World Water Day

World Water Day
Today, March 16th is World Water Day. Countries like Singapore participates on this yearly event to brought awareness on how to conserve water.

Just before I left home for work, I saw a chart from a morning show here in Singapore that shows the consumption of an average Singapore household. It was shocking to see that shower consumption is much higher than laundry consumption.

I have to admit that I spend a lot of time in the shower but if we collectively spend less time at the shower that means a lot of water saved.

Honestly, saving water can be a hassle. But bits of hassle can actually save you more utility bills money. So here are some of my ideas:

1) Take a shower for less than five minutes or better use a water pail instead of the shower.

2) Collect the used water from your dish washing and use it to water your plants.

3) Collect rain water and use it to water your plants. If you have good portable water purifying system, use it instead of your tap water.

Do you have any water saving tips? I'll be glad to hear it from you.

It's unfortunate that conserving water is neglected often because we don't experience the shortage. I have heard of the water day related activities here in Philippines. Thanks for sharing this! I hope really that we will all be very conscious on how we use water because studies showed that soon enough we will drain our resources.

Haha I couldn't imagine of how did they know about identifying the statistics between the use of laundry and showering. But whatever it might be, this is a nice thing to commemorate the importance of water.
