IS YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS A BAY STAR?

We live in a beautiful region surrounded by water. It impacts everything from the food we eat to the fun we have as well as our economic livelihood. Our daily actions have a lasting impact and it's up to us to protect and restore our waterways. It takes a community of individuals making small changes to make a difference. Getting involved in the Bay Star programs is one way you can be part of the effort to protect our region's most defining natural resource, water.

What’s the good, green word?

While we like to think that we appreciate trees every day, there are days like today—Tree Dressing Day—that helps remind us to celebrate the trees around us by “dressing” them.

Whether that means decorating them with ornaments, “yard bombing” them, wrapping them in lights or ribbons, or simply loving on them, trees are a valuable, beautiful resource for all of us on planet earth.

If you’re into decorating your trees, remember to safely remove your dressings if they’re not biodegradable. Perhaps you’ll use reusable materials that can be recycled for years to come. That’s really smart of you!

We are firmly in the holiday season now with lots of, well, shall we say, opportunities to spend money. 💰 If you’re looking for ways to stretch your dollars, we have a fabulous idea for you...

Tap water.🚰

You can pay a dollar OR MORE for a bottle of “designer” water or, for that same dollar, you could fill a 20-ounce. refillable container from any Hampton Roads faucet OVER 1,000 TIMES.

Save that “bottled-water” money and do your part to make a dent in the 22 billion disposable water bottles that end up in landfills each year.

This season, fill a reusable water bottle and take fresh, clean tap water with you wherever you go!💦
