Why do we want to conserve water?.
What if suddenly one day you wake up and find out that you are surrounded by desert, or if you find yourself in a house but with no running water? That is what it is like in some countries right now, because it didn't have enough fresh water lake to help its citizens. One has to walk for miles on the burning hot ground to carry one or two buckets of water for his or her home. Although about two-thirds of the world is covered with salt water, but we are still lacking fresh drinking water, because many fresh water rivers or streams are being polluted by waste water from factories, gas from cars, even plastic bags that people throw into streams. It can be very hazardous to human. .
Would you like to live in a place like that? I'm pretty sure that most of you won't, that's why we need to conserve water. Even if it's just a few gallons per week, it could save a lot of lives. Plus, conserving is not just for others; it's for yourself, too. Your water bill will be going down like a water slide, and perhaps you might end up as a model in your town or city for water conserving.
