How Much Water does California Have Left?
It's a well known fact that we are experiencing a drought in California. But it doesn't really seem to bother most people. Now that the Governor has signed to have us all reduce water consumption by 25%, we'll HAVE to make changes to our lifestyle.
One thing I did this morning was buying this Faucet Aerator for all my sinks. $0.01/piece + Shipping. Too inexpensive to not do it. .
Then I read this awesome article about our water consumption and how we can all help cut it down.
80% of all California water gets used for agriculture. Ok, we have to eat, I understand. BUT - we can choose to eat things that take less water to raise/grow. Quit eating red meat (not good for you anyway) and nuts.
I was so surprised when I saw the statistics. This read is worth the time:
If we don't start saving, we might have to move somehwhere else very soon... (don't forget to list your home with me ;-) )
