Hatfield House visitors save water with Veolia
VISITORS to the Hatfield House Country Show have helped to save the equivalent of 300 baths-full of water a day, after stocking up on Veolia Water’s ‘Hippo’ water-saving devices.
Every visitor who stopped by its stand was given one of the gadgets, which are being distributed by the company’s ‘Savewater Squad’ as part of its water-saving ‘Hug a Hippo’ campaign.
The Hatfield-based company gave away almost 1,000 free gadgets and offered tips on how to save water.
Mike Pocock, Veolia Water’s head of strategic planning, who leads the company’s work on water efficiency, said: “With our population growing and more demand being placed on our existing supplies, we all need to play our part if we are going to avoid water shortages in the future.
“We know that heating water, for baths or in washing machines, accounts for around 30 per cent of the average fuel bill, so saving water also means lower fuel bills and a smaller carbon footprint.
