Tips on saving water at home


Air, water, food and shelter are the four basic needs of a human being to survive.  Water plays an important role in human lives.  There is no shortage of water on earth.  Most of our planet is covered by water , but a very little of that water is available for humans to drink.

About 70% of the Earth's surface is covered by water but all these water are not safe for drinking purposes . Fresh and clean water is a limited resource. Only 2.5% of that total 70% water is fresh but only 1% of the total water resources on Earth are available for human use.

There are about 7.6 billion human beings living on Earth . Every human being need gallons of water everyday for their different uses like bathing,  washing clothes,  cooking etc. Above all a human body needs half a gallon of water everyday which equals to 2 liters of water. Which means 15.2 billion litters of pure and clean drinking water are required everyday on Earth to fulfill the thrust of 7.6 billion people.

The little amount of fresh water available on Earth is more than enough to fulfil the thrust of the entire population of the World.  But in the near future it will be difficult to get fresh water because of the big population explosion.

There are many places on Earth where we can get fresh water and can eat  directly from the tap.  But there are also some places where water contains many harmful chemicals and is not fit to drink.

Fresh water is not equally distributed on Earth.  Some places on earth remain flooded whole year and some suffers from drought. In both the situation pure drinking water is a crisis . So either the glass of water is free or paid we need to save the wastage of water. This way we can save drinking water for future. Saving water means saving lives.

Tips on saving water at home:


💧 Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth.

💧 Turn off the tap while rubbing your hands with soap while washing your hands.

💧 When it rains, collect the rain water in buckets . Use it to clean or wiping  your house's floor or for flushing the toilet.
