Water conservation is a good way of life and it does not require a major change in lifestyle. Mostly, it's a matter of using common sense. Fresh clean drinking water is yours to use when needed but remember that it is a valuable resource that should not be wasted. A little effort will make a big difference. Every drop counts!
