Mayor Garcetti, First Lady Amy Elaine Wakeland, and the Getty House Foundation Board of Directors convened partners from across L.A., including small businesses, Neighborhood Councils, corporate leaders, and local nonprofits, to discuss California’s historic drought and L.A.’s challenge to transform itself to secure a more sustainable future.
The Mayor and special guests discussed the Mayor’s Executive Directive No. 5: Emergency Drought Response—Creating a Water Wise City, which provided for a 20% reduction in water use by 2017; the recently released Sustainability City pLAn; and the launch of the Save the Drop water conservation awareness campaign. Two new PSAs, narrated by Steve Carrell and Jamie Camil and scored by Moby, were debuted. The PSAs encourage residents to take small steps everyday to curb their water use.
