TIP OF THE WEEK - Conserving water

Published:Thursday | April 15, 2010 | 12:00 AM

We don't know when regular water supply will return so how about the following ways to save the little that is available?

1. Shower Parties

Go to friends and family members who have water on a weekend for a little shower party. Yes, take your soap, towels, etc. and take a bottle of your favourite drink and some snacks. After using the shower, volunteer to clean the bathroom then sit down to a meal and some catching up or bonding.

2. Cooking Pool

Get seven friends and family members together to split kitchen duties weekly. Just cook all the food in one home where water is available and all seven individuals partake of the meal, and then help to wash dishes etc. That way, you save time, energy, water and food.
