8.1.1. Saving water at home


    There are millions of people all over the world who don’t have access to water, or, if they do, that water is unable to be used. About 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered with water, and 3% of it is actually freshwater that is fit for human consumption health hazards, and political conflict. It helps to preserve our environment. 

    Conserving water is important because it keeps water pure and clean while protecting the environment. Earth's fresh supply of water is locked in ice caps and glaciers, while 97,5% of the earth's water is saltwater. Conserving water involves refraining from water pollution. Failing to conserve water can eventually lead to a lack of an adequate water supply, which can have drastic consequences. These include rising costs and reduced food supplies.

    Water scarcity is one of the major challenges facing the world in the 21st century. Sustained access to water is linked to food, economic growth, hygiene, adaptation to climate change, and biodiversity loss. However, the increasing use of water resources around the world has severely degraded ecosystems, the goods, and services that they provide. If we do not save water, humans and other life forms will disappear and nothing will remain on the planet except some bacterias that can survive without water. Crops cannot grow without sufficient moisture, so if water supplies fall, food prices will rise and more people will experience food insecurity. People will also start to get sick and there will be a lack of hygiene. If we continue to use water on such a large scale, we will destroy aquatic life and further reduce food supplies, nature will also suffer from water scarcity.


    There are many ways to save water at home. If you poured a glass of water, do not spill it if you didn’t drink everything. You can leave the water until the next time or pour it into a flower. The flowers can also be watered with rainwater. While we are cooking, let’s try not to multiply water. Let's wash cars less often. Turn off the water more often in the shower when we don’t need it. Let’s lie down less often in the bathtub fully filled with water.

    Summarizing our insights into the importance of water, conservation, and what will happen if there is no more water, we want to protect water, apply ever-new ways to save water, educate others, and explain the benefits of water. We hope that these tips and information will be useful for you.
