3 Ways You Can Help Keep Our Water Clean
You would never know, but many of our daily routines like using cleaning products and walking the dog may be contributing to the pollution in our waterways. Luckily there are a few very easy ways to help reduce our impact.
1. Your toilet is not a trash can
Never flush non-degradable products like baby wipes down the toilet. These kinds of products can cause a huge problem in the sewage treatment process, and can even end up littering beaches and water.
2. Your sink is not a trash can either
Don’t pour paint, used oil, chemical cleaners and other things of the sort down the drain. Many of these items contain toxic chemicals, we don’t want to end up in our water supply.
3. Pick up after your dog
Be a good neighbor and scoop up your pet waste. By doing this your keeping that bacteria from running into our storm drains and ending up in our water supply.
