Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6 litres of water per minute
Repair dripping faucets by replacing washers. If your faucet is dripping at the rate of one drop per second, you can expect to waste 2,700 gallons per year which will add to the cost of water and sewer utilities, or strain your septic system.
Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
Shorten your shower by a minute or two and you’ll save up to 150 gallons per month.
Installing a water-saving flush where the amount of water released can be controlled, depending on whether urine or stool is to be flushed
The terrace of your house or building is a perfect place for collecting water. If you have a naturally sloping roof, you could simply allow the water to flow into a bucket. Create an artificial slope using sheets of plastic or metal to collect water to one point.
Car washing is one of the biggest water guzzlers. Reuse water as much as you can. For example, dirty water that was used to wash clothes or dishes can be used to wash your car. Avoid using a hose to wash your car. Instead, use a bucket of water and a cloth to clean your car.
While you read this sitting on your comfortable office chair sipping on coffee, there’s a group of villagers walking to a common well that’s almost dried up to gather drinking water for the week. There’s also a farmer who has lost all hope and will to wait for a good year and is at the brink of ending his life.
All this because they don’t have access to water, for anything!
How many farmer suicide headlines will it take for us to do something? Are we becoming numb to somebody not having access to something as basic as water?
It’s time we go beyond shaking our heads and feeling bad, it’s time to send help now!
We’ve partnered with a bunch of NGOs, select the one you like and start a fundraising campaign for them. Or you could pick the ones you like and donate to the cause.
It’s said the next world war would be fought over water. Your actions have the power to change that. Act now!
