Featured activity – Water: Audits and Pledges

This activity is one of our Dustbowl Activities, and is all about being aware of how much water we each use, and waste, every day.

wasted through tripping taps, overfilled kettles and other things. While it might seem like the UK gets a lot of rain, the truth is it’s not as simple as just collecting this water, and it takes a long time for underground water stores, called aquifers, to refill naturally.

This activity is all about looking at the amount of water you use, and what you can do to reduce this amount so if or when there are water shortages due to environmental change, we’ll be able to cope.
