How to reduce your water footprint ?
Don’t lose a single drop !
In order to not let doom and gloom get you down, here are a few simple tips to reduce your water consump tion on a daily basis
Think about swapping meat based recipes by vegetarian meals. It takes 5 to 20 times more water to produce one kilogram of meat than one kilogram of cereals.
Install a water saving device in the toilet cistern. This can save up to 45 000 liters every year, or rather, the amount of water one per- son drinks in 25 years!
- Return unused drugs to the chemist. Drugs thrown in the rubbish or down the toilets can contaminate the water cycle.
Use environment‐friendly hygiene and cleaning products as this will avoid the im- pact of tens of thousands of chemical subs- tances on our water resources.
Reduce the amount of bottled water you drink. Each year, 100 billion dollars are spent on buying water bottles. Just a quarter of this sum would be sufficient to supply drinking water to those who are deprived of it.
Use both sides of paper, and only print what is necessary! Don’t forget that it takes 10 liters of water to make one sheet of paper.
Spend less time under the shower, and ta- king baths should be banished! By reducing of 3 minutes the time you spend under your shower, you save around 35 liters of water every time, or, in other terms, 301 kg of CO2 in one year.
Use thermostatic mixing taps. These allow to regulate the temperature more quickly, the- refore saving between 10 and 30 % water.
- Shut the tap! Water flows at the rate of around 10 liters a minute. If you leave the tap running while you brush your teeth, that’s about 10 000 liters wasted every year.
