The International Day of Water Loss aims to raise the awareness of the most precious resource of all of us which is absolutely essential for our survival, water.

Almost 1.8 billion people, a quarter of the world’s population, live in 17 countries facing an acute water shortage problem, that is expected to worsen in the near future.

But small changes in daily habits can make a significant contribution to water saving water, so:

  • Immediately repair any leaks that come to your attention in the home (flushing toilets, taps etc.).
  • Wash your car(s) at infrequent intervals, without a hose and using a bucket and sponge.
  • Water your balcony plants and flowers with a watering can, either in the early morning hours or after sunset.
  • Don’t turn on the sink and kitchen taps on all the way if you can be served with less water.
  • Use the washing machines and dishwashers only when full, adjusting them on the economy program and avoiding frequent use for a few clothing or dishes.
  • Don’t leave the taps on when brushing your teeth, shaving or soaping dishes.
  • Prefer to shower instead of filling your bathtub to wash your body.
  • Take care of your children and don’t let them waste water by playing with the taps on in your house.


With these small changes in your daily routine you will be able to save water providing you with a better future.
