Posts Tagged ‘Conserve water dont waste it’


I recently read this very disconcerting and worrying article. Please read it and share. Along with other major cities in the world, London will run out of water in the not too distant future. Water is probably the MOST precious commodity next to air, and yet people waste it like its an unending supply. Only 3% of the water on the planet is drinkable and yet its poured away without thought. Of the 7 billion people on the planet, 2.7 billion have no proper access to fresh drinking water.

Just a few ways in which we waste water every day:

Boiling a full kettle for one cup = wasting water.

Gushing taps =wasting water.

Standing in the shower for ages =wasted water.

Filling a swimming pool =horrendous waste of water.

Washing a car with a hose pipe =horrendous waste of water.

Not planting a water retaining garden =waste of water.

Using sprinklers on the lawn during the day =waste of water.

Not retaining rainwater in a drum =waste of water.

Producing the hundreds of single use PLASTIC bottles of water =obscene waste of water.

Recycling that plastic = unnecessary waste of water.

Ice bucket challenge =waste of water….yes they raised money for charity, but millions of liters of water went to waste.

The list of how water is wasted is endless. Please do consider that #waterisprecious and think about how you can #savewater and #stopwaste

A good place to start would be #nomoreplastic #nosingleuseplastic #noplasticbottles

Because I am a traveller I can look down on the birds and up at the fishes. I collect moments and can venture back in time to lost worlds. I seize life and simultaneously escape it at will. Because I am a traveller I envy no man at home.
