Importance of Water Conservation

Fresh, clean water is a limited resource. While most of the planet is covered in water, it is salt water that can only be consumed by humans and other species after undergoing desalination, which is an expensive process. Occurrences such as droughts further limit access to clean and fresh water, meaning people need to take steps to reduce water use and save as much water as possible. In some areas of the world, access to water is limited due to contamination. People who have access to fresh water can take steps to limit their use of water to avoid waste.People should do their best to conserve...

So let’s talk little about how to save tree. We already know the basic things like planting more trees and recycling.

Grow And Save Trees

Trees protect the environment against soil erosion, siltation and flooding. Soil erosion causes us to lose valuable agricultural soil to our dams and the sea. Siltation is when soil ends up in our Rivers and dams. This has an impact on flow rate of the river making it more easy to flood as well as reduce the capacity of the dams. As water moves quicker over terrain devoid of vegetation rivers tend to flood easier and more severely. So planting trees reduces the flow and therefore the thread of flooding.

RELATION OF PAPER AND TREE…SAVE TREE AND LIVE AN AWESOME LIFE….

Many people have heard the statistic that “a ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees.” The “17 trees” number was popularized by Conservatree when it was a paper distributor, based on a report to Congress in the 1970s. It was calculated for newsprint, which is made in a totally different papermaking process from office and printing papers. But it was the best number anyone had, so it became the number everyone used to calculate number of trees saved by recycled paper, or number of trees cut to make virgin paper, no matter what type of paper they were talking about. Paper is made from a mix of typ...

CONSIDERATIONS IN CALCULATING TREES TO PAPER

What kind of paper are you talking about? Paper made in a “mechanical” or “groundwood” process (e.g. newsprint, telephone directories, base sheet for low-cost coated magazine and catalog papers) uses trees about twice as efficiently as paper made in the “kraft” or “freesheet” process (e.g. office and printing papers, letterhead, business cards, copy paper, base sheet for higher-quality coated magazine and catalog papers, advertising papers, offset papers). Is the paper “coated” or “uncoated”? The fiber in a coated paper (most often used for magazines and catalogs, with a clay coating that may...
