According to experts, we're “at the tipping point of needing to take a more active role in reducing the amount of water we use”; otherwise we will ultimately suffer “scarcity of water and higher water bills.”
Water conservation means using our water wisely and caring for it properly. It is our responsibility to learn more about water conservation and how we can help keep our water pure and safe for generations to come. Let’s look at what creative ideas our children have for saving water and gas!
Water supply is finite so that we must learn to save water now for the future. The issue is certainly relevant to each individual citizen. Teachers, along with parents, should lead the efforts in addressing the problems to children.
Next to air, water is our most precious resource. If we save water now, we are helping to ensure a water supply adequate for future generations. Saving water saves money---this is what the art contest tells children.
