In our household, because of how busy we all are nowadays, we tend to just skip over things that we need to oversee. These things are important and can make a huge impact in what we do or in making the world a better place to live in. Some samples are I used to keep track of our electricity consumption on a per month basis, but I get to the point when I’m tired of monitoring it so I stop. Also, I monitor our grocery expenses, but since I found out that we normally spend Php 3500 per week, I stopped monitoring and just set aside that amount for grocery shopping. Another thing that I used to be anal about was water consumption. I used to really check that our bill would not go over a certain amount and I would talk to the helpers if I received bills over the target budget. Nowadays though, I’m less anal about it.
But you know, being conscious of how we spend resources like these are important, not only for our own wallets, but even for society. For electricity, why do you think we have the likes of Earth Hour? For food, we oftentimes tell our children not to waste food, but do we ourselves abide by our own rules. For water, do we use water responsibly? There are a lot of people in our country with no access to the water supply that we have so we need to be thankful and use water responsibly.
So with this, Mommy Ginger and Manila Water is running a campaign called Use Water Responsibly. We would like those on Twitter to help us spread the word and use #usewaterresponsibly when you share tips on how to conserve water.
All you need to do is share a tip on twitter or write the hashtag in a piece of paper and take a photo of you holding the sign and share it on twitter. Don’t forget to tag @manilawaterph and @mommyginj.
To get people excited about this, we are running a promo where you will get very nice prizes from Manila Water. All you need to do is to follow the steps in this widget:
I will randomly choose three winners and each will get a pack of this amazing leatherette folio…
These glasses and car shades, which I don’t have a picture of. 🙂
Join now and help spread the advocacy! This promo ends on October 8, 2014! Join now! 🙂
