Did you know that the average British person uses 150 litres of water each everyday?
Did you know however that only 38% of the water we use in the UK is from our own resources?
Britain is one of the largest importers of water in the world which is why there is such a push to be more water efficient.
We can achieve this in many ways. Here are a few examples:
Turn Off The Tap
Running the tap whilst cleaning your teeth wastes 6 litres of water a minute. If all adults in the England and Wales stopped doing this we could save 180 mega litres a day.
21% of all water used in a home is spent on washing your clothes and dishes. By only doing full loads you will save litres and litres of water every wash.
Wash Your Veg
Instead of cleaning your veg by running them under a tap, fill a bowl and wash them in there instead. It will rid them of dirt and insects and save water at the same time.
Washing The Car
It is estimated that we use in excess of 100 litres of water when cleaning the car. Whilst this isn’t a daily occurrence or even a weekly one in most cases, it is still a huge water consumption event which can be avoided. How? It is all thanks to the invention of waterless car wash. Waterless car wash uses a mixture of emulsifiers, surfactants and lubricants to breakdown dirt and grime and a Carnuba wax which enhances shine and protection. This clever product combines all of these into one easy to apply spray. Waterless car wash will maintain your cars appearance for approximately 45days of average use. By switching to waterless car wash you negate the need for water at all. The hose pipe can stay in the garage on no more bucket loads of water will have to be traversed through the house and out the front door.
Waterless car wash products are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to water saving tools. To learn more about them head to www.go-waterless.co.uk or for more tips on how to save water head to www.waterwise.org.uk
