Why Water Conservation?
Water is a necessary part of survival for all living things. We need water, animals need water, and plants need water. Without it, we would all shrivel up and die. Gosh, that’s a little extreme isn’t it? Don’t we have a lot of water on this earth?
Well, sure we do. Take a look at this fun comparison of the size of the earth to the amount of water though. I was actually quite surprised
What can we do?
I would say in terms of wasting water, our bathrooms, mixed with 3 kids, is the biggest culprit. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve gone to check on the girls only to find them all in the bathroom filling buckets and toys full of water to go dump somewhere else in the house. It’s gotten so bad, that at one point we completely shut off the water to their sink. Since it is also our only bathroom while we remodel our master, it meant a bit of inconvenience for everyone to wash hands and brush teeth in the kitchen. But it worked to keep the water use to a minimum, and our carpets dry.
