3 Areas in Your Home Where You Can Conserve Water

3 Areas in Your Home Where You Can Conserve Water

Water conservation is an important topic that can benefit your entire community. This is particularly relevant during drier periods, such as the summer months or in a unseasonable drought. Those of us that live in a particularly arid region understand that we can be susceptible to drought conditions and that water can be hard to come by. This can be exacerbated by other typical summer activities, such as mowing the lawn, BBQ’s and filling pools. If you are looking for drinking vessels for a party, look for plastic cups for sale in your local area. Here are three areas where you can ease the pressure on your communities precious water supply.

Water Conservation

 1. In the Garden

All plants, to a certain extent, require water, but many people actually over water their plants. By making a few smart changes in how you water, both your plants and your community will benefit. Firstly, only water slowly so that the soil has time to absorb the water. Next, when using sprinklers, only use ones that deliver larger droplets of water that are delivered close to the ground. When you run the tap to heat water for washing, why not have a container or bowl handy to collect the cold water for watering plants. Finally, consider adjusting the blades on your lawnmower so that your grass will be longer. It is a proven fact that longer grass requires far less water in order to grow.

2. In the Bathroom?

We all like to stay clean, but you can still maintain your standards of hygiene and save water at the same time. Showering for 5 minutes uses much less water than taking a bath. When showering why not give yourself a good soaking, turn off the water, then lather up, before turning the water back on and for a final rinse off? Similarly, when washing your hair, make sure not to leave the water running entire time, and you will save an incredible amount of water. Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth and save as much as four litres of water per minute.

3. In the Kitchen?

It is vitally important to wash vegetables correctly, but many people wash them under a running tap which uses a lot of water. Instead, wash the veggies in a bowl and then give them a rinse off in a colander. Consider reducing the amount of water that you use to cook your veggies in, as it will use less water and your veggies will have more taste and nutrients intact. If you fancy a change, why not purchase an electric steamer, as it only uses a small amount of water and it is a much healthier way to cook vegetables and rice. When defrosting food, try to plan a little further ahead, and you can defrost slowly in the fridge rather than running food under a tap.

Best water, service and price! Dealt with Hayley through email who was efficient and friendly and Mary over the phone more recently to add more bottles to be delivered and she was easy to understand and prompt ! Love having good cold water in Perths summer heat and it’s made better when it’s so easy to access with their delivery service and the great customer service they provide.

When your daughter mentions that the water at Mummy's house is better than at Daddy's house you know your onto something good. If a 5yo can taste the difference in the water quality what's that say about what is coming out of our taps. Thanks for making the small changes I've made in our health easy. Delivery guy is always polite and happy to carry the bottles to where I store them. Staff, on the few times I've had to visit the Wangara office, are always polite. Really if you want to do something good for your family then Aussie Natural Spring Water is a no brainer. You won't regret the change.
