Aud- Talks | How to Save Water

For the past one to two months, Water, Hot, Warm, Fire, Haze and Mosquito are the popular words that you have either said or heard it countless times a day.

Unusual drought had came to Malaysia. Weather is crazily hot and there is no rain at all for such a long period. Water level of all dams are decreasing at light speed. Several places are out of water for days. Plus it is so hazy everywhere! Can hardly breath nowadays.. T_T

This is the time when people realized they have lost something so important that they don't even bother to give a damn in the normal days. Human can live without food for more than 7 days but could not survive without water for 3 days. Look just how important water is!

Water levels are decreasing and it is not raining and the matter of fact is that no one can help. We can only help ourselves, but how? Well, I am not a wizard, I can not give you rain, but I can give you the ways to save water.

Here are some ways (but not all) to save water usage, you may find same relevant and some not quite but that's not the point. Pick those you find useful and practice them as habit. This is a long-term project.

1. Have some used ice? Don't throw them, put them on flower pots as water for the plants

2. Don't wash fruits or veggies with a running tap.
