Conserve water. Everyday actions can make a big difference.

Water is a looming global crisis. Across the world, 750 million people do not have access to clean and safe water to use for drinking, cooking, cleaning, or bathing. Being mindful of our daily water usage can have a powerful effect on the world’s water supply.
Here’s what you can do:
10

Traditional agricultural techniques often waste a huge amount of water, but what can you do? Look for food products that carry the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ green frog seal on crops such as tea, coffee, and bananas. Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms prioritize water conservation and the protection of local streams and waterways as part of their comprehensive environmental practices.

11

Buy a reusable water bottle and use tap or filtered water whenever possible. Check out these stats that explain the negative impacts of buying bottled water—such as the fact that it takes three times as much water to produce a bottle of water than to fill it! Foregoing bottled water is better for the environment—and your wallet, too.

12

Take shorter showers. We know it’s a challenge—even most devoted environmentalists love long, warm showers. But cutting down your daily shower by only two minutes can save 1,825 gallons of water each year (not to mention all that water-heating energy!).
