Counting on ….day 267

5th August 2022

With climate change a reality we have to find ways of living with droughts. There are many ways of using less water in the house – washing up with a kettle of hot water rather than drawing off water from the hot water cylinder before it runs hot. Having a wash rather than a shower. Washing clothes less often and use a quick wash setting.  Washing the floor with a damp cloth rather than a bucket of water. Another significant water saving action is to flush the toilet less often – after a quick pee just close the lid.

At the same time, if you can, save the water you have used – known as grey water – and use it on the garden.
