The average person will need around 1.5 gallons of water to drink daily to survive in moderate climate with little activity. An average American uses 100-175 gallons of water per day. A 5 minute shower uses approximately 12.5 gallons. If we were able to conserve our use of water, it shows solidarity. Earth is 75% covered by water; 97.5% is saltwater. We have only 2.5% of freshwater
PRAY: Each day of this week, read this Bible verse as a family and add any special intentions.
“For the whole law is fulfilled in one statement, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” -Galatians 5:14
ACT: Limit your showers this week to 5 minutes. If you take baths, consider taken 1 fewer baths this week, or switching to a short shower. Turn off water when you brush teeth. Donate $.25 per bath & shower this week.
