Hints and Tips for Sustainable Living

sustain globe

Sustainable Living is a way of life which looks to the wise and careful use of our resources in our day-to-day lives. The Conservancy will be developing this concept and ideas through a special project which is being prepared. Should you wish to become involved please click here and contact the Chairman.

While the project is getting going we will be posting news, ideas and suggestions regarding how we can make better use of what we have around us. This obviously has huge implications not only from an environmental point of view but also to assist in addressing some of the rising costs of living relating to water, electricity and waste.

Remember, one person's waste is another person's resource!

Ideas to Save Water

National Water Week 2010 : Together we can do more to save water

Water - a valuable resource

This is an annual national campaign, held this year from 15-21 March 2010, that mobilizes citizens to appreciate the value of water as a scarce natural resource and this year it focused on the important aspect of water conservation and demand management. Some of the activities that were suggested for people to get involved included:

  • To adopt and clean dirty rivers in our areas (This will be the focusof a schools project in the Conservancy)

  • Report leaking and burst pipes

  • Fix leaking taps in our yards and homes

  • Avoid watering our gardens with hosepipes for long periods and during the middle of the day

  • Use buckets to wash our cars instead of the hosepipes

  • Report any illegal abstraction of water from rivers and other water sources for commercial or domestic use

  • Report industries and individuals that dump their toxic waste in our rivers
