The world water disaster is now representing one of the most serious public health problems facing the world these days.
Water covers 70% of the Earth but only 3% of it, is clean and suitable for human intake. The average family of four makes use of 450 liters (120 gallons) of water a day, which is 164,000 liters (44,000 gallons) a year.
The UN expects that 3.4 billion humans might be residing in countries defined as water-scarce by 2025. When water is scarce, human beings are pressured to consume infected water.
So today we want to discover ways to save water now more than ever. Here are 5 simple ways to save water which you can do to reduce down your water consumption today.
5 Ways To Save Water At Home
1- Consider the water footprint of your food plan:
Some foods require a lot more water to produce than others. According to Water Footprint, it takes 140 liters (35 gallons) of water to make just one cup of coffee, 1,000 liters (270 gallons) to make one liter of milk, and 16,000 liters to make one pound of beef.
2- Turn off the taps:
Leaving a tap running while brushing teeth uses 6 litres of water a minute. And by fixing a dripping tap you can save over 60 litres of water every week.
3- Boil what you need:
Only boil only as many cups of water as per your need for your tea round. You’ll indirectly be saving cash and energy.
4- Save up your dirty clothes:
Use power home equipment every time possible and always use them at full potential. Wash a full machine load of clothes uses less water and power than 1/2-loads. It will also result in lower payments/bills as well.
5- Never throw water away:
If you pour too much out or have some left in your glass, use it. Pour the excess water in watering a plant, or add it in your water kettle.
We have plenty of water in this country but we’re often not careful about how much we use. There may be so much that we as people can do to assist in saving water carefully. Our collective efforts will not only reduce our month-to-month water bills, but will pass an extended way in the direction of solving this growing trouble.
