A resolution to conserve waterEvery year the water level is diminishing. Blaming the nature (rain) doesn't give solution for this. Let's take a moment and think for a while what causes water scarcity and how to protect the resources further.
We humans cut down the trees for different purpose (reduced the chance of rain) and occupied the marsh/farm lands for large apartments and workplaces (rain water has reduced the chance of mixing in the ocean) which reduced the underground water level.
As the reservoirs are drying up, people start to stand in queues since 7a.m. in the morning to collect water. Only 5 pots of water are being distributed per family when the number of people in the family has been already 4 or 5. Elsewhere in India, rural women walk up to 5 kilometers to collect water.
Save water whenever and wherever it is possible.
1) Tips to conserve water at the workplace:
Avoid flow of water unnecessarily.
Installation of Aeromist in wash basin taps reduces 70% water wastage.
Usage of biodegradable plates.
Recycled water for the plants.
2) Tips to conserve water at home:
Wash only full loads of dishes.
Scrape, rather than rinse.
Compost food waste instead or using a garbage disposal.
Wash only full loads using correct water levels.
Use a leak-free high efficiency toilet.
Check fixtures, pipes and toilet for leaks.
Turn off water while brushing teeth or washing hands. Saves up to 132 liters a week!
Fill water in buckets ahead of a bath, instead of using running water, in order to limit water usage.
Take shorter showers.
Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your balcony or outdoor areas. Saves up to 378 liters a week!
Water your garden in the early morning or after the sun sets. Saves up to 900 liters a week!
Cover your pool to prevent evaporation.
