Surrey, British Columbia – Caroma, the worldwide leader in high efficiency dual flush toilets for commercial and residential use, announces the winning tweets for the water conservation Twitter contest sponsored by the company. Each winner will receive a dual flush toilet for their participation in the awareness building contest. Beginning at Global Green’s pre-Oscar party on Wednesday March 3, 2010, which was co-sponsored by Caroma, the contest challenged consumers to post water saving tips every week on Twitter leading up to Earth Month.


The winning tweets for each week are: Week 1: “Water-Saving Tip: If it's yellow, let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down." Week 2: "Take showers instead of baths.” Week 3: “Use leftover drinking water (for yourself and pets) to water your plants.” Week 4: “Save water by turning the water off while brushing your teeth.” Week 5: “Save water by switching your toilet to a Caroma dual flush toilet.”


Other great examples of water conserving tips posted on Twitter included turning off the shower while soaping and shampooing, refraining from wetting your toothbrush before brushing, taking five minute showers, and washing little black dresses in the cold water cycle to save water and energy. For consumers who didn’t win, Caroma has launched the “One Flush Makes a Difference” promotion in honor of Earth Month. Until the end of April, consumers can visit to receive a coupon for 50% off the list price of any Caroma toilet at participating retail locations.
