Water conservation tips

2016-03-23 06:00

IN view of the drought, here are ways to raise awareness about water conservation:

• Create fun ways to remind your family to close taps and use water sparingly.

• Avoid buying toys like water pistols or water cannons, because they waste a tremendous amount of water and teach children the responsible use of water.

• Encourage friends and neighbours to become more water conscious.

• Promote water conservation in community newsletters,
at school, on local bulletin

• Swop cuttings of drought-resistant indigenous plants with friends.

• Remove thirsty alien invader plants from your garden.

• Speak about what you’ve learnt, or what you do to save water whenever you have an opportunity.
