Limited access to drinking water is an everyday reality for millions of Indians. National Geographic and Water Aid India are trying to solve this issue with their new campaign Blue Mission. The initiative focuses on raising awareness of the issue and it shows how small changes in water consumption can help secure a safe and clean source of drinking water for (not only) the next generations. As part of the Blue Mission, National Geographic will present documentaries and TV programmes on its channels in India.

TIPS:

Take short showers. Having a bath consumes a much larger amount of water than a 5–10 minute shower.

Do not rinse. If you have a dishwasher, do not rinse your dishes before use.

Dry clothes in open air. Let your hair and clothes dry naturally instead of using a hair or clothes dryer.

Always wash a full load of clothes in the washing machine.
