EPA Recognizes Home Depot’s Water Efficiency Initiatives

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has named The Home Depot a 2014 WaterSense Partner of the Year for its commitment to water efficiency and efforts to educate consumers about WaterSense products throughout its stores and online.

“Teaching consumers about water conservation has always been a focus of ours, and now is more critical than ever,” said Ron Jarvis, vp/environmental for The Home Depot. “Our partnership with WaterSense helps us provide customers with more efficient products that reduce their water use, and can help save money on their monthly bills.”

This is The Home Depot’s third EPA partner award in 2014, marking the second consecutive year the retailer has won three key EPA honors: WaterSense Partner of the Year, Energy Star Partner of the Year and SmartWay Excellence Award.
