Tip of the Month


Don't forget to hydrate and bring your water bottle.

Chances are, you’re going to drink a lot more water during the summer, which is a good thing. Doing that out of plastic bottles – not so much. Plastic bottles can take more than 450 years to decompose in a landfill if not properly recycled, which is bad for our planet. Consider reducing waste by using a reusable water bottle instead.

July is Smart Irrigation Month. What are you doing to celebrate?

Smart Irrigation Month is all about watering cooler, smarter, and less. 
  • Water Cooler! Water in the morning before 10am or in the evening after 6pm when it's cool. In the middle of the day, temperatures are at their peak and water will evaporate much quicker.

  • Water Smart! Adjust your watering schedule regularly to account for seasonal weather conditions. Get a custom schedule at BeyondTheDrought.com

  • Water Less! Replace broken sprinkler heads and adjust the arc to avoid runoff. Excessive runoff can pollute our local waterways and be costly.

Plastic Free July: Refuse & Reuse

Join Plastic Free July, a global movement focused on ditching single-use plastics, and double down on your efforts to reduce waste.

Plastic pollution is a large problem, not just for our oceans, but for towns like Woodland, as well. Many common plastics, such as straws and plastic utensils, are non-recyclable and end up in our landfill or as litter on our streets! The solution to the question, “Which trash bin do I put this in?” is much easier with reusable items; the answer is the dishwasher!

To learn more about the movement or to sign the pledge, visit PlasticFreeJuly.org.

It's getting hotter! Did you know...

Scientists predict the Sacramento area could be as hot as Phoenix in half a century. Reducing your carbon footprint by conserving energy and water, planting shade trees, and biking or walking whenever possible can reduce your contributions to climate change.
