Save Water! World Water Day 2007

Today, March 22, is World Water Day 2007.

We must remember that, as with all the non-renewable resources on Earth, we (E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E) are responsible for preserving it. It is not "ours" it is lend to us.

No water means no life (no brainier here), but sometimes we forget about it.

There are many ways to save water and to preserve it clean and free of pollutants:

  1. Take shorter showers (I declare myself guilty on this aspect and try to shorten my showers);
  2. Replace old high water-consuming toilets;
  3. Fix any water leaks in the house;
  4. If you see any leak at your work or at the street, notify it to the person(s) required to fix it;
  5. Water your garden early in the morning or in the evening, it is more efficient;
  6. Use less pollutant and fewer detergent to wash your clothes;
  7. Use less electricity (most of the electricity needs water in various forms to generate it),
  8. more, more more.

These are only a few ideas that came to my mind this moment but you can do a little research only in sites like Grist Magazine to find tips, solutions, and alternatives to preserve the vital fluid.

Tambien el gobierno de Mexico podria cobrar los costos reales del agua... con lo que pagamos ahorita es mas comodo pagar el desperdicio que arreglar una fuga.
