Conserve Water,

Preserve Life!
“THE WATER THAT WENT DOWN THE DRAIN”
Do we waste water? Do we think it’s
free?

How it gets to us, those efforts we


don’t see
In so many parts of the world you
know
There’s severe water shortage and
crops don’t grow
Their livestock dies too
and there’s famine around
While for you and I,
precious water doesn’t count
So let’s look at some things we can do
every day

With a little thought and


effort,
our in water, but only as much as we drin
Stop filling the glass up to almost the brim
If we can’t drink it all,
cover the glass with a lid

When we’re thirsty next


time,
hat way we won’t have to wash it each time

’s a good way of saving both water and tim


As for the water guests leave in the
glass
It can surely be used for our indoor
plants
When it comes to dishwashers and
washing machines
Let’s not turn them on for only a few things
et’s turn off the tap while we’re brushing our teet

or while scrubbing our feet


Or shampooing our hair
As for our
showers, when
we’re under that
spray

It’s not the place


to plan our life or
our day
While washing
our cars, let’s
not give them a
bath

Let’s try to
save water
when doing
this task
I could keep going
on,
there are so many
ways
If we think it’s
important,
so much water can
be saved

It’s really high time


that we lived our
lives
On a conscious
level, with our
conscience alive
For be sure of one
thing –
that someone,
somewhere
Needs that water
we waste,
while we don’t
care.
