Target: Bear Republic Brewing Company
Goal: Praise company for investing in water conservation during a drought
The Bear Republic Brewing Company, located in Cloverdale California, has recently made immense water conservation efforts in the midst of one of the worst droughts in California State history. The brewing company installed an on-site water treatment system and also paid for two local wells. These efforts by the Bear Republic Brewing Company deserve the highest praise, as they attempt to directly confront the drought crisis in the state.
The water treatment system called EcoVolt was originally designed for the United States Military, but the brewery plans to use it to recycle water on their own property. This system will recycle around 10 percent of the 7.8 million gallons of water the company uses yearly. In addition, this system will reduce the company’s electricity use by 50 percent. The wells that the company has funded will provide the town of Cloverdale with an extra 600,000 gallons of water every day, which is a 40% increase from their usual water supply.
The town of Cloverfield, California was previously expected to run out of water in a few months, but Bear Republic Brewing Company’s efforts will expand that timeline immensely. It is extremely refreshing to see a company that is more concerned about sustainable business practices than revenue, and is selfless in pursuing actions that benefit the greater good. Please sign the petition below to thank Bear Republic for their noble efforts to use sustainable practices in the midst of a disastrous drought.

As you know, your new water treatment system will recycle about 10% of the water you use, and the wells you are funding will increase Cloverdale’s water supply by 40%. This will immensely help the town, which was originally expected to run out of water in just a few months.
