Hi there :) Yes, I do conserve water in my own way :) Each time I launder our clothes I use the Downy one wash fabric conditioner (which I think is only available in the Philippines) wherein you rinse your clothes just once and soak it in another pail of Downy fabric conditioner and water. Using this I can save about six pails of water each time I launder. And for the water left I usually use it to clean our garage or to rinse the doormats in our house. :) This is my way to contribute to the challenges of our environment nowadays because I'm deeply troubled about it.

Here it rarely rains so no need to precerve rain water but we o have a system where water is being stored to be used for washing cars, clothes,utensils, gardenning, bathing the dogs and cleaning the floor. We prefer to save the water to use it for all these instead of using the tap water for every little stuffs.

Hi there Sahil! Yes, I always do. I turn off the faucet everytime it is turned on unnecessarily.

hi sahil, everyone in our town has a rain water conserving plant in their home as the government said that it was compulsory to have one in each home.in our home too we have one and it saves rain water giving us more underground water.
