Trish, This Means War
Ever wondered how much water is running loose when you open your tap? Well, let’s do this simple experiment. All you need is a friend, a stopwatch (almost every cellular phone nowadays has this application, right?), and an empty 1000 mL milk carton (e.g. HiLo Kacang Hijau). Got all that ready? Let’s get started!
1. Place the milk carton directly beneath tap mouth. Your buddy should be ready beside you with his stopwatch. The idea is to fill your milk carton with tap water while timing the process.
2. Open the tap fully—and start timing! Make sure that no water is spilled; we’re raising water-awareness here.
3. Stop timing when your milk carton is full. Again, make sure that no water is spilled.
4. Read the number in your stopwatch. That should be the time for your tap to release one liter of fresh water.
5. You can always use that water to water your plant (hope that makes sense) or any other thing, as long as your milk carton is clean. Be creative on how you spend your water!
In my case, my milk carton is full in twenty second. That means, every twenty second my tap is fully turned, a liter of fresh, clean water is poured. How much water is spilled in one minute? Thirty minutes? You can always multiply the time… and that’s a lot of water spilled, right? So, let’s be aware of our tap—and our water.

Siklus Sampah ITB, biarpun sampah tercampurnya banyak dan membuat sampah terbakarnya jadi banyak sehingga polusi udaranya juga banyak, ini adalah sistem yang paling bagus di Bandung.
Kalo masih belum ngerti bisa tanya-tanya ke U-green, atau kunjungi sendiri PPS Sabuga buat ngobrol-ngobrol sama bapak-bapak petugas disana.
