We do not inherit the EARTH from our parents,
We borrow it from our children

Water

A Trickle of effort is all it will take to help save 'endangered' water

  • Hung up on the clothesline

Let your clothes 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 300kg of CO2 and about Rs.2900 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 of grey water.

  • Save up on a rainy day

Can the skies ever dry up? well,if you never want to find out,setup 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 mange 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. Dont let your kettle runnethover! This way you will save water and power.

  • Dont be a drip!

You cannot put the taps under lock and key but you can certainly close your taps after use or better yet, replace those leaking taps.A drip can waste over 20000 liters of water every year

  • Spring a leak of public protest!

Don your cape of public responsibility. Check public taps and pipe lines in your area and arrange to plug the leak. Be a rebel with a cause
