‘A drop of water is worth more than a sack of gold to a thirsty man’. This quote truly defines the importance of water conservation in today’s world. 

Considering the current circumstances of water shortage, if we hope to thrive as a civilization, with unified efforts it is better we all start adopting and implementing water conservation methods along with their solutions. With the recent study revealing that there is practically non existence of fresh water supply, soon the living souls will suffer from the lack of a vital resource. Even after ample of CSR activities, celebrities voicing out the concerns and awareness, water conservation is yet to receive the attention it deserves. Did you know approximately 10 gallons per day of your water is lost to leaks? If you use a low-flow showerhead, you can save 15 gallons of water during a 10-minute shower.

As far as Mumbai is concerned, in 2012 there came out the news that the BMC is in the process of mapping out the entire water supply system in the city and identifying faulty lines. Unfortunately the entire process was scheduled to consume at least three-four years. Counting for more than a decade, the BMC has failed miserably to provide a basic constituent of urban life, adequate, clean drinking water. Adding to the worse scenario, sometime back a local newspaper reported approximately 3900 drought hit villages in Maharashtra. Out of all the trouble, till today the focus stays on farmers and the highest level of affliction they had to go thought because of less rainfall or poor water conservation system, etc. For people to not to run helter shelter today and in the future , mentioned below are few water conservation techniques one can implement for better living and society.

Rainwater Harvesting: - There is one cost effective way to conserve water, which most of the new constructions of buildings in the metro cities are considering and gradually implementing, i.e. Rainwater harvesting. It is the simple collection or storing of water through scientific techniques from the areas where the rain falls. Then the stored rain water can be best utilized for the domestic or the agricultural purpose. It is as far the best possible way to conserve water and awaken the society towards the importance of water. It is especially beneficial in the areas, which faces the scarcity of water.

Meter/Measure/Manage: -The process of metering, measuring, and managing laboratory facilities is essential for effective water management. It helps in analyzing a facility's water usage and proper management of mechanical equipment resulting to effective water efficiency. Making sure that the equipment is run correctly and maintained properly is the key to preventing excess water usage through leaks.

Roof water harvesting: - During monsoon when it rains or pour heavily the same water can be conserved and used for ground water recharge. It can be done by connecting the outlet/drop pipe from roof of the building to accumulate the rainwater to either existing wells/tube wells/bore well or specially designed structure.

Eliminate Single-Pass Cooling: - Single-pass cooling uses a continuous flow of water that is circulated once through the system for cooling purposes and is then disposed of down the drain.

 

With a burning desire to give a boost to the noble cause of water conservation, Hindustan Unilever Limited seems to have hold of just the right string with their unique project called, ‘Project Sunlight.' Stand head high with the Unilever Foundation holds the following objectives:

·         Not to let any child go to bed hungry

·         All households have enough water to drink, clean and live

·         Sustainable water conservation solutions for households

·         To improve the quality of life through the provision of hygiene, sanitation

·         Access to clean drinking water 

·         Basic nutrition by enhancing self-esteem

Not only are they aiming and serving the above mentioned purposes but also helping over 2 million children to live life respectfully and are providing a vehicle to travel towards their bright future. Unilever has an ongoing partnership with Save the Children, UNICEF and World Food Programme.

UNICEF - This funding is giving over 500,000 children across 3,500 schools in India a healthier start in life by providing hand washing facilities and promoting group hand washing programmes.

World Food Programme - This funding is providing school meals to 1 million children. Poor households must often choose between sending their children to school or to work the fields. A daily school meal provides a strong incentive to send children to school and keep them there.

Save the Children - This funding helps save the children by providing clean and safe drinking water for up to 500,000 children in emergency response programmes.

It is a strong movement that has reached the marks of over 100 million across the world. Each one associated with this movement shares a story as to how they are contributing to the society with their unique approach. Stories are contributed by people coming from all walks of life across the globe. As surprising as 7 years old to a housewife to a working woman to a man... everyone has shared their own anecdote and influenced thousands to join the movement. 

 

So you can visualise how one contribution towards water conservation can impact many others positively and help millions of people live a better life. It is not too late for you yet.  Do your bit to save water, save life, and make the world a better place to live in.
