8 Smart gadgets to help you reduce your water use

What better day than World Water Day to discuss our excessive (and unnecessary) use of water. Rather than turning the water off while you lather your hair in the shower (although that’s a great idea), you can also use technology to cut down on your usage.

  • How many people don’t have access to water? According to the UN, 2.1 billion people don’t have safe water at home while 4 billion people “experience severe water scarcity during at least one month of the year.”
  • How can I cut wasteful down water use at home? Turn off the faucet while you brush your teeth and while you lather your hands, turn off your shower while you wash your hair and body, and, if you’re up for it, let it mellow if it’s yellow.

Saving water isn’t just a fashionable choice in today’s society; reducing our water use will actually help our planet thrive. There are communities all over the world without access to drinkable water. It’s only when our own access is limited (insert Flint, MI) that we truly take notice.

But, it shouldn’t be this way. We should make a conscious effort to use less water. Along with the benefit to the planet, it’ll also help you cut down on your water bill. Check out these smart gadgets that will help you save water automatically.
