While there’s a growing concern about the conservation of water in today’s times, several drought-stricken areas are already emerging at an alarming rate. We're already facing a severe water crisis, and we need to act now so that we don't end up repenting in the future.
Believe it or not, conscious use of water and minor changes in your lifestyle could help save gallons of water. Even Gandhiji advocated, "Be the change that you wish to see in the world."
So why not begin right away and then gradually aim at achieving higher goals of saving more water. Here’s a list of few water-saving tips for you to get started.
1. Turn off that tap in time
Do you really want the water gushing out of the tap, being wasted while you are busy brushing your teeth or scrubbing your hand with soap?
Most certainly not! Turn that faucet off and save a few gallons of water.
2. Switch to filling up a bucket instead of taking a shower
As you stand under a shower, a lot of water goes straight down the drain. Instead, fill up a bucket and have accountability of how much water you are using. This way you only use the amount of water you really require.
3. Set up a water purifier with ART (Advance Recovery Technology)
If you’ve already set your mind on big water savings you simply cannot miss fixing those untimely leaks. You can choose to go DIY, or simply call a plumber.
5. Soak your dirty dishes and fruits
They say, ‘a little goes a long way’. So, why not soak your dirty dishes and fruits in a limited amount of water instead of running the faucet endlessly?
6. Don’t push the start button until your dishwasher or washing machine is full.
Many gallons of water can be saved while washing those dirty dishes and clothes, if only we remember to start those machines after they’re full.
7. Re-use your cooking water
Once you boil some veggies, don't just pour all that water down the drain. You can use it to cook something else later on. This is actually a really good practice, because there are added nutrients in the water, making it super healthy for you.
After adhering to these water saving tips, we hope that others around you will also follow suit, and together we can work towards ending the water crisis.
