Simple Ways We Can All Help Save Our Water Resources

April 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 202

What would you say if someone were to ask you to predict the fate of our world should all of our water resources dry up? At this point, there's no way to produce synthetic water, so if all the world's water dried up, there would be no way to sustain any type of life. Water is a critical component for any living thing. As humans we consider ourselves the superior species, but without water we'd be no better off than the lowliest of creatures. Therefore, we all need to work at preserving the fresh water that we have by preventing all manner of pollution from contaminating it.

Our dwindling fresh water resources need to be a priority concern for every country in the world. Everyone needs to work together if this problem isn't going to reach disaster status for our children and grandchildren. Pollution can't completely be eradicated, but with everyone doing their part, it can be cut down dramatically. Most of the safeguards are no more than common sense, but we need to think carefully about what we're doing so that we aren't causing more pollution.

So what can you do personally which can contribute to the clean-up project? Some ways that you can get involved include:

1. Let your government know how you feel. Write to your congresspeople. Tell them your concerns about the environment and water in particular, and request that they tighten laws governing it. Then follow the laws to the letter.

2. Dispose of household cleaning products appropriately. Don't just throw bottles of leftover cleaners, polishes, and the like in the trash. Instead, make sure to place them in a safe bag and send them to a recycling center.

3. Biodegradable materials, such as disposable diapers and tampons, need to be put into the garbage can once they've been used. Too many people just toss items such as these into the toilet or other places where they can end up being washed into a river or lake.

4. When shopping for lawn and garden fertilizers, look for organic brands. That way, when it rains, the excess materials that you've used can wash harmlessly away and won't contaminate our water resources.

5. Dispose of oils properly. No matter whether it's used cooking oil or motor oil, flushing these products into our water system creates problems down the line. Instead, make sure they are placed in a sturdy container before being sent to the landfill, or give them to an oil recycling center where they can be reprocessed into usable products.

We all need to do our part, because no one person can take care of the problem alone. Simple lifestyle changes, such as those outlined above, can really make a difference when everyone practices them.
