Do you know how much water is wasted if you drink under a running tap?? Anywhere between 400ml - 1000ml (600ml on average). The Ekuphileni water explorers worked this out as they measured run off from their friends drinking under a running tap.
They then took the figures further and worked out that on average every learner will drink THREE times wasting a cummulative 1, 8 litres per learner.
With 840 learners at their school that is a whopping 1500 litres wasted every day!
In 1 week thats - 7560litres
In 1month thats - 15 120 litres = THREE 5000litre Jojo tanks wasted!!!
As a result the school has sourced twenty 20 litre buckets to put outside of each classroom to mitigate the wastage and as a result are saving 1500litres of water/day!
