Back in the year 1994, individuals right around the world, due to the published studies of scientists, started saving water by implementing new and improved water saving systems. These included low flow showerheads, faucets and low water usage shower heads. While this seemed to be a great effort to save water back in the 90’s, it is one that could not possibly be left at that to conserve enough water to sustain the rest of the world for an eternity.

While implemented by most, individuals right across the globe still tend to waste large amounts of water and need to find common ground to save water even more.

  • Be sure to fix all leaks around your house, as it could be causing up to 10 gallons of lost water a day.
