Things you can do to save water:
Take a shorter shower. Every two minutes you save on your shower can conserve more than ten gallons of water.
Try to flush just one less time per day, and you’ll save about 4.5 gallons of water—as much water as the average person in Africa uses for a whole day of drinking, cooking, bathing, and cleaning.
Bring your own workout towel instead of using one that your gym provides. If just 1 percent of fitness club members in the United States were to start bringing their own workout towels, annually saving more than thirty-six million gallons of water.
The average bathtub faucet flows between three and five gallons of water per minute. Just on less gallon of water used per person in the United States per day can add up to more than one hundred billion gallons per year.

Yoga Energy Activism's SOLAR-AID Campaign
SolarAid is a leading international charity that provides access to clean, affordable solar lights.
One small light, one big idea
A solar lamp does more than shine a light. A solar lamp protects the environment and transforms lives.
598 million off-grid Africans have no access to electricity and many rely on toxic kerosene for lighting. These brutal lamps emit noxious black smoke and burn up to 20% of the household income - locking millions into poverty.
By contrast solar lights cost as little as $10, pay for themselves after 12 weeks and last for five years. Having free, clean light and not wasting money on kerosene transforms peoples’ chances in life.
We have taken on the challenge of getting these lights to the people that need them most and aim to get a clean light into every home in Africa by the end of the decade.
