My Scoop on Water Conservation at Home

Conserving water is very important in order to help save the remaining natural water in the world. In addition to helping the environment, this will also cut down the water bills you recieve each month. Only three percent of the water on Earth is fresh water usable to humans. That is not very much water considering that after the water is used once, it cannot be reused most of the time. It is possible to use the salt water on Earth but it is a very expensive process to desalinize the water. It is very important that we limit our use of water in order to conserve it.

 

There are many ways you can conserve water in your own home. For example, taking shorter showers is a good way to save water. Flushing the toliet makes up for twenty percent of water usage. If you go by the saying, "If it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down," you can save gallons of water each month. Also, turning off the water while shaving, brushing your teeth or shampooing can help. Also, to conserve water in the kitchen, instead of keeping the water running while washing the dishes, put a stopper in the sink and add soap water to wash them. These are small ways but it all adds up.

 

It is important to save water outside in your yard as well. Only water your grass and flowers when needed. Watering them in the evening or morning is beneficial because it avoids evaporation losses. A timer can help remind you to avoid watering more than needed. Using a nossle on your hose and securing it tightly can help prevent leakage and wasting water. All of these ideas can help lower the amount of water you waste and your water bill.
