Saving Water


Why do we need to save water?
We’re placing more and more demands on the amount of water we have. Climate change and an ever growing population means the way we currently use water is damaging our natural environment and is not sustainable. Getting water into our taps has another cost too - carbon emissions from treating and transporting water. An average UK family uses about 500 litres of water per day, which results in more than 1.5 tonnes of carbon escaping into the atmosphere every year. There are simple steps that we can all take now to reduce the amount of water being wasted, to protect our precious water resources for the future.
