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 school 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.
