The power of youth.
It’s never too early to begin talking about the importance of saving water. Colleges are the best places to involve students and create an environmental impact.

Here’s what your institution can do to help save the world’s most precious resource:


Calculate your water footprint: Our water footprint calculator can help you figure out how much water you consume, helping you reduce wastage!

Install water meters: quantify water use in your college as a first step towards preventing water crisis.

Install low flow water faucets: low flow faucets have a flow rate of 1.8 litres/ minute versus normal faucets which have a flow rate of 8 litres/ minute.

Install a dual toilet flush system: these toilets use 3 or 2 litres for a single flush and 9 or 4 litres for a longer flush. You can also opt for a waterless / eco-toilet.

Install a rainwater harvesting system: collect water on site for landscape irrigation while showing students practical ways of preventing water crisis.

Plug all leaks: put an end to water leakage from pipes.

Opt for water treatment, recycling and reuse.

Replace hose with a broom: use a broom to clean walkways, driveways, and entrances rather than hosing off these areas.

Do not wash paint brushes under a running tap: soak them in a container or a bucket to save water.

Bring refillable water bottles to school: at the end of the day, any leftover water can be poured into the garden.

Help save a wetland: Is a wetland near you threatened by illegal construction activities, used as a dump for untreated effluents/solid waste or endangered because of any other reason? Be a change maker - inform local authorities and help save a wetland!

Volunteer: pledge to take care of a wetland near you. Encourage students to volunteer and organize cleanliness drives. Click here to find more about volunteering opportunities near you.
