Every Drop Counts!

World Water Day was on March 22nd. Water crisis is one of the major issues the world is facing today. Let us contribute our bit towards conservation of this natural resource.

Some Do's and Don't's :
  • Monitor your water bill and water meter to track water usage.
  • Water your lawn and garden in the morning or evening when temperatures are c00ler to minimize evaporation.
  • Wash fruits and vegetables in a pan of water instead of running water from the tap.
  • Collect the water used for washing fruits and vegetables, or rice, dals and other organic food items and reuse to water houseplants.
  • Spreading a layer of organic mulch around plants retains moisture an saves water,time and money.
  • Shorten your shower by a minute or two and you will save up to 150 gallons per month!
  • When you clean the fish tank use the drained water for plants. The water is rich in nitrogen and phosphorous acting as a free and effective fertilizer
  • Turn off the water while shaving and save up to 300 gallons a month!
  • Soak pots and pans instead of letting the water run while you scrape them clean.
  • Water the plants deeply but less frequently to encourage deep root growth and drought tolerance.
  • Turning off the water while brushing your teeth can save 25 gallons a month!
  • Do not ignore a leaking tap or shower head, get it repaired at the earliest.
  • Do not throw away left over drinking water in bottles, water some plants with it.
  • Encourage your children, friends and neighbors to be part of a water-conscious community. Encourage your employer to promote water conservation in the workplace.

Lets try to do one thing each day that will result in saving water. Don't worry if the savings are minimal, every drop counts, YOU can make the difference.

If we save water today, it will save us tomorrow.
