Conserve Our Most Precious Resource
March 22nd is World Water Day! Water is earth’s most precious resource. There are many ways we all can use water more responsibly. We each can do our part to ensure there is plenty of clean water available to all! Below are some tips and items to help you contribute to this important cause.
The World Water Day initiative grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March of each year as the World Day for Water.
Water Saving Tips
#1 When washing dishes by hand, don’t let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.
#2 Water your lawn and garden in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler to minimize evaporation.
#3 Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
#4 Use the garbage disposal sparingly. Compost vegetable food waste instead and save gallons every time.
#5 For cold drinks keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap. This way, every drop goes down you and not the drain.
