What are some effective ways to reduce water consumption? In this article, we look at 5 simple ways to do just that.
We are living in the middle of a water crisis. Many people around the world do not have access to clean water, and the UN has decided to insert clean water access in the SDGs.
It is the SDG Number 6, the one about clean water, but given the current situation without a global effort, this might not happen by 2030. So let’s all take action!
This article written by Impakter’s Tech Editor Alessandro du Bessé with Erlijn van Genuchten, Ph.D. is the fifth article part of a series. Erlijn is running a challenge to find every day for a year, simple sustainable solutions.

1 — Prefer — Short — Showers Instead of Taking Baths
It takes a lot of warm water to fill up a tub, and then it might become cold again and need to be refilled. Taking a shower is a better option, but be careful not to spend too much time in there, otherwise, you might consume the same amount of water or even more than a bath.
Some showerheads contain new technologies that are far more efficient by significantly reducing the amount of water that comes out of it. You can have a look at Nebia, for example. These will surely reduce your water consumption!
