How you can help to save water after a 20% usage increase in the UK

Date posted: 7.07.2020

Saving water at home

In May 2020, water usage was at an all time high. The Covid-19 lockdown, paired with the driest May since records began led to an increase in water usage of over 40% in some areas of the country. There was a total surge of around 68.2 billion litres needed in the whole month, equating to over 850 million bathtubs!

Waterwise and Water UK have teamed up to encourage the idea of water saving practices in day to day life – which can be seen here.

Saving water in the workplace

Whilst this article explains the excellent way in which everyone can reduce their household water output, at HSG we believe that when the UK returns to work after lockdown reducing water costs in the workplace is just as important.

With the Ureco Urinal Sleeve System being able to cut up to 96% of water usage from your sites urinals, not only are you doing your part in cutting down water usage, but also managing to save yourself a lot of money in the process.
