What is Water Conservation and Can I Make a Difference?

What is Water Conservation and Can I Make a Difference?

When it comes to taking care of the environment, the term “water conservation” is often used, but what is it, exactly? The term water conservation can be used to describe efforts made to reduce the amount of water used in homes, businesses (and anywhere else), as well as efforts to recycle waste water for other purposes such as manufacturing, irrigation, or cleaning.

Water conservation can be beneficial in a variety of ways.  For example, water management – water purification, water diversion, etc. – uses a significant amount of energy.  This energy usage could be decreased by efforts to conserve water rather than using water in a wasteful manner.  Ideally, water should only be used at a rate that does not take more water out of the natural ecosystem than can be naturally replaced.  By doing so, natural habitats are preserved, which benefits the environment overall.

Conserving water is something everyone can take part in.  There are opportunities in every household to cut down on the amount of water used and the pollutants that enter the water system.  For example, using energy efficient washing machines and dishwashers helps reduce the amount of water used, and often cuts down on the amount of soap needed to get things clean.  Take a step further and invest in detergent-free laundry systems that help clean your laundry without the use of soaps and chemicals that can end up in the water supply and harm the environment.  Taking steps like this in your home helps you and helps the environment.

Not only is it important to reduce the amount of water used, but to protect the fresh water supply by keeping it clean and healthy.  Everyone can make sure that they are using environmentally friendly products to help avoid putting harmful chemicals and other waste products into the water supply.

Get More Life Out Of Your Clothes With LaundryPure!

Get More Life Out Of Your Clothes With LaundryPure!

Maybe it’s your favorite dress. Or that button-down shirt you wear all the time. At some point, though, with regular laundering habits, those beloved articles of clothing are probably going to show signs of wear. Maybe the color fades, or maybe the fabric pills. Maybe stains refuse to budge. Or maybe there’s a residue and lifelessness to your clothing now.

 

You have to launder your clothes, but does that automatically mean you have to watch their quality deteriorate, too? The new answer? NO. Vollara brings you a technology you can use at home called the LaundryPure, and it takes the way you do laundry to a new level. Gone are the days of detergent, harsh chemicals and bleaches, costly hot water and dulling fabric softener. You can get clean, fluffy laundry that still retains its color, shape and style from when you purchased it.

 

Here’s a common misconception about laundry detergent: more is better. Have you or someone you know been guilty of adding a little more detergent to your wash because you wanted to get your clothes cleaner? Problem is, it doesn’t work that way. In fact, using too much detergent can actually have a detrimental affect on your clothes. According to About.com, “…the extra detergent or fabric softener settles back on the clothing and leaves the finish dull and stiff.”[1]

The LaundrPure by Vollara uses the same technology that hotels and hospitals use to launder large amounts of linens. The LaundryPure uses cold water only, and infuses it with oxygen, peroxides, and other gases to bubble and lift dirt and grime from cloth fibers, leaving towels softer and fluffier, and clothes brighter and cleaner.

 

Eliminating the harsh chemicals, hot water and dulling softeners greatly extends the life of your clothing, which saves you money in the long run. Whites are whiter, brights are brighter, and the integrity of your clothing stays intact much longer than it would when washed in a traditional way. Stains are lifted, colors don’t fade and there’s no residue leftover to dull your clothes or irritate your skin.
