World Water Day is tomorrow, March 22nd!
As citizens of the world it is paramount that we conserve the earth’s resources and be respectful of our footprint on the earth – especially when traveling.
In honor of World Water Day, here’s a few simple ways that you can save water while you’re traveling:
- Re-use dishes and soak, don’t scrub: many plates and dishes don’t need a full wash to be re-used, and scrubbing hard-to-clean dishes under running water is a waste – so soak them straight after use for an easy and waste-free clean up
- Switch taps off: brushing your teeth? Turn the tap off whilst you’re scrubbing
- Save by sharing a load whilst washing clothes: if you need to use the washing machines, make sure you have a full load. If you’ve just got a few things to wash, buddy up to share the load
- Reduce your average shower time: the average shower time is 8 minutes. Reduce your shower time to 5 minutes and save 23 litres of water. Sharing a shower is also a good move!
