  • 13. Why do we need to save water?
    Most of the earth is salt water, this is water from the ocean. The ocean water is so salty, that the water we use to cook, wash, clean, drink etc, is called Fresh water. This water comes from rain, rivers and lakes. According to the charts there's less fresh water than saltwater, so it can end faster. That’s why we have to conserve and save our water.

    Take shorter showers, and don’t fill the tub all the way when you take a bath.
    The dishwater and washing machine are full each time when your family does a load.
    Don’t leave the garden hose on all night when you're watering plants.
    Problem:
    Letting out the water while you are washing your hands or face.
    Letting drop a faucet.
    Take long showers and fill the tube all the way while you're taking a bath.
    When you wash cloth or plates in the dish water and the water machine, one at the time and not all at once, you waste water.
    Leave the garden hose on all night while you are watering plants.
