What measures can we take to conserve water?

Water is a very important resource not only for us but also for our future generations. We should; therefore, save it in order to provide the maximum benefit to others. Water is necessary for our lives. So, if we save water, we save life.

However, one must either not be aware of the ways to conserve it or may be reluctant thinking that such work will require a lot of toil. Let's talk about the ways in which water can be conserved.

  • Turn off the Tap Post Use: While we brush our teeth, water keeps spilling out. It is necessary to close the tap after use.

  • Short Showers: Use a bucket and a mug for taking bath instead of a shower every day, or keep your showers short not to waste water.

  • Rainwater Harvesting: Rain showers are an excellent source of plentiful water. One must save it in order to use it for purposes like washing clothes and watering the plants in one’s garden. Rainwater harvesting pits should be taken up for storing and reusing rainwater.

  • Fix the Broken Taps: Often water gets wasted out of the taps which are not in a good condition. They should be fixed as soon as you notice them.

  • Wash Plenty of Clothes Together: When washing clothes, make sure that you are washing full loads of laundry. You are wasting a lot of water washing only half of the load.

  • Sprinkler System: It is the best way to water plants in the garden.

  • Take Care While Washing Utensils: While doing the daily household chores, try to minimize the use of water.

  • Save One, Save all: Teach even the children of the house to take care to not waste water.
