Save Water During World Water DayHelp save water during World Water Day and beyond. World Water Day takes place every year on March 22, as designated officially by the UN General Assembly in 1993.
The mission of World Water Day is to increase awareness of water related issues and to take action to improve the sustainability of and access to the world’s water supply. So how can you save water?
Change Water Habits
You can conserve water use, both indoors and out, just by making simple changes in your habits. If you’re a homeowner or renter with a front porch, use a broom instead of a hose to clean it. Do you work hard to keep a beautiful yard? Simply water it in the morning when temperatures are cooler so you lose less water to evaporation. Do you let your water run when you brush your teeth? Just turn it off until you need it. Get more tips like these.
