The Top 10 Water Conservation and Saving Tips

Water is Life: Consume Sparingly: It hits home really hard for some people when they realize that over a billion of their fellow humans on Earth (yes, ONE billion) have to suffer through extreme water droughts and the plain lack of access to freshwater for a variety of reasons. Many of them die each day; many more thousands are hospitalized because of water infected with pathogens and toxins. That said, take a look at the following helpful ideas.

How Do Poor, Rural Farmers Survive Water Droughts?

Water is the most abundant natural resource in the world, yet ironically, the usable fresh water supply constitutes only a meager 2-3% of it. The rest is either saltwater or freshwater that’s tied up in polar icecaps. The lion’s share of the freshwater people use comes from rivers, aquifers in the form of groundwater, water aqueducts, water basins and reservoirs, and various state and municipal water districts.

Intriguing Facts About The World’s Water Supply and Industry

Water is crucial to life; wait, back up: water IS life. Every organism on Earth is partially made up of it and every species has to continually have access to it. But since almost three-quarters of Earth is covered in non-consumable (for land-dwelling creatures at least) saltwater, how in the world do the trillions of humans, animals, and plants get the freshwater they need? After all, nearly 98% of the world’s water is unusable saltwater, and around 2% of the available freshwater is trapped in ice caps-leaving humans less than 1%.

California’s Water Supply: Top Fascinating Facts About California Water Consumption and Conversation

The Californian water supply system is one of the most unique water delivery systems in the world. Not only do individuals depend on freshwater daily-farms, industries, local governments, and other institutions must have ready-access to it too. Basic facts that you probably didn’t know about California’s water system includes: Water demand in California is highest during summer-when the air is hot and dry.

5 Easy Water Conservation Tips That Anyone Can Do

Water conservation isn’t always about spending money on low flow equipment and cutting back on how often you water your lawn. Sometimes all you need to do to conserve your water is make a few minor adjustments to everyday tasks. Here are five tips that will add up to many gallons of water without any extra work:

How to Achieve a Green Home

But just how can a home improvement project benefit the environment? There have really never been more options available to you if you want to go green and one of the best ways that you can reduce your carbon footprint is through building an ecological home.

What Are Solar Heat Panels?

Solar heat panels are created from pure silicon and the sunlight that is transformed into reusable energy hence giving them their ability to produce electricity. Solar panels are highly preferred by many households nowadays for they have come to realize the many benefits that this source of energy provides. These panels generate a kind of electricity that is clean and does not pollute the environment.

Make a Solar Panel at Home

This article explains provides information on making a solar panel at home. These days, creating your very own solar panels is not too difficult a task as long as you have access to some comprehensive instructions on the topic, the best and most convenient of which you can always find online.

Is Organic Good For You? An Economic Perspective

More Efficient Wind Turbine Plans – Novel Ideas and Blueprints

The unpredictability and the variability of wind speed and direction is one of the biggest challenges that scientists face in turbine construction. Turbines generally work best and produce maximum amounts of electrical energy in the presence of steady and strong wind flow. But they can be damaged easily with sudden wind bursts, wind shear and turbulent winds.
