How to reduce your water footprint

How to reduce your water footprint

While many of us don’t need to think about it on a daily basis, clean, fresh water is a scarce resource. As the world population grows, individual and business water footprints become a more vital statistic.

Water footprints are a calculation of the water used by an individual or business, both directly in the sense of drinking water and supply chain usage, and indirectly, relating to the water used to produce food and products. Taking steps to reduce your water footprint is an important step towards reducing your overall environmental impact.

Reducing your Direct Water Usage

Perhaps the easiest water usage to address is direct water usage. At home, consider investing in water-saving shower heads and toilets. Turn off the sink while brushing your teeth or washing your face. Outside of the home, try to limit the amount of water used in your garden or while watering your lawn.

When addressing direct water usage in the office, ensure sinks are never left running. When doing dishes in office kitchen or break rooms, be mindful of the running water. Like homeowners, you may want to invest in water-saving appliances. If renting your space,
speak to the building owners about the possibility of water-saving appliances.

Reducing Indirect Water Usage

While indirect water usage is somewhat more difficult to address, there are a few steps individuals and businesses can take to address this usage.

First and foremost, consider the water used by the companies that supply your food and products. For families, this may mean eating more vegetables than meat, as meat processing requires large amounts of water.

For both families and businesses, checking labels on processed foods and beverages may offer some insight into the amount of water used in the production of your food. If you find you can’t get the information you need from labels, consider researching the companies from which you buy your products. Whether this refers to processed foods and beverages in the home and office, or supplies you use to run your business, using suppliers who make their environmental impact a priority will help you lower your water footprint.

As the world population continues to grow, watching our environmental impact, in particular our water usage, becomes a necessity. Whether in the home or business, these simple tips can help you reduce your water footprint and improve your overall environmental impact.

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.
