for standing with us in the cause of Water conservation and improvement. It’s easily one of the most crucial issues facing the environment today.
