Conserving Water

Even though conserving water is not one of Singapore's national taps, it is still a way to increase water supply. There are many different ways to conserve water. 

 Here are a few ways in which you could do your part to conserve water.
  • When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing.
  • Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
  • Collect the water you use for rinsing fruits and vegetables, then reuse it to water houseplants.
  • Use a water-efficient showerhead. They're inexpensive, easy to install, and can save you up to 750 gallons a month,
There you go! Conserving water is as easy as 1,2,3! You are able to save money, and water too!

 Advantages of conserving water:
  • It reduces the risk of future water shortage as families and industries are encouraged to prevent water supplies from depleting
  • Reduces land demand as there is no need to devote more land to build more water facilities to meet the growing demand for water
  • It saves cost on building new water facilities
There are no such things as disadvantages in conservation of water because it is an act to make things better.

  1. Excellent topic! You know what? At first, water covered ¾ of the Earth's surface. However, due to overpopulation the water supply has dropped drastically. In fact, we are still lucky for we get enough supply of water, because in some countries, drought is their major problem! Conserving water really is a must!
