Water Saving Week 2021: how to save water at home

Now in its sixth year, Water Saving Week, hosted by Waterwise, a not-for-profit UK NGO focussed on reducing water consumption in the UK, considers the vital link between climate change and water efficiency.

The week-long campaign aims to spread awareness about the need to reduce water waste in terms of managing climate change, keeping our environment healthy, and helping local communities thrive.

What can you do to save water in your home?

The Covid-19 outbreak put increased pressure on water supplies. With more people staying at home combined with a surge in the number of ‘staycations’, the demand for water had been exceptionally high in 2020.

Moreover, 46% of households believe they only use 20 litres or less of water a day – the equivalent of taking a two-minute shower. However, this isn't the case. A family of four could use more than 500 litres each day (on average 142 litres per person).

Are you ready to take on a water saving challenge?

Take a look at the infographic below which illustrates where in the home you could be more water-conscious and in return, save both the planet and some money.
