Take shorter showers

It’s always a good idea to save water but especially so when it can cause conflict for those who don’t have access to any. According to the Inter Press Service, drought has caused conflict in the Lake Chad Basin, which normally provides millions of people in four countries with water. Instability spread throughout Syria between 2006-2011 when an extreme drought caused 75 percent of farms to fail and 85 percent of livestock to die. 

Reduce your water consumption not only by taking shorter showers and turning the water off while you lather, but also be sure to cut down on how often you do laundry, only flush the toilet when necessary, and turn off the water when brushing your teeth!
