Every Drop Counts – Colgate wants us to pledge to save water

Every Drop Counts – Colgate wants us to pledge to save water

#EveryDropCountsClean water is a precious resource but in westernized countries we often forget how precious it is. Colgate is reminding us that an act as simple as turning the faucet while brushing your teeth could save thousands of gallons of water per year. Yes – thousands of gallons. Running the faucet while you brush can waste up to 4 gallons each time. In a two person household just turning off the faucet would save 5,840 gallons of water each year. That’s an easy way to make a big impact. So join with Colgate to make every drop count.

Its a simple, fun, and fairly inexpensive way to personalize a door – whether its in a dorm room, an apartment, or a senior living facility.  The door stickers can be made to look like one of your own doors or choose from a library of door stickers.

Creating a door sticker that matches a senior’s former home door can help make a move to a senior living facility easier by providing some familiarity in strange surroundings. This can be especially useful for people with dementia.

Even with the FTC do not call list and rules for spammy calls we still receive many calls from numbers we don’t know.  Before returning the call, check the number out. Simply put the number into Google’s search box – either with formatting (i.e. parentheses around the area code and dash in the middle) or just run all the numbers together. The results will usually show numerous websites that let you look up the phone number. Some require a fee, but several are free. Other websites such as http://www.allsnumbers.com, www.whocallsme.com , www.findwhocallsme.com , or www.shouldianswer.com include comments from others who’ve received calls from this same phone number. They also may show the location of the call’s origination and whether it is a landline or a mobile phone. Often there is enough information on the Google results page itself to help you decide if this call is of interest to you.
