Green group urges consumers to cut on water use and waste

by DTI Iligan

Iligan City (24 February) -- Environmental group EcoWaste Coalition implemented water conservation measures and urged all consumers to do their share by cutting water use and waste.

This was in response to Malacanang's order directing government agencies to come up with water conservation measures due to the El Nino phenomenon this year.

Conserving water is not only a spontaneous response to the dry spell, but an essential one to conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gases from the use of fossil fuels used to pump out and deliver water into our homes and neighborhoods, the EcoWaste Coalition stated.

Some of the water ?tipid' (conservation) tips include:

1) Repair faucet leaks; fix all leaky pipes, water containers, and toilet tanks;

2) Place a brick, a jug with stones or a bottle filled with water inside the toilet tank to cut on water used in every flush;

3) Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily, put discarded tissues in the bin rather than in the toilet bowl;

4) Collect water dripping from air conditioners, use it in washing your mop, watering the plants, or flushing the toilet;

5) Do not let the water run when washing the dishes by hand, and collect the grey water for other purposes;

6) Water your plants after 5:00pm when temperature is cooler to minimize evaporation, water them only when necessary, spread a layer of mulch around plants and trees to retain water and reduce evaporation, and;

7) Never waste water served during meals, drink it up. (PIA LDN) [top]
