Be Water Smart

To many, water seems to be plentiful and cheap. We turn on our fauets and leave the water running and running. But in reality, water is becoming limited.

Only 2.5 percent of the water on earth is considered fresh water. A small percent is available to us through lakes, rivers and streams. And, this unfornuately is in danger of drying up or becoming polluted.

If we become water smart and develop habits to save water, we can help this potential problem.

Tips to save water:

> Turn off water while brushing your teeth

> Buy a low flow toliet

> Take shorter showers, avoid taking baths

> Plant drought tolerant plants

> If you must water plants and your lawn, do so in the early morning and avoid misting sprinklers

> Use soaker hoses

> Sweep and don't hose down driveways, paths and patios.

> Refill reusable bottles with filtered water instead of buying bottled water

> Eat less meat. Did you know that to produce a quarter pound beef patty, it requires as much as 2,900 gallons of water according to Cornell University researchers.

Hey, this is Alex from Arizona. You know, last year I also had a website and I was also interested in getting sales and increasing my website revenue, this is kind of off the subject, but I just came across a company called Hot Search Marketing on a different blog: http://rateyourinternetmarketing.blogspot.com.

Have you heard about them? They're supposed to offer free seo and ppc management services and only charge for leads. I think this is awesome, and if it's true, I think you should check out their site at: http://www.hothelpsyousell.com.

Anyway, keep up the good writing and if you do try them out, shoot me an email or just write a post review about them.

I'll be coming back to your blog

Cheers!
