Save our water
1Use only as much water as you need when washing
  • Keep your showers short
  • Try not to turn the tap on full
2Fill the sink with water when washing dishes rather than leaving the tap running
  • Did you know that if you leave the tap running when you brush your teeth you could easily use more than 20 liters of water?
3Turn off dripping taps
  • Make sure that leaking pipes or taps are fixed quickly

  • Switch off lights when you leave a room
