What is Project Clean Water Announcing on World Water Day, March 22

Project Clean Water is launching a multi-year educational campaign to focus on how San

engage in proper trash disposal. Key elements of the launch include:


• A 52-week action pledge campaign - “52 Ways to Love Your Water” - that provides

weekly small actions that everyone can participate in that will help protect our

waterways. The pledge aims to get San Diego involved and invested in keeping our

communities healthy. Each week, a new action will be revealed on Project Clean Water’s

social media and newsletter while also providing additional context to help with

education around the topic.


• Engagement on social media – The launch also includes encouraging engagement

through Project Clean Water social media channels and the unveiling of a newly-

designed website (still under wraps), which includes resources to keep our water clean and communities healthy. Social media handles are:
