Water one of the most important resource of life, without which no living organism can survive on earth, so why we are letting it get waste or polluted .Do we not need this precious resource for generations to come, are we just killing our future .
Today we are not putting our effort to safe this limited resource. The situation is so poor that in US average water consumption is 80 to 100 gallons per person per day where as in Sub Saharan countries one has to walk about 7 miles to get only of 5 gallon of water per family. In developing countries every 15 seconds a child dies due to water related diseases. The World Bank predicts by 2025, two-third of total population would run short of fresh water. Even today in India, there are about 76 million people without access to safe water that clearly shows our future is not at all safe .
.So, let us start thinking about little way by which we can save huge. On an average a person drinks 7 to 8 glass of water a day and many a times they may drink only half and leaves the rest .By this a least amount of 1 glass of water on an average is wasted by one person when multiplied by population of India is 132.42 glasses of water each day . That will turn into 317808000 liters of water per day ,which can save nearly 7.6 billion glass of water per day. Now to execute this initiative all have to take care that we take only according to our needs and pour rest of it into plants our trees as what we give to nature, nature will give us back. It is an easy way with very little efforts which only require little concern towards nature.
Effective conservation can also be done through-
- Less usage of packed drinking water because unused water remain in plastic, which is a fresh refined water, and result in wastage.
- Using of buckets rather than having showers as in there is great wastage of water.
- Repairing leaking tap as every drop counts.
- Putting all extra water into plants and trees.
In addition, many more small steps can turn the situation better
But this initiative should be taken by all as one person cannot save water for coming billions but billions can save for coming trillions and this is what we need today. All should come together irrespective of financial conditions; in name of betterment of human being
