Imagine that instead of eight glasses of water that you drink every day, you have to make do with just a quarter of a glass. Isn’t it too little to survive on in this sweltering summer? But this is exactly what people in Latur have to make do with. Water crisis has become the fact of life for people there.
Even heavy rains may not bring respite to drought-hit areas. One year of good monsoon won’t help the farmers repay the debt they have accumulated over the years. A worse drought than the one we are currently experiencing may loom in the future.
With the aim of providing relief to these drought-stricken regions, we have initiated this campaign. In addition to the donation that CACTUS will make as an organization, Cactizens will raise funds in teams for a greater impact. Cactizens have been divided into 6 teams with a group lead for each team to collect funds for this cause. Action Aid will be the beneficiary NGO for the total funds raised, which will be used for providing dry ration & water to families in Latur.
Let’s come together and make a difference, however little it may be because every rupee and every drop of water counts!
Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6 litres of water per minute
Repair dripping faucets by replacing washers. If your faucet is dripping at the rate of one drop per second, you can expect to waste 2,700 gallons per year which will add to the cost of water and sewer utilities, or strain your septic system.
Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
Shorten your shower by a minute or two and you’ll save up to 150 gallons per month.
Installing a water-saving flush where the amount of water released can be controlled, depending on whether urine or stool is to be flushed
The terrace of your house or building is a perfect place for collecting water. If you have a naturally sloping roof, you could simply allow the water to flow into a bucket. Create an artificial slope using sheets of plastic or metal to collect water to one point.
Car washing is one of the biggest water guzzlers. Reuse water as much as you can. For example, dirty water that was used to wash clothes or dishes can be used to wash your car. Avoid using a hose to wash your car. Instead, use a bucket of water and a cloth to clean your car.
