Drop 100 is an initiative to save 100 million gallons of water each year in large commercial buildings. Organizations in Drop 100 are proving it’s possible to achieve deep water savings by setting big goals and getting creative.
“Last year, I asked L.A. to step up to address this drought head on-- and Angelenos rose to the challenge, cutting our water use by over 16% since 2014," said Mayor Eric Garcetti. "As we all do our part, I'm proud to partner with the LA Better Buildings Challenge and our city's business community to ensure our commercial buildings-- which represent nearly one fifth of our city's water consumption-- are getting smart about water conservation. Working together, Drop 100 will play a key role in meeting the aggressive water saving goals outlined in my Sustainable City pLAn."
