Earth Day, is April 22, Stop, Look, and contemplate what you can do for the earth. Refect, gaze upon the earth and make thoughtful considerations, what you need to do to help the world.
This article is all about saving water, recycling water, and water pollution and take a look at the end of this post about the unmentionable World of Human Wastes and Why It Matters.
Overpopulation in cities has choked and polluted the rivers. ... discharge of untreated industrial
Earth day in New Zealand
Earth day 22 April, I took a drive around, just to see what I could see, that maybe I can help make the world a better place and less pollution for future generations.
I did come across someone picking up rubbish from the roadside. (Nice)!
But I found something which was not nice.
The above photo is some of what I saw, I was not happy.
This waste, of dumped farm maze, with a river not far away.
Coming across this on my travels on Earth day on the outskirts of a town, was not what I like to see.
You can see the liquid seeping out at the bottom of the stacks of maze waste, which has cow manure in it from a farmers feeding pad for dairy cows.
There were many starlings feeding off of the seeds, still in the waste.
I do not enjoy adding this for the world to see, but this is what I am promoting in this article, water pollution, and so close to home.
I am pleased to say that some months later, I took another drive past it and it has all been sorted out, hope it stays that way.
But I will leave this photo here to remind us, this sort of thing is not except-able.
Earth and saving water
What can you do to help it to be a cleaner greener world for future generations?
Water saving is the key to being green.
Know green, go green.
On earth we waste so much water.
Be water wise.
What is Reclaimed Water?
Reclaimed water or recycled water, is former wastewater (sewage) that is treated to remove solids and impurities, and used unsustainable landscaping irrigation to recharge groundwater aquifers to meet commercial and industrial water needs.
Help the Environment by Recycling water
Recycled water is good for:
Toilet flushing, watering gardens, lawns and parks.
Washing cars and windows.
There are lots of other uses also for recycled water.
Maybe you could let us know some of your ideas for recycled water in the Guest comment.
In the video below the owners, since installing a system to catch water they've collected about 3,000 to 4,000 gallons of water to re-use for their laundry and their toilets.
Thanks for reading.

The Big Necessity: The unmentionable world of human waste and why It matters
This is so true - bodily waste is something common to all and as natural as breathing, yet we prefer not to talk about it.
But the time has come we need to stop and think about it, human waste is a major public health threat: population growth is taxing even the most advanced sewage systems in the world.
Yes this subject remains unmentionable, where will our body wastes, be going in 50-100 years time?.
