    I have turned off the water faucet instead of running it while brushing my teethe. It isn't a lot of water saved but over time it is a lot.

  • REFLECTION QUESTION
    Waterwise Beautification Collect Rain Water
    Although three-fourths of our planet is covered by water, only a small fraction is suitable for use, and yet growing populations are placing more demands on this finite resource. If you had to collect, store, clean and pump your own water, as earlier generations did, how would that change the way you use it today?
