Theme of the year : Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Resource of the month : WATER

Following are some of the suggestions which we all can practice and ask our children to do the same:

  • Wash your fruits and vegetables in a sink of water instead of running water from the tap.
  • Water your plants in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler to minimize evaporation.
  • When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash-water and the other with rinse-water.
  • Collect the water you use for rinsing fruits and vegetables, and then reuse it to water houseplants.
  • When you are washing your hands, don't let the water run while you lather.
  • When doing laundry, match the water level to the size of the load.
  • Teach your children to turn off faucets tightly after each use.
  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth and save 100 litres a month.
  • Washing dark clothes in cold water saves both on water and energy while it helps your clothes to keep their colours.
