How to Save water

Water are becoming valuable everyday especially if we know that only 3% to 4% of the water available on earth is drinkable. In Jordan the water in more more important than other countries because it is considered on the top ten countries on the world with poor water resources. I have few suggestions and practice you may think it is simple but it have great results on the long run.

  1. Close the water tape while brushing your teeth or shaving your face
  2. Put a bottle of water in the toilet, so you can reduce the water on each flush
  3. Collect the water from cleaning vegetables and fruit and reuse them in water your garden (if you have)
  4. In Winter, collect the water that comes from shower or tapes while waiting the hot water to go down
  5. 5 minutes quick shower will reduce the waste water
  6. Collect the water that comes from your washing Machine (Last Cycle) and use them to mop your floor or your Bathroom
  7. Don’t user water hose to clean your car, use a bucket instead.
  8. Use Liquid soap instead of Solid one, the liquid one will bring foam faster than solid one espacially that our water are little salty

How much pressure in the car tire you should have

Maintaining the optimum value of the air pressure in your tire will help you to save fuel consumptions from to 10% to 15%. Each car manufacturer recommend the amount of air pressure you should have in your tires, to find these values; open the car door (next to steering) and look for any labels on the edge of the car and read the values. You will have two values, one if the load is light and the other if the car is fully loaded. Check your air pressure on the tires every 3 weeks to one months so you can minimize the fuel consumptions.
