World Water Day 2019- Water For All!
World Water Day falls on 22nd March every year, and is a global event that focuses on the importance of water, and reaffirms our commitment towards conservation and development of water resources. This year’s theme, ‘Leaving no one behind’, adapts the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with the goal of providing #WaterForAll by 2030.
Even today, billions of people are still living without safe water – households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories are struggling to survive and thrive. How can we tackle water crisis?
Here are some easy tips you can follow to save water in your own home.
- In toilets and shower- Install low or dual flush models, take shorter showers, install shower timers, and low-flow faucet aerators.
- Faucets and sinks- Opt for the dishwasher over hand washing, check faucets and pipes for leaks and turn off the water after you wet your toothbrush.
Extending your conservation measures:
- Trap rainwater by installing rainwater harvesting systems in your house or locality
- Reuse waste water wherever possible. For example, water drained from RO filters or air conditioners at home can be used for mopping the floor.
So start water conservation at home and make saving water part of your everyday family practice. Remember, every drop counts! Small changes can make a large impact, and we can leave a better future for the next generation.
Happy Water Day!
