Being Water Wise

Yesterday Anne from Western Water came to visit the Grade 1’s. Anne came to teach us some facts about water. She also taught us lots of ways to save water at home.

Some of the water saving tips were:

* Use a cup when you are brushing your teeth instead of having the tap running

* Put a brick in the toilet cistern to save 3 litres of water

* Buy a washer for fifty cents to stop dripping taps

* Hang a bucket in the shower to use on gardens

* Use a water tank to store water

* Use a trigger nozzle on your hose

* Only half fill a bucket for washing the car and only wash lights, windows, numberplates and mirrors

* Use a liquid when washing clothes

* Roses and lavendar love soapy bathwater, but don’t tip soapy bathwater on vegetables, fruit trees or native plants

* Use a four minute timer in the shower

* Have a bath instead of a shower

By Grade 1B and 1C

    • Hi Patrick,
      Great idea! I bet you went home and told mummy and daddy this wonderful water saving tip! It only costs 20 cents and you can save water! I have got a bucket in my shower which I empty out and put onto our plants. How else does your family save water?
