EVERY DROP COUNTS…
WHY WATER CONSERVATION MATTERS
Water is the driving force of all nature, and unfortunately for our planet, supplies are beginning to run dry, at an alarming rate.
When looking for life on other planets, scientists look for the presence of water there. Thus, we can confidently say – “Every Drop Counts”.
Water is our most precious resource, but also a finite resource. While most of the planet is covered in water, less than 1% is available fresh water for human consumption.
Changing climate will also have a severe impact on water resources, rain patterns, droughts etc.
We should do our best to conserve water for three main reasons.
*Water conservation reduces water and energy use and saves households money.
*Conserving water now allows cities and regions to plan for more efficient use of the water resources in the future. If most of an area’s clean water is wasted, there will be less water for future generations to use especially if water is pumped up faster than it can be replenished.
*The less water we use or waste, the less clean water will become contaminated.
After all, every individual can make a difference in the effort to conserve water, a most precious resource.
