Little scary truths about water and how we waste it!

littlescarytruths

Did you know: if you leave a sprinkler on for an hour, it can use the same amount of water that a family of four normally uses in two days!

And in India such a family in poor localities (mostly the mother and sisters of the family) would be waiting near the single tap used by 100’s of people, for endless hours, just to get a few buckets for daily needs!

Also watering during the hottest part of the day can mean that 90 per cent of the water evaporates and leaves your plant still thirsty. So water during the early morning or after the sun has gone down.
