It is easy for us to be worried about this problem. Of course, we hope that farmers will find a way to obtain enough water for their plants and animals, but have you ever asked yourself what you could do to help conserve water that could be used for food production?

You can also turn off the water as you brush your teeth. Running the water for a minute or two while you brush wastes a lot of good water. And, how about the length of your showers? Many people take 15-minute showers.

If you cut the length of your shower to, say, 10 minutes, you can make a considerable difference on the amount of water consumed right in your own home. There are many things that we can do to conserve water right at home.

You can fix a leaky faucet, you can turn off the water while you brush your teeth, and you can take shorter showers. If we are careful not to waste water on things we do each day, our society will have extra water for more paramount uses, like meat and dairy production.
