Take care of the water at home. By consuming too much water, we have a significant impact on the health of the planet. You can start taking measures right now to reduce your water consumption. If you live in a region with a shortage of water, this is even more important for the health and prosperity of your region. Here’s what you need to do:
Check if you have any water leaks. If there is, fix it. A leaky valve can lead to a waste of a large amount of water.
Install water-saving devices on the fans and in the bathrooms. Installing a shower watering can with reduced water consumption is quite suitable for a start.
Do not wash the dishes with the water on all the time. Use a method that will allow you to spend less water on washing dishes.
Block access to water in the dishwasher to avoid leaks. It doesn’t have to be on all the time.
Replace the old toilet bowls with new ones that reduce water consumption.
Dishwashers and washing machines should only be used when fully loaded. Otherwise, an excessive amount of water will be consumed.
Do not use too much water to water the lawn.
Turn off the water while brushing your teeth.
- contract the amount of chemicals used. The chemicals that we use to wash, when cleaning the house, for washing the car and wherever else, are washed off and absorbed into the ground or grass, ending up in the plumbing system. Since many people use highly potent chemicals, they cause significant harm to watercourses and aquatic flora and fauna. Chemicals are even more dangerous for people, so do everything in your power to reduce their use. Here are some ways:Find out about alternatives to home cleaning products that do not contain dangerous chemicals. For example, a product consisting of white vinegar and water (1:1) is suitable for almost all types of cleaning as well as products from the store. Baking soda and salt are also cheap, non-toxic cleaning products.If it is impossible to find an alternative to the chemical, try to use the minimum amount necessary to achieve the required cleanliness and disinfection.Instead of using chemical-filled shampoos and soaps, try making them yourself.Instead of using pesticides and herbicides, try to get rid of weeds and pests naturally.Dispose of toxic waste properly. Paint, engine oil, ammonia, as well as many other substances can not just be washed off on the ground or grass. They penetrate deep into the ground and end up in groundwater. Contact your local sewage treatment plant to find out the location of the nearest toxic waste dump.
