We generally take water for granted especially during summer. Being water efficient does not mean you need to make big changes in your daily routine, a few minor changes in your day to day activities can make a big difference.
When there is a shortage of rain during summer, it is very important to consider water-saving tips which will save money as well as water usage. There are lots of reasons to welcome spring and summer with outdoor fun activities. This spring let’s try these tips and save water so that chances of running out of water go minimal.
Tip #1: Fix leaky taps and don’t lose a drop!
We generally open the tap and wait for the warm water to come. Don’t we all do this? This is a very common activity but if we make a little bit change that is placing a bowl below the tap and collect water until warm water starts flowing, we can recycle that cold water rather than wasting. The water can be reused to feed office plants or garden. Also, if your business uses a dishwasher, remember to check whether it’s full before turning it on and be sure to use the eco setting if you have the option.
Tip #2: Green garden but with less water
Summer is the time when we all understand the importance of a green environment. We can experiment in our office with drought-resistant plants that require less water and easy to keep them alive. Bring some greenery into your space with the plants like succulents and many options are available.
Tip #3: Shorten your showers and use water when you need it
In the hot, sticky and humid weather, everyone wants to stay in the shower for a longer time. But saving your shower time only by a minute can save a good amount of water. If we use a little amount of water for shower and washing cars, it will be very easy to save water in summer. Did you know that hoses use up to 6 gallons of water every minute when you leave them on?!
Tip #4: Place your drinking water in the fridge/Fill up a jug of water
Coldwater is more refreshing than water straight from the taps. Rather than running the tap and waiting for cold water, it will be good if you fill the bottle or jug and keep in the fridge. It will not only save water but it will save you time when you are very thirsty.
