Years before this, however, the world will be unable to meet the water demands of the existing population as our precious, finite lakes and rivers dry out or become contaminated. Every country is slowly waking up the reality of the situation and efforts have begun to combat the situation. As India barrels towards becoming the most populated country in the world where a majority of the public cannot access safe drinking water, the government is

This concept is ideal for countries that is able to produce enough of one product to have stocks left after their people consume the goods, but isn’t able to produce much of another product. Meat, tomatoes, wheat are a few examples. The most recent entry into the trading industry is water. And it’s aiming to repair a lot of the damage we’ve done over the decades. By 2050, the world’s water

[caption id="attachment_6586" align="aligncenter" width="3000"] Don't we want our planet to look like this in 2050?[/caption] This year’s World Water Day came with bleak news. The UN’s newest report shows a red flag for India. We’re looking at an extreme water crisis spread throughout the nation by 2050. Much of Central India is already struggling with the loss of 40% of surface water resources, thanks to contamination. Coupled with a rapidly expanding population and warming planet, the future shows an even chillier picture; where not only surface water, but most of our ground water reserves will be unfit for consumption as well. Thanks to unmonitored dumping of sewage

You might be conscious about how water wastage affects all of us, or worried about water scarcity that’s already hitting a considerable portion of the world. Or you might just not want to waste water. Whatever your reason, congrats on making the right choice! Here are (n) ways you can save water and make a difference. 1) Brush With The Tap Turned Off A number of us leave the water running when we brush our teeth. Closing that tap can help you save 6 litres of water everyday. That’s over 2000 litres a year! 2) Shower Savers Showers use 6 to 45 litres per minute. Reduce the length

Brushing. Pooping. Showering. Shaving. Pretty normal everyday activities isn’t it? What could possibly go wrong with them? Let me sketch out your morning routine. You wake up, enter your bathroom, turn on the faucet, wash your face, use the toilet, take a shower, have your coffee, do your morning activities and kick-start your day. Now let me paint you a slightly different picture. Your alarm goes off as usual. You have to get ready, make breakfast, get your kids dressed, drop them to school, reach office yourself, and move forward with your day, much like any other day. But as soon as you twirl

The problem with water scarcity is that, it does not hit you as long as there is running water in front of you. When we say “water scarcity”, odds are that you are probably thinking of a desert or a drought struck village but the truth is that water scarcity is most prevalent in urban areas and is more common than one might think. With a growing population and dwindling resources, the problem is much bigger than we believe it to be. Contrary to popular beliefs or what the seemingly never ending supply of water at your house might suggest, water resources

There are more than 326 million trillion gallons of water on Earth. Out of this, only 1% is consumable and 2% is locked up in ice caps and glaciers. Currently, there are about 9.17 billion people on earth wanting their share of the 1%. However, population is not the biggest trigger of the water crisis the world faces today. It is reckless overuse. Water, being key to life and central to societal development, continues to grow in demand by the hour. As temperatures also rise due to climate change, utilization of water has doubled. The heat forces us to take 2 showers

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]How you can minimise water usage and bring down your soaring bills Come summer and many apartment complexes in several cities may run out of water.

Another year draws to a close. A year that began full of promise, as it does every year. A year that has brought a series of highs and lows. If water and the lack of it were the talking points in the beginning of the year, too much water and the resultant flooding in Chennai, while droughts ravaged Uttarakhand is how we are closing down this year. As if we needed more proof that water is the central need of every life! Here’s a list of just some of the interesting articles published this year on water conservation. Here’s looking forward to a better

Our VenAqua blog is a fledgling. It came into existence just a few months back, out of a need to tell and share water stories, about conservation, sustainability and so on as it was related to our product, the VenAqua water meter. Our product is there to help you show you how much water you consume and thereby, help you save it. And so, it made sense to talk about water. Quite a bit. Let’s see what all we spoke about this year, shall we? The first ever post written on the blog is about saving Perumbakkam Lake in Chennai. This was a crowd-funding event
