Water Use Reduction

Government Plans to Eradicate Petrol and Diesel Cars:
How Businesses Can Also Reduce Their Carbon Footprint

With the UK government pledging to stop the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2040, it is clear that the environment is currently a huge issue. On a global scale, the issue is particularly worrying, with the US withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement which is a huge drawback to international efforts to reduce global warming.

It is therefore of utmost importance that businesses make moves towards making their facilities more energy-efficient.

Many people are unaware that water waste uses up vast amounts of energy because the more water used, the more water that needs to undergo cleaning in treatment plants. Therefore, it is important for businesses to make adjustments to reduce their water usage, particularly businesses which require a lot of water such as medical practices, food preparation, gyms, public buildings and schools.

Simple changes can make a world of difference. For instance, installing an aerator for your taps is a cheap of reducing the water that comes out of your tap. Lime supplies aerators starting from only £3.70, products which can reduce water usage by up to 50% for an affordable price. Their range is available here: Water Saving Aerators

Lime also offers timed controls for showers and flushes, designed for all areas of commercial use. These products are a simple way of ensuring that water is not unneccesarily wasted. The range is available here: Timed flow water controls

These products are of an extremely reasonable price, proving that steps towards saving energy do not have to break the bank. A particularly good value product from Lime is the Eco Shower Limiter for only £5.20. This product can be fitted to any shower, limiting the water flow rate to a maximum of 8 litres per minute.
