So it's a more than a little concerning when all the talk has been this week that Wellington has less than 3 weeks of water left and that the entire North Island has now been declared a drought zone.
This has been the most AMAZING summer ever, but it has come at quite a price.
I'm very aware that we can all play our part in not making this crisis worse than it already is. So here's how we are doing our bit to help:
- Only washing up any dishes when we absolutely need to
- Going with the 'if it's yellow, let it mellow...if it's brown, flush it down' philosophy
- Taking a bucket into the shower to catch run-off water to water the garden with (there's now a complete outdoor water ban)
- Turning the shower off whilst shampooing, conditioning and washing bodies in the shower
- No baths at all, short showers only
- Only running the dishwasher when it's chocka-block full
- No running the tap when brushing teeth
Are you being careful with water where you are? It sure becomes such a precious commodity when you know it's in short supply!
