CONSERVING HOUSEHOLD WATER!!!

SAVING WATER AT HOME

WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO BE WATER FRIENDLY

As citizens of the planet earth its our job to conserve as much water as possible, its not hard to be water friendly. There is only 2.5% of freshwater left in our planet earth, without a steady supply of clean water, all living things would cease to exist. Water is the lifeblood of the planet earth, we cannot live without clean freshwater. If we don't take action now, in the future it can be too late for life on planet earth. If we ALL save water, it can add up to a major savings in water energy and money. The water crisis is the #1 global risk based on the impact to society. Many communities across the world are already facing challenges in maintaining healthy and affordable water supply. Some communities don't get access to clean freshwater. Most of us in Canada have full access to water, while others don't have that opportunity. Its not hard to be water friendly, it helps us humans and our planet earth.

WATER IS A GIFT SO DON'T WASTE IT, TURN IT OFF WHEN YOU'RE DONE WE WILL HAVE ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE

There are so many ways of saving water at home!!

Saving water isn't hard to do, think water friendly before you use...

Nearly 70% of the earth is water and only 2.5 is freshwater!! At home we can save household water in so many ways, for example:

  • Brushing teeth: Turn off the tap when you're not using the water.
  • Shower: When taking a shower, its really not necessary to take 25-30 minutes. A 5-minute shower can help a lot!! and also when not using the water in the shower turn off the tap.
  • Cleaning: When doing laundry make sure its a full load take as much advantage of the water you're going to use, also the same thing for a dishwasher when its not that necessary you can hand wash your dishes and turn off the water when scrubbing dishes.
  • Fixing A Leaky Faucet: Maybe it doesn't seem a lot but every drop of water count when having a leaky faucet a "few" drops may add up to gallons of water.
  • Don’t let the faucet run while you clean vegetables:
    Just rinse them in a stopper sink or a pan of clean water. Use a dual-setting aerator.
  • Keep a bottle of drinking water in the fridge: Running tap water to cool it off for drinking water is wasteful.
  • REMEMBER TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE WATER YOU ARE GOING TO USE!!

Benefits of being water friendly at home!!

The benefit of saving water at home saves you and the earth as well. Here are some examples of saving water:

  • It saves you money: By saving water at home it helps you save money on your water bill. You can save by just being water friendly
  • It minimizes water pollution and health risks: With healthy clean, freshwater we minimize the chance of dying from water related disease. Saving water can reduce the risk of environmental contamination or pollution.

The harm us humnas can cause if not thinking before using water!!

By saving today's water, it can save you later...

Us humans can not survive mainly without water, food, or blood, water is the lifeblood of the planet earth and its all disappearing and becoming contaminated/wasted, that's all we would have left contaminated water that can get us very sick. We are taking our water for granted, it's our job to take care of the earth's blood before its too late. Its not hard to think before we use water, if we each save a little it can add up to major savings in water, energy and money. Did you know that more than 840,000 people die each year of water related diseases... That's scary if we don't start saving our water now that number may increase more and more and we all equally could be extinct. We don't realize what we have until it's gone, water conservation should not be considered an option any longer.
