Water Conservation Tips from Mr. Elias Grade 8 Class

  • Articles

Our Grade 8 coloured posters from Morden’s Water Conservation Colouring Book. Turns out we really like colouring. We also designed a few original posters. The activity led to some good conversations about saving water. Every drop counts!

Yard Water Conservation Tip from Dorothy

We conserved water by relying on our established trees and plants to survive on their own without any supplemental watering. Any flowers or fruit that were produced were counted as a bonus. This year we really appreciated our grape vines that produced enough for us, plus some to share.

Yard Conservation Tip from Amanda

Kids have been bathing in this little orange bucket (and loving it!). We let it fill while the older one showers then it is the perfect temp to bath the little. The grey water is then hauled outside for watering the garden, the bucket makes the hauling easier too 🙂

Home Water Conservation tip from Karen

Buckets!! We use them for collecting dishwashing water to flush our toilets. We have an additional bucket in our shower, to collect soapy water we might miss for cleaning floors, I just add a bit of vinegar. Humidifier water is great way to reuse for watering our veggies, we make sure our facets are closed and not leaking. Laundry gets done in big loads to avoid waste. Dishwasher only gets run when is completly full, but for the most part handwashing to converse water.

Yard Water Conservation Tip from Nyomi

We are working diligently to conserve water in numerous ways .. I’ve layered mulch in the flower beds to hold the moisture , collecting as much rain water as possible. We are also use the grey water from showering /dishes / bathroom sink water to water plants.

Home Water Conservation Tip from Dean

I removed the clear drain tubing from the central air conditioning unit attached to our furnace which was draining directly into the sewer from our home. I just lifted the clear air conditioner drain pipe out of the pipe draining into the sewer and placed it into a 5 gallon pail. In a matter of 24 hours we are collecting 5 gallons (+ or – a quart) of clear water for our outdoor plants. Such an effortless means of conserving valuable water during difficult times of water shortage.
