Aaaah, the summer!
Brighter days (and smiles!), BBQs with pals, trips to nearby beaches, sandals and dresses all-day-every-day, kids playing outside, colourful cocktails, paddling pools… Wait! Paddling pools?
Paddling pools are one of summer’s favourites however they are also one of the main causes of water waste in Ireland.
But because we are all about enjoying life (and summer!) without harming our planet, I have decided to talk about how to avoid water waste during the hottest months of the year.
In general, we take water and water supply for granted when in fact supply is in high demand and of limited resource – did you know that only 0.3% of the Earth’s natural water can actually be used for human consumption?
Today, more than half of our daily water consumption at home originates from the bathroom and the toilet.
The good news is – water waste is something we can control... The bad news is – we need to get better at controlling water waste!
Let’s save water together, one drop at a time:
Water conservation is a must and everyone can play an important role, from a toddler learning how to brush her teeth to large businesses learning how to make and sell products in a more resource-aware manner.
It is essential that our water supply resources are conserved if we are to avoid restrictions and outages like the ones a lot of us faced during previous years.
Our planet will appreciate every drop (!) of help.
