Festive fixes to wise water use
Festive indulgence can give rise to more water waste than ever, says the Consumer Council for Water, and points the way to water savings with its "five fast fixes."
Faced with sinks overflowing with dirty dishes, floods of guests requiring cups of tea and the temptation of long soaks in a hot bath to fend off the cold outside, many a water-efficient consumer could be lured away from their good habits.
To help householders stay water-conscious, the Consumer Council for Water offers its “five fast fixes” to help cut water consumption in key areas – to be observed “more than ever” over the festive season.
Dame Yve Buckland, chair of CCWater, called on customers to think beyond their Christmas comforts: “Water is a precious resource which we all need to value. Taking steps to conserve your consumption not only helps the environment but will also help those with water meters cut their bills – which is something that would be very welcome post Christmas!”
