Why saving water is important
Although 71% of Earth’s surface is covered by water, only 2.5% of it is fresh and drinkable. Less than one third of this fresh water is available for us. The rest is beyond our reach – it’s frozen in glaciers or polar ice caps, or is deep within the earth. In other words, if 100 litres represent the world's water, about half a tablespoon of it is fresh water available for our use.
The good news is that it is really easy to save water. You don’t have to change your whole lifestyle – just follow our simple tips to reduce the amount of water that you use at home. For example: by saving water indoors and outdoors you can help make the world a better place. In addition, saving water can reduce your personal water bill.
