FACTS- As humans we depend on water, and for most we don’t think about how much we use. For people in Cape Town (experiencing a seemingly endless drought) water is scarce. They only get 50 litres a day that’s barely enough to get you through the day.
- dishes and laundry, 18 litres a day.
- 90 second shower, 15 litres.
- 1 toilet flush, 9 litres.
- Washing your hands, 3 litres.
- Cooking, 2 litres.
- Drinking water, 2 litres.
- 1 dog bowl, 1 litre.
Thats 50 litres gone and if want to have everyday luxuries like a long shower or even going to the toilet more than once a day you’ll be in a predicament.
QUESTION-Who controls the water? Do certain people- like their Prime minister get more water?
UNDERSTANDINGS -I now understand that we shouldn’t take water for granted. And in some countries they barely have enough water to do what we consider day to day things.
