Smart Irrigation Month
Ways Contractors Can Get Involved
First launched by the Irrigation Association in July 2005, Smart Irrigation Month aims to increase consumer awareness and grow demand for water-saving products, practices and services.
Ways Contractors Can Get Involved:
Hand out Smart Irrigation Month bumper stickers, available for purchase at irrigation.org.
Promote water-efficient products that qualify for rebates from your local water authority.
Add the Smart Irrigation Month logo to your email signature.
Take a #SmartSelfie and share it on social media - the one with the most likes on the IA Facebook page by the end of the month will get a free Irrigation Show registration.
Lobby your town to proclaim July as Smart Irrigation Month - a sample proclamation is available on irrigation.org. In fact, on June 21, Governor Mark Dayton proclaimed July as Smart Irrigation Month throughout the state of Minnesota.
Watch for infographics posted on social media and the "Tip of the Month," posted throughout the year.
"Our member companies have embraced this campaign, and they have extended our reach tenfold. What started as a couple of free advertising spots over 10 years ago is now reaching hundreds of thousands of people through our member efforts, state proclamations, magazine ads, social media and more."
Deborah Hamlin, CAE, FASAE, CEO of the Irrigation Association.
