Why Gibber have chosen to support Waterwise
As advocates of water efficiency, it was an easy decision for Gibber to become a Waterwise Affiliate.
Through our work with Northumbrian Water and United Utilities we develop Theatre in Education programmes such as Super Splash Heroes and Think Before You Flush. These educational projects have proven to effect real change in attitudes and behaviours by raising awareness of how we use water, how we waste water and how small changes in our water using behaviour can conserve water resources and reduce blockages saving energy and money.
We also participate annually in Water Saving Week as well as actively promoting other water saving schemes.

By supporting Waterwise, we hope that industry leaders will see the valuable work Gibber is doing to support the water industry and how Theatre in Education (TiE) provides an effective resource for schools. TiE engages with a high number of students and helps deliver memorable messages and reach target audiences within a short period of time.
