Water Saving Week 2016

Water Saving Week

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in Water Saving Week 2016!

For a look back at the outcomes and achievements of Water Saving Week 2016 please see the Summary of Outcomes Report here! 

21st- 25th March 2016

Waterwise are hosting Water Saving Week for the second year running. As before, there'll be an exciting range of activities to raise awareness about why we need to save water, including daily challenges, ideas and tips to help you do it.

 The UK has less available water per person than most other European countries. London is drier than Istanbul, and the South East of England has less water available per person than the Sudan and Syria. Surprised?

We’re delighted to partner up for this year’s campaign with WaterSafe – the water-sector backed online search facility where you can find trusted and qualified plumbers in your area. Plumbers approved through WaterSafe are trained to meet the strict regulations for installing pipes and fittings which supply drinking water, and can also help homes and businesses become more water efficient.

Why save water?

Increasingly erratic weather patterns, population increases and changes in lifestyle have led to increasing pressure being put on our water supplies. As a result, it is more important than ever that we take care with how we use water. Taking positive action now can help to ensure that there is enough water to go round, for us, for businesses and for the environment.
