How many of your daily activities require you to use water? Stop and think about it for a second. Can you imagine lasting an entire day without any water to perform the most basic of tasks, like washing your hands?
We use water for a lot more than just drinking. We use it to do our laundry, make coffee, upkeep our yards, clean ourselves, clean just about everything else and much more. To increase awareness around responsible water usage — and how lucky we are to have access to safe, clean water — from October 6 through October 8, we want you to imagine a day without water.
These days are a time to think about water’s importance in our lives and to reflect upon what we can do to conserve our most essential resource.
Change starts at the smallest level, and you can imagine a day without water just by changing some of your daily habits and practices at home. Our WaterSmart Tips page is a great place to start with plenty of everyday tips on how to reduce your water usage and value how we use water in our lives:
● Brush your teeth without running your sink
● Check your home’s pipes and faucets for leaks, which can account for wasting up to 140 gallons of water per week
● Sweep the driveway instead of using a hose
● Time your showers! Your household can even make a game out of challenging one another to take the shortest and most efficient shower
See? There are plenty of ways for you to get involved!
