We can’t say enough with regard to the crisis and politics of water in our cities and our country. But the fact is that we’re not doing enough (or anything at all!) to prepare for the dry spell we’re soon going to have to live with. With the disputes over water from Cauvery to the Indus river, we need some crazy ways to make water last through the dry summer.

Your city needs YOU to become a WATER WARRIOR (of taps, not guns!) with a clear mission brief to save every drop from going to waste.

How can you save every drop?

Follow our Facebook updates and Twitter feed for all the edutaining information on water shortage in infographics and videos, water conserving and recycling practices and stories by people in their homes, cool tools to measure water usage and ways to get involved in communities to save every drop in the society and save every lake in the city.

3. Ask your friends and family to like, share, retweet and favourite your pictures or tweets so that your water saving practice is no longer the best kept secret! We’ll count each ‘like, share, retweet and favourite’ as one vote of pledge towards conserving water and your chances of winning one notch higher.
