The dual-flush toilets that were recently installed in CU-Boulder’s newest buildings are an important example of small changes residents of Colorado can make to lessen their impact on climate change. With these eco-friendly toilets, CU-Boulder’s campus uses 290 million gallons of water a year, as opposed to the 412 million gallons of water being used in 2003. 122 million gallons of water saved just by changing toilets! Global warming may seem like a daunting problem to face, but with stories like CU-Boulder’s toilet switch to use less water gaining state-wide attention, people in Colorado will be prone to step up and make small changes in their daily routines to combat climate change. If the citizens of Colorado are willing to make changes throughout their own lives, hopefully the state legislators will take notice and step up their own efforts to stop global warming in a legal sense.
