Saving Water in your Home

Why should we use water efficiently?

Saving water helps our environment, the planet and our bank balance.

Watch Laura Wells, Environmental Advocate, explain why saving water is so important.

“Have you ever stopped to think how often you rely on water in every day life and how much you use? And what about the water that comes out of your taps…

And have you considered how climate, weather and population impact this water supply?

Most of us take water for granted. We expect it to flow out of our taps day in day out and we rarely give it a second thought. But it’s a precious resource, and one we all need to use more wisely.

We all want to do the right thing, but life gets in the way and the problem’s not that big surely?

Here are three facts about why efficiency matters and three easy ways you can easily change your water habits today.

  • It’s better for the environment – by using water efficiently rivers keep flowing, dams stay full and groundwater supplies stay healthy for wildlife and plants.
  • It’s better for the Planet – capturing, treating and pumping less water to our homes uses less energy.
  • It’s better for the bank balance – reducing your water bills and by using less hot water, reduces your energy bills as well.”
