Water conservation refers to any activities that manage fresh water as a sustainable resource. Plants, animals and humans all need water to exist. However, only about 1% of the Earth’s water is fresh and usable. Given the ever-increasing demand for fresh water in private homes, commercial manufacturing, and agricultural irrigation, water conservation needs to be more than a popular cause of the “green” crowd. Reducing water consumption must become a major priority or our lovely blue planet will become a dead brown ball.
