Drinking Our Rivers Dry?

As shown on “Drinking Our Rivers Dry?” (Panorama’s investigation into the water industry) the McRobie family reduced their water consumption by almost 50%, from 443 litres to 227 litres a day. What the programme didn’t show was how they did it… In fact, none of the talking heads on the programme actually mentioned the important role that behaviour change can have on reducing water stress in the UK and yet it is free, empowers the individual, and crucially reduces CO2 emissions produced when heating domestic water as most savings from behaviour change result in shorter showers or shallower baths. Go to www.ech2o.co.uk to see yearly water, CO2 and monetary savings, and an analysis of how their water consumption changed.
