Water is a limited resource in this world, we all know this. We recognize global warming is real but let’s take a minute and ask ourselves, are we doing enough to make a change? What is the crux of sustainability, it’s water preservation. In order to ensure all living beings don’t just survive but to enjoy the gift of life, it’s our responsibility to first ensure that these natural resources are still available for all and this will only happen when we become more aware of our lifestyle, wastage and consumption patterns.

Humans are not the only species on Earth that require water for survival and thinking we are is us being selfish. In fact, all existing species on this planet need water to live and survive. Without water, the aquatic species would cease to exist. It is imperative that we save water that is essential to our sustainability. By practicing basic water conservation tips, we can save marine life, help quality food produce grow, and save many other species. We can save our future generations.

Smart choices at home is a start to save water. We migrate towards the of use appliances that are mostly water and energy-efficient. Using simple water conservation tips can help reduce the usage of water by more than half. Pledging to just a bit of effort can make a world of difference.

One of the major ironies of our country is the paucity of clean water in a country that receives plentiful and widespread seasonal rainfall. This abnormality has often been credited to unfortunate rainwater harvesting initiatives. The limited places which have adopted rainwater harvesting practices have seen substantial leaps in water security and the health of their societies.

Rainwater harvesting has now become even more accessible with developing technologies that can be adapted to serve harvesting processes of any scale.

The domestic rainwater harvesting systems have now adopted newer designs as well as storage systems, conveyance systems, treatment systems, and distribution systems. Each of these features has been steadily upgraded over the years. The storage capacitor installed on the roofs of homes now come with specific designs to prevent external infection of the water. The catchment area is made from special natural materials, to preserve the natural freshness of the collected rainwater.

It’s 2020, the year where literally nothing isn’t quite going right. We are in a global pandemic, experiencing earthquakes and cyclones, we are seeing it all. All of this might be an indication, a wake-up call for us to stop taking nature for granted. We have to care about our planet.
