Water is life.
Written: by Isira | Published: November 5, 2019
The level of complacency in big business and government around our water resources seems incomprehensible.
Here in Australia, we are in an extended severe drought. Entire towns have run out of water or are just about to, and yet as a nation we have not given this the attention it needs or deserves. This is not just ignorance, it is negligence.
The sad truth is - most of us know this but feel helpless. We just sit back watching the environmental disaster unfolding. We struggle to arrive at solutions because our political and societal views are so polarized and misinformed it is impossible to arrive at unified solutions for the long term good of communities and the environment.
So what can we do about this?
Be informed. And I don’t mean just the scraps fed to us by mainstream media - I mean - get out there, do the research, get to know your own environment, your own community, the connectivity between people, products and resources. Make informed decisions. Get your voice involved. And, assess your own actions.
There is so much more we can do to conserve water. Just because we can turn on a tap doesn’t mean we can afford to run buckets of water down our drains. And please don’t imagine that having a reasonable supply of water in your area means exemption from conscious consumption. We are all connected.
I’m really looking forward to sharing some of my own water saving methods with you soon.
In the meantime - let’s see if you read this post. Share your own water saving ideas and information about water resources in the comments below.
One Love, One Life.
