Help Stop Wasting Fresh Water Before It Is Too Late!
Did you know that we have less than 1% of fresh water on Earth? Did you know that almost everyday, we waste tons of fresh water? Did you know that hand washing dishes can use up to 20 gallons of fresh water to wash dishes? Did you know that between 15 to 25 gallons of fresh water is used for the typical 5 minute shower? That is all wasting fresh water! We must stop now! I think that we should stop wasting fresh water now before it is too late.
In the first place, we are wasting fresh water when we brush our teeth! When we put the tooth brush in our mouth, we keep the water running and running. Why?! When you put the toothbrush in your mouth, turn of the water, and then, turn it on again when you are done! That is what I am doing and I think that you should do it to!
Secondly, we are wasting fresh water when we take a shower. As I said in the beginning, we waste 15 to 25 gallons of fresh water when we take a 5 minute shower. Imagine how many gallons of fresh water we waste when we are taking a 15 minute shower! This is also wasting fresh water. Try to keep you showers short.
Last but not least, rivers. Rivers that have fresh water flow in the ocean, and then we can not drink from it anymore! I think that engineers should build irrigation systems and water storage areas that won’t allow rivers that are coming from the mountains to flow into the oceans before we maximize our use from them. This is also causing loss of fresh water.
In my opinion, I think that we should stop wasting fresh water as soon as possible, because if we don’t, eventually, we will have to drink from the oceans, because there will be no fresh water! This is really affecting the world! Please stop wasting fresh water!
