Release date- 04102017 - ATLANTA- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized The Home Depot, with a 2017 WaterSense Sustained Excellence Award for its commitment to promoting the value of water efficiency to its customers, encouraging innovation within its vendors and supplier base, and for decreasing water use within its operational footprint.

EPA's Sustained Excellence Award is the organization's highest honor for water conservation and this is the third consecutive win for The Home Depot. The company's goal is to save consumers 250 billion gallons of water by 2020 through the sale and proper use of WaterSense certified products.

The Home Depot's annual sales of WaterSense products saved customers 76 billion gallons of water; equal to $643 million in avoided water utility costs.

In stores, all new bathroom vanity faucets, showerheads and toilets are WaterSense labeled.

The company has captured more than 72.5 million gallons of rainwater, enough to fill 1.4 million standard bathtubs, from reclamation tanks in its garden centers.

'The Home Depot is committed to water conservation and efficiency in both the products we sell and in our store operations,' said Ron Jarvis, vice president of environmental. 'The WaterSense label and partner recognition enables us to educate consumers on the value of water and the positive impacts they can make in their homes on a daily basis.'

'Since 2006, utilities, manufacturers, retailers, builders, communities, states, and other organizations have voluntarily supported WaterSense program's efforts to protect and preserve our nation's water supply for future generations,' said WaterSense Program Manager Veronica Blette. 'By saving water together, these award winners and all of our partners help consumers and businesses realize the environmental and economic benefits of water efficiency.'

The Home Depot now offers over 7,000 WaterSense labeled fixtures and appliances in its stores and online; an increase of more than 2,000 products year-over-year.
