So why is water to valuable?
Why is it so important for people to learn how to conserve water? Water is irreplaceable. We can’t live without it.
We all use water without really thinking about it. Every time we turn on the tap, flush the toilet or put the washing machine on, we’re using a precious and limited resource. We have all the water now that we will ever have. At first this might not seem an issue, however 97% of the the water on the earth is salt water which is not suitable for drinking with only 3 percent being fresh water. And only one percent of that which is drinking water. The other two percent is locked in ice caps and glaciers.
With such a small percentage of available drinking water, it’s important that we learn to conserve now, to save water. To think of future generations who will not have a sufficient supply of water unless we become more concerned with how we use our water today.
This brief wants me to explore ways in which I can change how people think about water and what they could possibly be wasting.
In order to do this, I think it will be crucial to teach the implications of wasting such a valuable source. And show the benefits of making small changes to our habits and the ripple effect it will have on our future water supply. In order for people to become interested, they need to see the positives and benefits it will make to them possibly through to even saving money on their water bill.
