It was World Water Day yesterday. But the event doesn’t get a lot of buzz as much as Earth Hour. The idea behind World Water Day is to raise awareness on the importance and the need to have abundant freshwater. Events, by way of workshops and symposiums, take place all around the world to educate people on this. But you can do your part everday by simply saving water in the following ways below:
- Bathing with shower wastes a lot of gallons of water. If you frequent this, take less showers instead and use a pail and a tub to take a bath with. If this is not possible, replace your shower head with something more efficient. There are certain brands that cater to this now. There are shower nozzles that brings more pressure, but not excessive amounts of water , when you use it.
- If there are leaks in your faucets, don’t let this go to waste for another day. Attend to fixing this as soon as possible. The gallons of water you can save by doing so can not only cut down your consumption, it can also reduce your water bill.
- Be conscious of when you’re brushing your teeth or washing your hands. Some people have this habit of leaving the faucet flowing with water when they do this when it’s simple enough to turn the knob on and off.
- If you keep a garden, have plants that are low maintenance or require less water. If possible, develop a system where you can make use of rain water during the summer months. This way, you can still water your plants and do so efficiently.
