Saving water yields big reward for Wis. family

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Conserving water at home has paid off in a big way for Tim Buhler of Glenbeulah, Wis., who has been announced the winner of a week-long eco-vacation from the Responsible Bathroom sweepstakes, sponsored by American Standard Brands.

The sweepstakes were hosted at the Responsible Bathroom website, where entrants could earn extra chances to win by pledging to save water in various ways around the house.

Buhler’s wife Lonnie and children Ryan, 21, and Shannon, 17, will enjoy a seven-day eco adventure in Costa Rica. Included in the vacation package is a wildlife tour on the Sarapiqui River, a zip line tour of the Arenal Volcano, and the chance to help plant trees in a local reforestation project. The prize package is valued at $28,400 and includes roundtrip airfare, six nights of hotel accommodations, and $500 cash.

Over thirty runners-up in the contest also received water-saving American Standard FloWise Showerheads. The FloWise line of showerheads uses the exclusive American Standard turbine technology to deliver an invigorating shower experience with up to 40% water savings over conventional showerheads.

“We believe that water is our most valuable resource,” said Don Devine, president and CEO of American Standard Brands. “We believe it is important to engage our consumer and trade partners in our Responsible Bathroom tour so as to draw attention to the issue of water conservation, and highlight how individuals and businesses can use water more efficiently in their everyday lives.”
