This water shortage 2

Evening folks, I very rarely watch the news anymore because of having internet. Anyways, tonight I watched the news and they were banging on about water shortages. It’s an important issue, but they tend to just try to get the phrase “hosepipe ban” on air as often as then can. This doesn’t help! Simple things we can all do:Don’t overfill the bath.Have showers if possible.Turn tap off when brushing teeth.Use the half flush button on your loo.Fit a Hippo flush or similar.Water garden using rainwater butts.Plant bulbs not seeds (they seem to handle drought better).Water from boiled veg is good plant food.Use Eco programs on washing machines. Add your own tips as comments if you wish…. 🙂
