Wholly H2o

Wholly H2o equips Californians with the information and skills necessary to normalize water conservation and efficiency, as well as to re-conceptualize rainwater, graywater, stormwater, and black water reuse as primary water sources. The goal is to mitigate the currently unsustainable demands on California water supplies and the corresponding environmental degradation of California’s natural water systems. Learn more at

greetings! i live between Tortuguero Natl. Park and CCC (Caribbean Conservation Corp.-Tortoise conservation) on Tortuguero Island, Costa Rica. I’m an old Earth Islander - now that this carless island has a new Internet Cafe, i can keep in touch. i am wondering if WE have any projects in Costa Rica- thanks and pura vida! Melo - see: Tortuguerovillage. com; it’s an Ecotraveler village w/recycling center, and i’m a Pacific Northwest Ecologist in paradise.
