How water conscious are you?
I try to conserve water as much as possible. I also try to teach my children how to be water conscious and not waste water.
A few obvious things I do include:
- Turning off the tap when I’m brushing my teeth
- Filling the sink when I’m doing the dishes
- Having my kids use the same bath water for their baths (they are never THAT dirty!!)
For several years now Colgate has made the initiative to educate and challenge Canadians to conserve water – especially while brushing their teeth! On their EveryDropCounts site they have a simple pledge that encourages you to be mindful of how much water you use.
I took the pledge and quickly learnt that my family will save 32 gallons (121.133 litres) of water everyday by turning off the tap when we brush!
By turning off the tap when brushing we’ll be saving tons of water every year. Check out my results!
Today is Wold Water Day. It’s the perfect day to start new habits and start conserving water.
Once you take the pledge to save water, you can easily share your results on Twitter and Facebook. Colgate hopes this will encourage your friends to be more aware of how much water they waste and maybe entice them to take the pledge too.
So, I dare you… take the pledge. Save litres of water every day.
To take the pledge, check out Colgate’s Every Drop Counts website now.
I’d love to know, have you taken the pledge? How many gallons of water per day will your family save?
