Our first post (Save Water) was launched last Wednesday. Each Wednesday, we will post a way that we can collectively help the environment. We invite all of you to reach out to us with specific ways that you help the environment, or even your personal story -- we would be happy to share it on our blog & in our album!
If you don't have a Facebook page, here's what we shared:
It's one of those lessons that we get from childhood-- turn the faucet off while you're brushing your teeth.
A mere 1% of water on Earth is available for drinking. Water is treated as an unlimited element, when in fact we are using it more quickly than it is being produced.
Conserving water not only helps the environment, but can help us financially on a global scale.
Here are some ways you can save water:
- Check for leaks in your plumbing.
- Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth, washing your face, during dishes, & other activities when possible.
- Shorten your showers.
- Only wash full loads of dishes & laundry.
- Only water the lawn when it is necessary.
We appreciate your interest and contribution in preserving the environment! Please share your favorite ways to conserve water in the comment section here or on our Facebook page!
