Yes, 70% of the Earth is made up of water. But did you know that only 2% of that is fresh water safe for consumption? As much as we see it all around us, water is also a finite resource and conservation is important.

Here are some water conservation actions that can be practiced:

  • Turn off the taps when not in use ie when brushing teeth, washing your wash, washing plates, etc. Try using a glass or a basin instead of running water

  • Every minute you spend in a power shower uses up to 17 litres of water . So keep your showers short, sweet and water-saving - you can even set a timer on your phone to help you keep track of time

  • Replace/attach your taps, shower heads, toilet, washing machine, etc. with water-saving devices

  • Don't overdo washing the car or watering the plants. Plan a schedule and check the weather.

  • Harvest rainwater at home - watch the video below to know how
