Reducing water consumption is not a very easy job for me, because I am very struggle with how to reducing water in my daily life. I like drinking water, but I cannot reduce water through drinking, because water is indispensable in our lives. Therefore, I hope I can save shower time, and keep water recycle, as well as reduce time of the faucet on to reduce water consumption in the next week.
Firstly, I plan to reduce the shower time. I thought it probably is the easiest one, but I was wrong. I take shower every day, and I will take shower twice a day after running. I probably spend 30 minutes to take shower every time. Although I reduce time yesterday, it was not very successful. I only spent 18 minutes to finish it, but I thought my hair is not very clean, and I did not use the hair conditioner. But I think I do better in the next time, and I plan only take shower once a day.
Secondly, I think I can recycle water in my daily life. For example, in my family, my mom probably will recycle water which washes vegetables or fruits, and then use it to water the plants or mop. I think I can recycle water to wash my bowls or plates.
Furthermore, reducing time is the facet on is also very important and useful. I think I can reduce water when I wash hand. I find many people do not close water faucet when they get the liquid soap, which will waste lots of water. I will correct this problem at first. Then I will fasten the facet after using it. According to calculation, if people do not fasten the facet, 4 liters of water would be wasted every day.
In the next week, I think the most challenge for me is food, because I like eating. In China, I will eat 4 meals everyday—breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack in night. Actually I still don’t like the American food, so I eat many Chinese snacks every night. So how to reduce the snacks is the most challenge in the part of food.
