5 Simple Steps to Preserve Water

There’s lots of eco friendly stuff available, today. We are lucky in that respect. Finally, people are starting to actually care about the condition of the planet and how we will leave it for future generations. Here, you can learn about one of the best things you can do for the environment and for people…save water.

The short list: 1. Take shorter showers 2. Eliminate water leaks 3. Water your yard at night 4. Get a tap water purifier 5. Replace plastic water bottles with glass

You can take shorter showers. Or get a shower head that restricts water flow. Hardly rocket science, but showers send a lot of water down the drain.

Be sure that there are no leaks around your home. Take a crescent wrench and fresh washers with you as you inspect your faucets and water valves. You’ll be surprised at how often the fitting nuts are slightly loose and washers are worn out.

Use landscaping designs that require little or no watering, instead of grass. If you do water, do it in the evening, rather than the morning. During the day water evaporates. During the evening, it seeps down into the ground. You won’t need to water as often to keep things green.

Instead of buying bottled water, purchase a home purifier and drink tap water. In the US, a bottle of water costs between 25 cents and $2. The same amount of tap water costs less than a penny. Installing a home purifier costs less than a dime per day. The average bottled beverage drinker spends at least $2 per day on sodas and other beverages.

When it comes to eco friendly stuff, a home purifier is the ultimate item for anyone that wants to go green. It is also one of the most affordable. Older purifiers included a reverse osmosis step, which was very expensive. Today’s purifiers include multiple steps that are just as, and in some cases, more effective than reverse osmosis, for a fraction of the cost.

That’s another thing that science is doing for us, today. Scientists are helping us go green by making it more affordable. Some people are simply lazy. They just don’t care about all of the trash that they create. But, even they like to save money. The next time that you see someone drinking water out of a plastic bottle, tell them that they could save about $1000 per year, if they bottled their own, at home.

Tell them that the plastic is a source of chemical contamination. They can buy reusable glass containers (more eco friendly stuff) and avoid exposure to those contaminants. Tell them how much better it tastes to drink out of a glass container.

When you or your friends decide to buy a home purifier, be sure to read the product performance data. The best purifier protects your health by reducing the widest possible range of contaminants. It is eco friendly stuff and it’s good for your health.
