Saving Water

Water covers 70 percent of the planet, but less than two percent is fresh and available for human consumption. The 7,000,000,000-plus residents of earth have to share that water. Plus, that volume of water isn't necessarily distributed equally, some places have plenty and others not enough. The downside of this inequity is that those with plenty often practice wasteful consumption habits. And when I say "those," I mean "us." In the United States tap water costs around $4 per 1000 gallons. In my mind, that is too cheap. Because water wasting doesn't have a big impact on our bank accounts, it is easy to miss that a running faucet is the flow of dollars. Yet, saving water does translate into saving money, more so with a strategic approach. We are asking you to watch, consider, and start saving where you can.
