A Water Theme for Summer and February
Getting to Know and Improve Water in our homes and churches
There is a link between water and carbon emissions. It is easy to overlook the energy used in treating and delivering water to our taps and fir heating water.
Energy is used to treat water and pipe it to our homes and churches. Energy is used to treat waste water and sewage. Saving water is better for our footprint on earth.
Inside: Fix leaks. Boil only as much water as you need (I used to fill the kettle!)
Toilets: Put a bottle in the cistern to reduce the amount of flush water
Outside: Collect rainwater for garden and church flowers - in a bucket – when raining, or install collection tanks.
Enjoy and give thanks for our water!
