If everyone turns off tap while brushing

  1. Mar 17, 2012 #1
    Hi Experts

    I heard an advertisement that encourages people to save water.

    It says that there are many people in countries without good water to drink.

    But if say UK people turns the tap off while brushing, this only saves UK water.
    How can this help poor countries ?

    It doesn't. Water conservation is a local issue, not a global one.

    If you're based in the UK it's likely because South East England and East Anglia are in a drought at the moment and have already been given hose-pipe bans.
