Kick 2013 off by helping to preserve water and treating it as a valuable resource. With rising living costs, population growth and pollution, the need to preserve water now has never been more important. Water plays an active role in making choices that will help make a difference to our environment, now and in the future.

Here are some tips on how you can save water around the house or garden:

  • In your garden, water your plants early in the morning or evening. When washing your car, use a bucket of water and park it on your lawn. Adding compost to your garden will help increase the amount of water available to your plants.
  • In your home, install water efficient taps and regularly check for leaking taps. When washing fruit and vegetables, half fill a sink to wash it rather than under running water. Make sure you don’t leave the tap running when you brush your teeth.
  • Install a rainwater tank as an additional water source for your home and garden

Being water wise is easy if you know how and what to do. The benefits of saving water include saving money and protecting our precious environment, so make water conservation your New Year’s Resolution!
