We highly recommend “WAYS TO SAVE WATER” – an excellent article written by Sarah F. Berkowitz, as posted on Mother Nature Network, March 02, 2011 (link to article at the end of this blog).
You will find interesting comments and Sarah’s list of ten ways to conserve our precious water resources.
According to Sarah, “The easy access and plentiful availability of water in America and other highly developed countries can be blamed for the often wasteful attitude toward water use. For some consumers, it takes a major drought to make them aware of water waste.” and she points out ways that we all can, by utilizing “small steps” daily, make a “big difference”, while at the same time feel good about “preserving our limited water supply.”
Sarah’s article points out ways to save water in your kitchen and laundry room.
Sarah has a hint for recycling your fish tank water and also one for lawn mowing.
I whole-heartedly agree with Sarah that these steps will help us “contribute to world-wide water conservation efforts” – and I believe they will save us money as well.
