“It’s no secret that the survival of our planet is intrinsically linked to the health of our ecosystems. However in recent years, our natural world has faced challenges of epic proportions including the adverse effects brought on by climate change, and we’re seeing our ecosystems and natural resources suffering as a result.

“We can sometimes feel powerless in this struggle, but World Environment Day serves as a timely reminder of just how impactful we can be when we come together to make a difference. Imagine the possibilities, if we each committed to making just a few simple changes in our everyday lives.

“Water plays perhaps one of the most integral and multifaceted roles in sustaining every aspect of our ecosystems, environment and our very existence. One of the key steps we as individuals, and as businesses can each take to help protect our precious ecosystems is to be more conscious in our consumption of water.

“At Sensus, a Xylem brand, we place water at the heart of everything we do, and we are committed to supporting our partners, and the communities we serve, in safeguarding this precious resource too.

Smart water technologies, for example, are at the forefront of this approach. They can accurately and efficiently manage, treat and distribute water to minimize losses and in turn create a domino effect that benefits the entire ecosystem.

“But it’s not just businesses that can make a difference. Here are four simple but highly impactful switches you can make in your everyday life to play your part in helping to reduce unnecessary water going down the drain:

  1. Turn the tap off in between rinsing when brushing your teeth and you could save up to 200 gallons of water per month;
  2. Switch the tap off off during those 20 seconds when you’re scrubbing your hands with soap to help save up to 6 gallons per day;
  3. Lather up your hair with shampoo with the tap off and you could save up to 150 gallons of water in a month;
  4. Wash your vegetables and dishes in a sink of water instead of under a running faucet to massively reduce water wastage.”
