Soihtu organizes a water saving competition – possibility to win 1000 € for the community!

Do you know how much water you use daily? In Kortepohja Student Village and Soihtu Vehkakuja, water is included in the rent, so the tenant does not have to think much about the water consumption. However, we want to encourage all our tenants to follow their own water consumption in the future.

In the spring of 2023, we will launch a water saving competition for tenants in all housing locations of Soihtu. The housing location that saved the most water wins 1 000 euros for community activities and sharing economy! All housing locations that are able to save water at least 5 % compared to this year, will win 500 euros for the community.

The competition is running from 1 January to 30 April 2023. 

Tips for saving water: 

  • Report possible leaks in taps and in the toilet to the maintenance as soon as possible. 
  • Do not wash dishes under running water. 
  • Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth or soaping. 
  • When you do laundry, only wash full loads. 
  • Spend as little time as possible in the shower and prefer general sauna shifts. 
  • Time your shower times and try to reduce the time you spend in the shower. 
  • With energy-efficient household appliances, you save water too.
