Water Conservation

  Hurry!practice saving that water now.  This resources could vanish just like that if we don’t save water  immediately.
    Instead of having people going to the water fountain every kid can bring one water bottle everyday.  Don’t just use a few  dishes use a full load.  Every time you wash the dishes it takes about 50 gallons of water a day.  We can try to take shorter showers each day.  One time my friend was so thirsty he almost drank a whole gallon.  A whole sandwich could take up to 100 gallons of water!  You can wear the same clothes for 2 days.  Most americans use up to about 500 gallons a day.  Every time you flush a toilet it takes up to 10 gallons.                                                                                                                                       We can practice water conservation as soon possible.  Now get going and practice.
