NEVER WASTE A GOOD DROUGHT
Cape Town’s drought presents an incredible opportunity for South Africans to shift the way we understand and value water. Thanks to exceptional media coverage of this crisis, for the first time people from across the country are coming to terms with the possibility of Climate Change disrupting their water supply.
We are finally questioning whether it is a good idea to be completely dependent on a central system to provide our water, we are exploring how to harvest rainwater and reuse our greywater, we are wondering why we have used potable water for so long to flush our toilets and are investing in simple and cost effective solutions to conserve our most precious resource – water – all the while protecting our homes and businesses from running dry.
Through the water crisis Cape Town will soon become a leading water wise and resilient Global City, driven by knowledgeable and active water conscious citizens!
