Water that most precious commodity - makes up 75% of the human body...

Water is one of our most precious commodities, making up 75% of the human body and covering 71% of the Earth’s surface. However, it has been calculated that as little as 0.02% of that water is actually fresh water available for human consumption and that 50% of the world's population will face water shortages by 2025.

Each person in the UK currently uses about 150 litres of water every day; this has been rising by 1% per year since 1930. Most of the water we use is wasted, being flushed down the toilet or left to flow down the sink while we clean our teeth.

By making just a few small changes to your liquid lifestyle you will be helping to cut the demand on our most important natural resource, as well saving money on your household bills.

Water way to save indoors:

Reduce your toilet flushing water wastage.

Fit a flow reducer to your shower head.

Save water by shrinking your shower.

Use rain or bath water for flushing your toilet.

Save water when washing the pots.

Fit spray taps to reduce water consumption.

Use any energy-saving settings available on your washing machine

Don’t boil more water than you need.

There are a 101 ways to save water.

We need to learn them all.

If every household in Britain cut one toilet flush per day we’d save a total of 170 billion litres of water in a year!

The more people make changes towards a greener lifestyle, the bigger the impact we all have on the environment.

So spread the word!

Especially bright, brilliant new ones!
