A TRICKLE OF EFFORT IS ALL IT WILL TAKE TO HELP SAVE ‘ENDANGERED’ WATER
Let your cloths hang loose instead of using energy while tumble-drying. The longer it takes to dry the more you can delay the folding and ironing.
You will save 300 kg of CO2 and about Rs. 2,900 per year.
Give your grey water a job
Grey water – the water that goes waste after using in washing laundry, food etc. – can now be recycled and used to water your plants or flush toilets. Get creative and you may come up with other uses for grey water.
Can the skies ever dry up? Well, if you never want to find out, set up a reservoir on your roof, collect all the water from the surfaces it falls on, and bank it in a storage tank.
Use the right head
Showers account for two-thirds of all water-heating costs. If you want to manage your dough, low flow shower-heads is the way to go!
Not up to the brim
Kettles use up a lot of energy when water is filled to the brim. Fill them with the exact requirement of water. Don’t let your kettle runneth over! This way, you’ll save water and power.
Don’t be a drip!
You cannot put the taps under lock and key but you can certainly close your taps tights after use or better yet, replace those leaking taps. A drip can waste over 20,000 liters of water every year.
Don your cape of public responsibility. Check public taps and public pipelines in your area and arrange to plug the leak.
Be a rebel with a cause.
Can Water go extinct?
DID YOU KNOW?
A shower takes 10% less energy than a long bath.
