Day Zero in the Western Cape has been a trending topic since it was announced last year. Capetonians face the probability of their taps running dry in April this year and the province has been scrambling to put measures in place before the deadline.

We’ve turned off sauna & steam facilities (using 650,000 litres less water per month), installed eco showers, harvested rainwater, trialling new systems & much more https://t.co/Xb8DdrbH7T @virginactiveSA #everydropcounts pic.twitter.com/fLOg6QQQra

Residents of these drought-stricken areas now make do with water rationing with specific litres placed on the amount of water an individual can use. Do your part to #SaveWater by checking out these 5 water saving tech products because #EveryDropCounts.
In conjunction with this crisis in the Western Cape, Level 1 water restrictions have been in place in Johannesburg for quite some time. However, since many residents of our city were unaware, Johannesburg Water put together a few fun illustrations to create awareness about daily water usage. Become more conscious of how much water you use by clicking here.
The long term opportunity that exists is a new way of using #water in our daily lives, rethinking about our wasteful consumption & becoming more conscious of our water footprint at home&work. #SaveWater #EveryDropCounts #DefeatDayZero #CapeSaveWater @missearth_sa @OperationSA1 pic.twitter.com/0ASsMQcxeU
