Right now, somewhere in the world, a village or city is suffering from water shortage. If we conserve our water, it will make someone’s day better. There are two types of water we can save: personal and industrial water.

It is important to save water because without it, we wouldn’t be alive on this planet right now. Water is not unlimited. Therefore, we must find ways to save it. If we don’t save water, all living things on earth would die out sooner than we would think.

We can do this by shortening the duration of our shower times, keeping your sink off when not in use, and only using water when in need. As for industrial water, we can save it by making machines that reduce the amount of water used, recycling and reusing it, and reducing the flow of water.
