Conservation - Reducing Water Usage

Pages

Sustainable living and making apartment complexes environmentally friendly - these were the themes of a recent workshop organized by Apartment Adda and The Alternative in Bangalore.

Oasis Breeze and Mana Sarovar Apartments are two apartment complexes like any other in Bangalore. They have a huge water problem. Residents use water without realising how much they are wasting and depend on water tankers without realising how much they are using. To monitor better usage, individual water meters were set up in each household of the apartments. Regular follow-ups and interaction with the residents using charts and graphs for props have showed that they have become more mindful of their water usage.

Urban policies seem to favour the wealthy; they don't bear the brunt of urbanization as much as the poor.

Environmentalist Robert Swan, the first person to walk the North and South Pole, was in Delhi last year. He launched phase IV of Project Search, which aimed to promote environmental awareness and sustainable lifestyles among students. Swan noted that not many Delhiites scored high on topics of environmental awareness.  He thought that to make Delhiites take to the environment in a big way, one had to make caring for it very upmarket. He said, “They will step out of their huge cars and donate to save tigers, animals, etc., because that sounds uber-sophisticated” (1).
