Saving water saves lives. Since water is essential for life itself, we need to conserve it for future generation. Nowadays, we use and misused water much than what we need. Everyone must know that it is our primary duty to learn the importance of it and how easy it would be to take action now before it’s too late.
Conservation is defined as “the act of preserving, guarding and protecting or wise use of environment or its natural resources.” It can be done or start even on small amount of adjustments that could possibly turn out into a big blast in conserving more water now and for future use.
It can simply start with you or in your own home. It is now time to make those simple plans of saving water every day. Sometimes we don’t care how much water we waste in doing our daily chores. There are those simple ways in which we take water for granted like for instance when brushing teeth or washing hands we use to let tap water flow instead of turning it off to reduce waste.
It is actually a matter of mind over matter. We only need to remember always how precious water is every time we use it like when taking a bath, washing clothes, flushing the toilet or even just watering plants in order for us to easily conserve and protect it.
Water recycling could be best done too! You can cut down your water usage through proper recycling in your home. You can start up from your kitchen wherein you can save those left over drinking water to be used for other possible purposes.
You can also save those rinsed water out from your laundry for flushing the toilet or you can simply adjust the water flush to minimize the use of it. Remember that tap water is treated and already passed the SDWA standard so it needs to be controlled most of the time for drinking purposes.
Collecting and Storing Rain Water
You can actually recycle rain water for your home use. You can make use of it for your gardening, laundry, flushing the toilet or even for the whole house use if properly collected and through properly installed rain water collection system out from your house roof and gutters. Since these are much expensive way of water conservation, you can simply make use of those rain water barrels available in your home.
If possible, during laundry always wash your clothes in full loads and even on your dish washer. These could minimize the use of too much water. Check for those leaks on your piping or in your tap. Small water leak could lead to too much lost or even could add more on your bills. Yu can check out those hidden leaks from it through your water readings and repair possible leaks.
Daily Water Conservation
Make Use of Shorter Showers - Shorter ones use less water compared to longer showers. You can make use also of those low flow shower heads. There are lots of other ways on conserving water at home but saving water should not only start and end up in your homes but it should be widely practiced as a whole for the entire population and for future generation. As they say, only 1% of total global water supply is fresh water.
These should make up for all of those human consumptions as well as water drinking that needs to be save. It can save money too as well as the environment at the same time. If we cannot control the global deficit of it we can actually save it from using unnecessary water every day or by controlling our daily use or how much are we supposed to use on a daily basis.
As they say we are facing water shortage in the coming 2025. So we should act now by preserving fresh water resources, minimize if not totally eradicate water pollution, and of course by recycling cleaning and as well as by the use of proper purifying water that are eco-friendly in order to provide good water resources for children of the next generation.
You can also conserve water for irrigation and for industrial uses. These could save the environment globally not only for personal reasons such as reducing monthly bills but for protection for your family’s future through proper preservation of water supply.
What will happen to the next generation?
If exploitation would still prevail, what will happen to the next generation? Maybe there would be a war for just a pail or with just a glass of water? Or war between strong nations around the world just for the sake of one fourth of that 1% fresh water availability left for them? Better think twice.
Maybe there would never be generation next to us if water exploitation will still prevail these days. Better yet preservation should be given outmost priority now before it’s too late for us to notice that water resources are almost dying. It is our great responsibility for them to pass on those natural resources unharmed for them to cherish too.
If you think it’s too impossible to do? Why not give it a try? You can start by just simply acknowledging and knowing what you should do in your own little way of preserving it because that little way could spell magic and if done by everyone it could possible save lives and save our future.
It is a fact that conserving water is taken for granted these days because of its great increasing need worldwide not mentioning of the truth that freshwater resources now are extremely dying for human consumption because of water pollution.
For as long as the world is turning so fast when it comes to industrialization and technology, we forgot the essence of water as the most precious gift from God that we should be thankful that’s why it is also called “life”.
Water is life as they say. So we need to give importance to it and continuously preserve and protect it not only for ourselves now but for the next generation for them enjoy the beauty, essence and the natural taste of water for them to cherish, protect and preserve too in order to pass it on for their next generation too!
