#CuttingPaani at Home: An effective way of water conservation

March 25, 2018 Motions and Emotions 0 Comments

Have you watched this video? Sometimes kids teach us lot many important things in life which we often ignore.

One day our daughter said "today we have learnt water cycle and water sources at school. Mam asked what are the sources of water? One of my friend told Water Tanker". She then asked me "Is that the correct answer, mamma?"

A simple question made me realize that we are heading towards a horrifying future of zero day. In big cities like Bangalore we are facing a severe water crisis. Level of ground water is decreasing very fast. In mega cities, most of the households are dependent on water tanker. Hence, water tanker has become the source of water to the kid who has seen it supplying water everyday. Actually the kids learn things which they see at their surroundings.

Water bodies are drying up or they are heavily polluted by sewage water, industrial pollutants or by various human activities.  Have we ever thought what are you going to gift to our future generation? Aren't we endangering our future generation towards uncertainty? It is the high time we conserve water for ourselves to save our future generation. 

Conserving drinking water is the first step which we often ignore. #CuttingPaani is a wonderful initiative by Livpure to conserve drinking water.

It is our tradition to welcome a guest with a full glass of water. We also serve a full glass of water along with a meal. It is observed that most of the time people do not drink the full glass of water. So most of the time the remaining glass of water we throw off and waste the water. We can save this water by serving half glass water and if someone asks more we can serve more.

Here are some simple tips to save water which will indirectly save our future generation:
  • We take water bottles to school or work. Many of us unable to finish the water in the bottle and finally we end up throwing the remaining water before cleaning the bottle. Instead of throwing we can use this for watering the plants or for washing clothes.
  • Recently I was reading in newspaper that a start up has come up with an innovative idea to save water. In restaurants, they always serve with a full glass of water. The company have started marked glasses (just like the marked medicine cups) for restaurant to serve only required water upto the mark. We can also use small cups or glasses to serve water and if required we can refill them again.
  • Do not leave the kitchen when you have put water on gas for boiling. Because if you forget to switch off the gas on time the water will evaporate and you will loose that water. 
  • While purifying the water some water purifiers waste a certain percentage of water. You can take out that waste water in a bucket and use it for watering plants, washing cars or for other household works.
  • If you have take out excess ice to make your drink and cannot use all. Then instead of throwing the ice put them in water jug and later can use for multiple household purposes.
  • Use a bucket instead of hose to clean your car or water the plants. It saves lot of water.
  • We often waste water by running the tap while cleaning utensils. We can close the sink outlet and fill it up with water and clean the utensils without wasting excess water.
  • Fix the leaks of the taps to save water. 
  • Let's grow the healthy habit to save water in our kids. Ask them to close the tap while brushing their teeth or use the bucket instead of shower taps for taking bath. 
Let's come together and make a big success to this novel initiative of  #CuttingPaani by Livepure. Even saving single drop of water can save life because little drops of water makes a mighty ocean.
