A water limiter it limits your family to use less then 2 gallons of water in the entire house. The amount of gallons of water varies on the amount of people in the home. 🙂
Not only, is this a problem but the journey to get the dirty water is dangerous, tiring and long.
Coming home with the little water they’ve collected and knowing that the dirty water can cause diarrhea, dehydration and the worst of all death. Drinking dirty water affects babies the most with their weak immune system, dirty water affects not only the family but the whole community.
Solutions that we can use to help this critical situation is to build more wells and hand out water filters -such as the Hydraid filter which would provide clean water up to a year- to people in villages that are in desperate need of clean water. Both these solutions are in action to this very day. But another thing we can to do save water and the environment are to, take shorter showers-no need to take a shower for an hour!-, not to leave the tap running-this just is a waste of water!-, using cold water to wash your clothes, going to public car washes -because they use less water- and to wash the dishes manually than using the dishwasher-it saves A LOT of water-. If you think you can’t commit to these tasks, try doing a task once a month, or donate to a water project. As we help little by little it’ll not only help people around the world but also the world itself.
With a few small changes in your energy use at home, you can save money.
This picture depicts a handle of really helpful tips on how to conserve energy in our homes. I can say myself that I also try to conserve energy but sometimes I forget. For example the point that I like about housing is that we should keep our door and windows closed when turning on the AC and packing our lunch instead of buying it since it takes a lot of energy and water to make the small amount of food. Also making sure we are disposing of our waste properly.
In The USA, the population uses 151 gallons per day, while In Africa they merely use 5 gallons per day. There are so many ways that you can save water. One way you can water is by taking shorter showers like five minutes or less. Another way is that by turning off the water while soaping hands and brushing teeth. In addition, use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveways and walkways. Some other way is that water your yard and outdoor plants early or late in the day to reduce the evaporation. Donate to clean water charities, it can help to fight against the lack of clean water around the world. Your donation could help prevent disease like diarrhoea, dehydration and death from the dirty water.
Recycling is important. Recycling a can or anything is good for the environment and it saves a lot of natural resources. A can is made, sold and then someone drinks it. From here it can be recycled. When you recycle the can a truck takes it to a factory to be melted down and made in to something else. Recycling is important to our environment to provide a better future for us all.
YOU can make a difference. YOU can change the world. YOU have the power to conserve our home… or spoil it.
Plastic bags, while useful for carrying your groceries into the house, are killing many marine animals and are littering our Earth.
There are many ways to recycle and reuse plastic bags for our everyday needs, reducing our negative impact on the world.
One way, and perhaps the most creative way, to recycle your old plastic bags is to make yourself a brand new hand bag! You’d think that using bags to make a bag is silly, but these newly crafted items are much stronger and durable. Plus, you’ll be saving electricity as you spend your time cutting up plastic bags rather than watching television or surfing the internet!
Remember that the Earth is our planet; our children’s planet, and the planet of many generations to come. Every small action adds up and essentially will create a more sustainable home for everyone.
he Tesla Car is a very good invention. With this car the people could stop using fossil fuel. Even with fossil fuels it can coast a fortune but with Tesla they have these supercharging stations that are free to use. With these cars they won’t pollute anything making our world a better place. As well Tesla supercharging station are spread out over the US and a few in Canada and a lot more will be made. But with the new technology of the future these cars a extremely expensive they range to about $70,000 to $100,000. But Tesla are hoping to lower the price to $30,000 to $35,000. The car is 88% efficient compared to 16% for a conventional petrol driven car. Tesla cars and other electric cars are the new technology of the future. When we run out of fossil fuel electric cars with be our transportation. Overall Tesla has made amazing break though will technology and creativity on the supercharging stations and there cars.
We can make a difference!
Oil is going to run out in about 40 years. Oil companies are taking over the world because everyone is so dependant on oil with almost everything… the food we eat, the cars we drive, and the chairs we sit on. Global warming is getting worse and pollution is not getting any better. Maybe if we find a way to use electricity instead of oil, we could limit the fumes in the air, make a better place for you and your family to live in, for your grandchildren, too. There are already cars that run on electricity, so why can’t the factories? We could all help the environment, to help our future.
The water limiters limits the amount of water used in your home. You will have a monitor which shows you how much water you will be given for the day, the amount of water you used yesterday, 2 weeks ago, one month ago, 6 months ago and a year ago. So that you can calculate the amount of water your using in a long to short span of time.
??you should not eat more than you need to, dont buy a bunch of food that you arent going to eat or give. Try to eat healthy and a well balanced diet so you dont waste any food and start dumping it in the garbage! Always try to go on a vegetarian diet once a week, it helps the enviroment and yourself! for example, it takes 2,500 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef. Think of what you could do with 2,500 gallons of water. that water could go to people that are in need. In conclusion you should not waste or dump food that hasnt been eaten, you should give it to the needy or… DONT EVEN BUY THAT MUCH FOOD IF YOU KNOW YOUR NOT GOING TO EAT IT!!
– taking public transit, a bike, or an electric car as transportation
– factories restricting the amount of fossil fuels used in factories for mass production.We all know fossil fuel byproducts increase global warming. Then why do we continue to use it? If we used ‘renewable’ energy sources we would have clearer air, cleaner water, and a healthier population. If we did something as simple as instal solar panels in your house of drive an electric car we could drastically reduce pollution. Should we make a change for the better or continue to destroy our only home?
