My Scoop On Saving Water at Home | Water Conservation @ Home | Scoop.it

Conserving water is critically important to the future of the sustainability of our environment. While major corporations are begining to work towards more sustainable development, we the people must do the same or all of their effort is wasted. There are literally billions upon trillions of dillions of ways to save water at home, and a solid 98% of them are simple and easy. Making a few little changes to your daily routine, such as shorter showers or turning off the tap whilst you brush your teeth can really add up if everyone joins together and does them. By saving water now, we preserve and ensure that our children and grandchildren won't go thirsty tomorrow.
