National Water Week
Posted October 13, 2011, by Louisa Veidelis
This week is the perfect time to become water wise, as Australia's most precious resource continues to battle drought, population growth and climate change.
'Every Bucket Counts' is the theme for National Water Week, organised by the Australian Water Association and sponsored by Sydney Water and Smart Approved WaterMark. The campaign aims to save at least one million buckets of water nationally.
'On average, every Australian uses around 23 buckets of drinking quality water each per day, but our drinking water is too precious to waste,' says Julian Gray, CEO of Smart Approved WaterMark. The organisation has launched three online water-saving calculators to help Aussie households save water by changing their lifestyles.
