“Water is a remarkable substance- central to life, it feeds our nations, drives our industry, washes away our troubles, quenches our thirst, and brings beauty and pleasure into our lives.” –Barbara Schreiner.
As of late, people are becoming a lot more environmentally conscious. Companies are becoming eco-friendly and a large percentage of the South African population is more aware of their actions and the potential reactions that might occur. However, water conservation has recently seemed to dim out of the spotlight. The importance of water conservation cannot be stressed enough.
Save our Water
Water is the fuel of life. Plants, animals and humans cannot function without it. Water conservation is highly underrated, and we all need to come together to take measures that conserve our water levels. There is no denying that, especially in South Africa, our water supply is stressed. With increasing populations and our water supply relying on rainfall 100%, we have to take action.
An innovative idea is rain harvesting. RotoTank™ supplies vertical tanks, which are perfect to use as rain water tanks. These are ideal for rural areas, allowing people to save water and have easy access after rainfall. Almost anyone could use rain water tanks for a range of purposes.
Here are a few examples of places that would definitely benefit from harvesting rain water.
- Nature conservations
- Rural housing
- Informal settlements
There is a certain notion of idealism with rain harvesting. Knowing that you are not only conserving water, but collecting from a natural resource, is rewarding.
Save, Save Save!
Remember to conserve your water usage around the home and office too. Here are a few tips to keep your water-conscious levels up and consumption down:
- Use rain tanks for watering your flowerbeds and garden
- Fill you toilet cistern with dye to check for leaks. This could save up to 3000litres of water
- For cleaning: sweep, don’t hose
- Wash cars on the lawn
- Turning off the shower whilst you wash your hair can save up to 550litres per month
- Have hand sanitiser in your office rather than soap
