Green Plumbing Saves Water for Greener Remodeling

Mary Jean Anderson is a mother, a grandmother ... and the owner and president of Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air in San Diego, California. Her company, which now incorporates Walter Anderson Plumbing, Anderson One Hour Heating & Air, Air Best, and a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing franchise, has been in business for 30 years. Now, Anderson has become a licensed GreenPlumber.

Her status as a family matriarch, she says, is part of the reason. "As a mother and grandmother, I believe I need to be proactive to ensure my family and their families will have resources necessary to sustain a healthy lifestyle," Anderson says. She also points out that for her woman-owned plumbing company, "adding "green" makes perfect sense. It adds a level of ethics and integrity while positioning us within the community as experts with values and principles essential to improving our community through a sustainable future."

Life in arid San Diego also drives Anderson toward environmental responsibility. "Living in Southern California, we must conserve water and all other natural energy resources. The GreenPlumber education program has given our team a greater understanding of the absolute necessity of protecting our depleted natural resources," Anderson says. "We now know what to do to make this happen and each of us takes this responsibility seriously. We're anxious to help our customers understand our responsibilities, and theirs. Together we can accomplish the goal of a healthy, affordable, sustainable California."

Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air is focusing its green work on household water audits, residential retrofits, new technology and education.

The GreenPlumbers® training and accreditation program is open to all recognized plumbers and contractors. The program is partnered with the EPA's WaterSense program, the Alliance for Water Efficiency, the California Center for Sustainable Energy, the California Urban Water Conservation Council, and many more industry leaders in its mission of bringing environmental training to plumbers.
