19. Don’t Waste Water
The water that you use in your home goes to sewage treatment, where pollutants are removed before flushing them out into the water bodies. Along with using harmful chemicals in and around the house, the problem also surfaces when you waste too much water. Studies suggest that when too much water is sent to the plants, the systems can get overwhelmed mainly because many of them are quite old.
This concept impacts the system’s performance, and pollutants get the chance to pass through and end up in streams, lakes, rivers, or oceans. So do your part and make sure you don’t waste water. Keep your shower shorter, don’t leave the sink running, and try to use limited water while washing your car or bike.
