Water Water Everywhere and Not a Drop to Drink!

Being obsessed with ecology and environmental conservation is nothing to apologize for. In fact, if you are on the green bandwagon, you should be proud of yourself. And if you are of the younger generation, you can gloat about your world-consciousness and lack of self-centeredness, typical of your group. I hope I am a role model and mentor for others my age who are too much into social media and pop culture. The best I can say about social platforms is to use them to further the cause.

One of the biggest problems these days is water: it is non-potable or non-drinkable in many places in the world. It is a crime in this modern day and age. Water is life and we are depriving the third world from clean resources by not helping them overcome government neglect and abuse. Of course, we can make our voices heard and contribute to organizations addressing the water issue across the globe. We can also conserve water at home as evidence of our awareness and a symbol of human consciousness. If we continue to waste, we can hardly blame others for doing the same.

Why not start changing the world one person at a time, beginning at home. It is easy to use less water for cooking and in the bathroom, with guides like this: https://tanklesscenter.net/lower-electricity-bill/. You don’t need to run small loads of laundry, wash the car every three days, or water your plants after a rainstorm. If you flush the toilet constantly, you are depleting the local reserves way too fast. Why not do it every two times instead or get a low-flow unit.

There is another way to prove your worth in the conservation movement and show your values to friends and family. You can save energy on heating water in your home by using a digital system, preferably tankless, that controls quantity and average temperature throughout the day. You won’t be storing hot water on off days when you are not doing the dishes or taking that extra-long shower. Plus, you can reuse dish or bath water to wash the car or revive the lawn. They won’t know the difference! But you will be playing your part each and every day.
