Without quality drinking water, for which Slovenia is also famous, we cannot achieve optimal health or optimal life potential. In this blog, we would like to present you ways to use water consciously and responsibly at home or as a guest of our camp.
We know that water is one of the most important elements when it comes to sustaining life on earth. But in recent years, we have mostly talked about water in terms of pollution and scarcity, which is quite alarming. Not only is water of existential importance to humans, but plant and animal species are also vitally dependent on it. For the latter, the problem of pollution and scarcity is all the greater, as water is a basic habitat for many of them, outside of which they simply cannot exist. Prudent water management, especially in summer days, when the amount of water is highly dependent on rain, is a priority responsibility of every aware earthling. There are several ways to save water, but most of them start in the morning in the bathroom. At the camp, we make sure that toilets and washbasins are regularly inspected for leaks, as leaks consume between 3 and 4 liters of water per day. Saving water in personal hygiene
By installing water-saving showers in the camp, we have made sure that water is used wisely, but where there are no water-saving showers, you can do a lot as a guest while showering by closing the shower while applying soap. We can also save water while brushing our teeth, when we usually let the water run, although we do not use it and also while shaving. We can also be careful when flushing the toilet, as many people use it as a replacement ashtray or even a trash can. Saving water during household chores
We can also significantly reduce water consumption in the household. If you use a dishwasher to wash the dishes, make sure it is really completely filled with the dishes. This makes us use it less and more efficiently. Close the taps while cleaning the vegetables, it is even better to use bowls or a sink filled with clean water. You can also save water when washing clothes, hand or machine. Reduce the amount of machine washing to once a week and choose the quick wash option on the washing machine when possible. Save water when working around the house
Almost every house has a beautiful green lawn around it, which needs to be watered especially well in the summer to preserve life and a beautiful green color. We make sure that it is watered when it is really needed and that it is always watered at the same time, preferably in the morning, because grass is a living thing and it uses water optimally in this way. We can also save water by turning off the taps when washing cars. Although children like to play with water in the summer, this is a rather wasteful way if we do not do it wisely. Water can be poured into the pool, keep it clean with added chemicals used for this purpose and keep it throughout the summer.Camp Menina has a Green Key certificate, which presents a standard of excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operation in the tourism industry. It is also part of Slovenian green accommodation.
