Saving Water in South Africa
Water leakages – how they affect us and what we can do about it. This is not only targeted at business, but at every person in South Africa.
According to World Wildlife Fund South Africa’s (WWF-SA) 2016 report titled Water: Facts and Futures… Rethinking South Africa’s Water Future, as much as “37% of water in our urban piped water systems leaks out or is used illegally”.
That’s more than a third of our country’s water, going down the drain – and I believe that this number is conservative.
With the water crisis in the Cape, looming water concerns across the world, and a growing population, this figure remains far too high. What effect does it have on us as individuals, communities, and businesses? What is being done? How can we make a difference?
