Last week we visited the Water Museum in our city, Palencia. The museum is by the Canal of Castile. The visit was very educative and interesting.

The last presentation gave us examples to demonstrate how much water we could waste if we don´t follow some simple instructions.

A WASHING MACHINE USES 80 LITERS OF WATER. SO BE SURE TO USE IT WITH A FULL LOAD

A TOILET CAN SPEND 9 LITERS OF WATER. INSTALLING A DUAL FLUSH WILL SAVE WATER

A SHOWER SPENDS 60 LITERS OF WATER. A BATH, 250 LITERS. WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

The presentations finished with this image. Remember, we are made of water. We need water. So don´t waste it.
