Okay, so my biggest pet peeve has to be that how easily we ignore our responsibility to contribute to the society and the environment! Charity begins at home and that’s the same rule for natural resource conservation. Let me talk about water today and I should be the last person to talk about electricity usage so I would not do that.
Let us take an honest look around our house and calculate how much water we could recycle if we make a little conscious effort.
I conducted an experiment to prove my point. The idea was inspired by one of my neighbors but the thought stayed with me. So, for the past couple of months, I have made a conscious effort to collect the water we use to wash vegetables or while cooking and even the RO’s waste.
I started with using the non-RO water to water my plants but I stopped doing that because I ended up collecting all that water but did not have so many plants to water. So, I decided to instead utilize the collected water in bathrooms. And, surprisingly I did not have to use the flush at all.
