World Water Day: Celebrate Gray Water Reuse in Oregon

Observed globally on March 22, World Water Day provides a speacial opportunity to celebrate gray water reuse in Oregon.   Thanks to the efforts of gray water champions in Salem like Rep. Ben Cannon and the folks at Recode Oregon, gray water reuse is now legal in our state.
To celebrate this major step towards a more sustainable state, Recode Oregon is hosting an event at SEA Change Gallery from 5:30-7:30 pm on Monday, March 22.
Recode Oregon invites the public to celebrate this victory, while learning  about gray water and supporting Recode’s statewide organizing efforts.  Rep. Cannon will be the special guest and there will be food, drinks and fun!
The evening includes Recode’s new video about gray water systems, updates on the Gray Water Advisory Committee’s rulemaking and a sneak preview of Recode’s new EcoSanitation campaign, in which PHLUSH is a partner.  !
This celebration is a benefit for Recode’s statewide organizing tour to connect people throughout the state who are working to create sustainable culture by changing laws and regulations to encourage sustainable building and land use.  This tour will culminate in a state wide Recode forum to strategize on future projects and campaigns.
