How to Save Water in Six Easy Ways

Why we need to conserve water

Water is very important in our world today because for one thing, 60%-90% of our body mass is made of water. This shows that our bodies depend on water to survive. Not only this, our entire eco-system depends on it. Plants and trees need water to grow and survive or they will get really dry and thirsty and will eventually die. And we need plants to grow because they take in the CO2 and then turn the CO2 into O which is what we depend on to breath, and then once we take in the O, we breath out CO2 and the cycle will repeat. And if the plants don't grow, the animals will not have any food, then they will starve and will die, then we wont have any food. SO as you can see, we need water to survive.
