Simple Life : WATER

     Water is life. It is arguably our most precious resource. As our climate warms and population grows in coming decades, water will become even more precious. We must not waste it. Here are some conservation ideas.


1.HOME FOOD PRODUCTION USES LESS WATER THAN INDUSTRIAL FOOD PRODUCTION: This should provide us all with further motivation for growing as much of our own food as possible.

2.TAKE SHORTER SHOWERS: Keep showers to three or four minutes, or less.

3.GET SOME WATER TANKS : As your home food production grows, it is likely that you will need to expand your water resources. Getting some water tanks will greatly reduce or nullify the amount of water from the grid that you use on your garden.

4.WATER INTENSIVE APPLIANCES: Appliances like dishwashers and washing machines use a lot of water. By being thoughtful about how many dishes you use, and not washing clothes unnecessarily, water use can be greatly reduced.
