I installed a device to reduce the amount of water my toilet uses
A cut-volume device can save 45,000 litres of water per year - the same amount one person drinks in 25 years.Done
I turn off the tap when I'm brushing my teeth
Leaving the tap running wastes several litres of water per minute.Done
I use environmentally-friendly hygiene and cleaning products
We still do not know how tens of thousands of man-made chemicals affect our water supply and public health.Done
I preserve water in another way
There are so many ways to save water.Done
I wear my clothes more than once before I wash them
A washing machine can use more than 100 litres of water per load, including rinsing.Done
I use both sides of a sheet of paper
It takes 10 litres of water to make an A4 sheet of paper.Done
I take a shower instead of a bath
Taking a five minute shower uses about half as much water as the average bath.Done
I picked up 20 pieces of rubbish from my local beach
Plastic litter is thought to cause more deaths of marine animals than oil spills, heavy metals or other toxic materials.Done
I am involved in my community
Including yourself in community decisions about water advances the cause.Done
I found out what my local stream is and now help care for it
Clearing up rubbish and planting native plants can help reduce water pollution and erosion, transforming a dirty creek into a healthy stream againDone
I refill my water bottle instead of buying a new one
Every year around the world, about NZ $130 billion is spent on bottled water. Just a quarter of that amount would provide access to safe drinking water to the whole planet.Done
