World Water Day – March 22

Water (H2O) is a finite natural resource that must be conserved; it is limited and scarce in many places. Even if you live in an area with ample rainfall, using water uses energy to process it, pump it, heat it, pump it, and process it again.

Ways to save water:

  1. Use your washing machine only when it is filled to its total capacity. You can save about 4500 litres per month in this process. Besides saving water, this method is also helpful to save electricity.
  2. Avoid using a shower for bathing. Try using a bucket instead. This will help you save about 150-200 litres everyday.
  3. Turn off the tap while brushing and save more than 200 litres of water every month.
  4. Don't drink water if you are not thirsty.
  5. Use sprinklers to water the plants provided you have a large garden.
  6. Ensure that your home has no leakages. Also check whether all water bottles are closed properly.
  7. Use small glasses for drinking water. The smaller the container, the less consumption of water.
  8. Whenever you waste water, just think about those millions of people who still struggle to save every drop of water for their survival.
  9. Convert your toilet to low flush. Place a plastic bottle of water in the tank to displace some of the water used for each flush. Weigh the bottle down with pebbles or sand, if necessary. Or, try ordering a 'save-a-flush' or 'hippo' from your local water board.
  10. Plant small trees under big trees. This will help prevent evaporation and provides some shade for your plants. You can also plant a shade garden under trees.
  11. Lastly, spread awareness regarding water conservation.

Well, do you have any more ways to save water?

Great tips on how to save water. A lot of water is wasted in those taps everyday. But that doesn't end there. There are still a lot of things we should look into if we really want to save water like for instance in the garden. We should use the conventional water container to water the plants rather than using a hose or a sprinkler. We need to all do our part to conserve water. Engaging yourselves in an Environmental Training Courses activity is really an act that should be shared with others. It is a good deed indeed for many of us inhabitants of the planet earth. I hope lots of people will mirror this act and also share it to youngsters.
