Sustainable Living - Water

Water

A major factor of sustainable living involves that which no human can live without, water. Unsustainable water usage has far reaching implications for humankind. Currently, humans use one-fourth of the earth’s total water in natural circulation, and over half the accessible runoff. Additionally, population growth and water demand is ever increasing. Thus, it is necessary to use available water more efficiently. In sustainable living, one can use water more sustainably through a series of simple, everyday measures. These measures involve considering indoor home appliance efficiency, outdoor water use, and daily water use awareness.

Famous quotes containing the word water:

    By polluting clear water with slime you will never find good drinking water.
    Aeschylus (525–456 B.C.)

    Ice is an interesting subject for contemplation. They told me that they had some in the ice-houses at Fresh Pond five years old which was as good as ever. Why is it that a bucket of water soon becomes putrid, but frozen remains sweet forever? It is commonly said that this is the difference between the affections and the intellect.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A spring,
    A pool among the rock
    If there were the sound of water only
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
