There are two ways you can contribute to this cause: 1.) Conserve Water and 2.) Greywater Harvesting. Most homes nowadays have a dish washer and/or washing machine. Did you know that by waiting until your dishwasher is full to run the load can cut a household's water consumption by about 1,000 gallons per month? How about cutting down your shower time? We all love to sing in the shower, but perhaps being a little more efficient could go a long way. Imagine the difference we could make if we ALL started to do that. Along with conserving water usage, comes recycling your grey water.
Benefits of Greywater Harvesting
· Lower fresh water use; reduce personal water bills
· Create a sustainable landscape
· Conserve water & energy
· Convert potential pollutants into nutrients
· Reduce strain on treatment or septic systems
· Better treatment (topsoil is much more effective than subsoil or treatment plant)
· Enhance water quality and recharge groundwater
It can easily be treated and recycled in your home to be reused. Unless we all contribute to conserving and recycling greywater, the problem will only get worse. In the U.S. the national population increased 52% from 1960-1990 thus increasing water consumption by 300%.
