It is very important to conserve water as much as possible. This is especially true of South Africa right now. There are many ways to do this. When washing dishes, do we just endlessly run water for when we want to wash a few pots.
One useful way that I found, is to use some kettle water in one of the pots with the right amount of dish washing liquid. Then you can use the same water for every other pot that you are going to wash. Another way when washing dishes is to only run enough water to wash your dishes and not to overfill your sink.
When you bath or shower, you can also take care not to run too much water. You can even make arrangements to bath in the same water. My wife and I as well as our daughter bath in the same water. Maybe this can be done by you as well. Please take the necessary care to conserve water whenever the opportunity arise to do so.
There are even special toilet kits designed to be environmentally friendly and that uses 50% less water. For more information GO HERE
