4 home water saving tips to help save water as the world marks world water day

As the world marks the world water day, here are tips on how to save water at home and conserve the environment:

1. Brush for 2 minutes twice a day, but turn off the tap.

While it is important to brush your teeth after every meal, brushing twice a day is quite effective and helps save water. It should however be noted that it is important to turn off the tap while brushing and turn it on only when ready to rinse. Dental Associations worldwide now recommend brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day. But turning off the Tap while brushing your teeth can save up to 11,350 litres of water per year – that’s the equivalent of 50,000 glasses of water!

2. Reduce showers by 2 minutes

Turning off the tap for 10 seconds while washing and scrubbing your hands can save both water and energy. In one year you can save up to 1500 litres of water and enough energy to power a 13-watt compact fluorescent light bulb for over 2 months.
