Fiona Rossiter, an Orange City Councillor is a mother of six children aged from eight months to eighteen years. Fiona and her husband Paul have devised a number of simple but effective ways to save on water usage, and therefore costs, at their home. They discovered an old well on their property and are now hoping to strengthen it so it too can be used as a water supply.
"I say to my children water is like liquid money: if you don’t preserve it, it's literally down the drain."
These are the things our family does to save water:
I say to my children water is like liquid money: if you don't preserve it, it's literally down the drain.
We were thinking about conserving water before 'user pays' came in because we’re real 'greens'. For us it's all about the children’s future and not using all the money you earn on paying bills.
