Water, the very elixir of life, is being lost on our earth. Though three-fourth of the earth is water, the usable part of this indispensable resource is becoming scarce. The causes of this situation are many, including the industrial, domestic and agricultural overuse of water. Moreover, wastage of water, pollution of water bodies, contamination of groundwater and the ever increasing demand of water add to the water woes across the globe. This has resulted in severe impact on all the living and non living components on earth. The reducing forest cover, altered rainfall patterns, soil erosion, drying of river beds and disturbance in all natural cycles are some of such effects.
To combat the situation, everyone has a role to play. Just the way every drop counts, every small effort made in the direction of water conservation is of substantial worth. Thus, it is a global responsibility of every human being in the world to contribute towards this cause. Even changes in simple habits and lifestyle will definitely make a radical change in this scenario.
The CDLS 2018 at Modern School invites you to put forward your suggestions about lifestyle changes that can help to conserve water on mother earth.
