We can all play a part towards Water Conservation!

Having travelled to various countries throughout the years, I have learnt to value the water that we are blessed with here in Singapore. We are probably one of the the countries that can even drink water off our running taps cause it's that clean! I remember visiting counties where we only drank bottled waters and used bottled waters to wash our faces and brush our teeth! These was then reaffirmed when I attended Singapore International Water Week in June 2014.

At the event, I met young water leaders from around the world to engage in discussions on global water issues. They shared of the water issues they faced in their countries and they were really impressed with our water technology and how we protected water.

I am thankful that ever since I was a little girl, my mother would teach my sister, Zonia and I about conserving water.

The first that she taught us as little girls was probably to use a cup to hold water when we brush our teeth, instead of letting water run down the sink.

We should also off the tap when we are soaping ourselves in the shower room.

If the tap is on, this would result in even more water waste than when we brush our teeth!!

I remember even when we had a domestic helper previously, my parents also educated her to wash the family's car with a bucket instead of a running hose! This tradition has followed us for years!

When my mom puts our clothes to wash, it's only when the laundry basket is full of clothes. Though it sometimes is quite unfriendly to look at an overflowing basket, she believes to only let the washing machine run when there's a full load to save on water.

These are some of the habits my family practice to water conservation, what about yours? (:
