Water is an essential element on EARTH. It sustains life on earth. Without water there will be no life. Our earth covers 71% of water where 96.5% is in ocean and only 2.5% is freshwater suitable for our daily consumption.

Presently due to increasing over consumption of freshwater all around the world, the water is depleting at an alarming rate. Recently, there are some countries and areas where the rivers has dried and water has completely vanished and people are left thirsty and the land is drought hit.

To save water all sorts of measures are being taken around the globe. But still general population is in no hurry to understand the serious future impact of this. They are recklessly wasting water under consumption because they are living in present and will not be there in future, so they are not worried. Those worried are the only ones who knows thier own children and coming generation will suffer if they don't take actions and measures right away.

When it comes to saving water, many of us have different views and methods to share which are majorly not practically possible by everyone. There have been various water saving techniques and solutions recommended which are far from being implemented before the WORLD finally runs out of fresh water. But there are still some ways which can be implemented without any extra efforts and is also very cost effective. This first step taken towards saving water can be started from our very own house i.e., a KITCHEN.

How can water be saved?

In the kitchen, the requirement of fresh water is necessary for cooking, drinking and even washing vegetables and fruits and washing utensils and dishes.

The first and best way to avoid water wastage can be done by using biodegradable and disposable leaf plates, mud cups, and plates & cutleries made of tree barks for eating and drinking purpose.

  • Using mud glass and clay cup for drinking purposes.

  • Using biodegradable disposable wooden cutleries.

  • Using leaf plates for serving and eating purposes.

Leaf plates can be made from palm, banana, sal or banyan leaves or anything which are larger in size and are suitable for hygienic eating and are easily biodegradable.

  • Using plates made from tree barks.

Wooden plates can be made from areca palm, or bamboo which are suitable for hygienic eating and are easily biodegradable.

Apart from these, there are utensils made of clay or mud which are suitable for cooking foods. These are very easily available with lesser costs and cooking food and dishes in it increases the nutritional values of food and enhances its taste. Washing these with only normal warm water either with baking soda or simply plain scrub will definitely reduce water usage and washing time.

Environment Impact :-

There will be a definite positive environment impact outcome by the above ways as follows:

  • Lesser water wastage.

  • Washing time will reduce.

  • Leaf and wooden plates & cutleries are biodegradable in nature, they will easily decompose and converted into organic compost.

  • These organic compost will increase fertility of farming land.

  • Use of leaf and wooden plates & cutleries will increase and encourage more tree plantations, thus encouraging more rainfall increasing fresh water underground.

  • More tree plantation will help improve and control global warming and climate changes.

  • Used clay pots can be reused as flower pot or plant pot or for seed germination in houses.
