Carson Toyota Confirms, Toyota & Wyland Foundation to Launch 2nd Annual National Water Conservation Challenge

U.S. Cities Compete to be the Most Water-Wise during Earth Month


WEBWIRE – Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Carson Toyota is excited to confirm, Toyota is continuing its partnership with Wyland Foundation to promote resource conservation and the importance of sustainability leading up to and throughout Earth Month in April.

Founded by renowned marine artist Wyland, the Wyland Foundation brings attention to the importance of healthy oceans and waterways, aligning with Toyota’s commitment to global sustainability and environmental stewardship. The Wyland Foundation, in association with Toyota, will hold The National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation throughout April and ask U.S. residents to sign an online pledge at www.mywaterpledge.com to conserve water and resources. Cities with the highest percentage of residents who make the commitment are entered to win hundreds of environmentally friendly prizes, including a Toyota Prius c, water-saving fixtures and gift certificates. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, National League of Cities, CH2M Hill’s WaterMatch, Rain Bird Corporation, Lowe’s Home Improvement store and the U.S. Forest Service also support the challenge.

New to the challenge this year is the Wyland Clean Water Mobile Learning Experience, a 1,000-square foot interactive exhibit, which demonstrates the ways water shapes human lives. The traveling exhibit features interactive models – from an onboard running river to a 40-person theater with computer-controlled special effects – to explore the nation’s complex relationship with its water resources.  Kicking off at the beginning of March, the tour will travel across the U.S., visiting schools and community events.

For the first time, mayors and elected officials who participate in the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation can earn additional prizes for their residents if their cities win. A second prize drawing for a $1,000 Lowe’s shopping spree will be held among all participants, regardless if a city is among the six winning cities. Last year, residents who participated in the challenge pledged to reduce their water use by 4.7 billion gallons.

Carson Toyota has been serving Southern California residents since 1974. With an inventory of more than 1,000 new and pre-owned vehicles in stock, a knowledgeable sales staff, expert factory-trained technicians and a state-of-the-art parts and service department on more than 10 acres, Carson Toyota is one of the highest volume Toyota dealerships in the nation.
