A Great Day Celebrating Cleveland Burning River Fest

This past weekend we celebrated Burning River Fest down on Whiskey Island, sharing the importance of water with many others dedicated to keeping our local water resources clean and thriving. Participants readily flocked to our water buggy to refill their reusable bottles with safe, quality Cleveland tap water.

The Fest celebrated Cleveland’s historic Coast Guard Station with lots of delicious food, live music, vendors, live cooking demos and of course, a variety of great beer from the Great Lakes Brewing Company. All this with a lovely view of Lake Erie in the background.

Clean Water, Powered by PechaKucha Video

A few months ago, Sustainable Cleveland held an event called "Clean Water, Powered by PechaKucha", which featured eight presentations on the topic of Clean Water. PechaKucha, Japanese for "chit-chat" and pronounced "peh-CHAK-chah", is a style of presenting where each person is allowed to show 20 images of their work and each image is pre-timed to 20 seconds. All of the presenters were local Clevelanders who presented their work around the theme of clean water, in honor of this Sustainability’s 2015 “Year of Clean Water” theme.

Trivia Thursdays at Edgewater Live

The last few Thursdays proved to be not only fun but educational at the same time. Cleveland Water teamed up with Cleveland Metroparks to host a series of trivia questions in hopes of educating people a little more about our water system. Winners of each of the six questions received a $75 gift certificate for SUP CLE Stand Up Paddleboarding.
