While South Africa’s water situation has eased, there is an urge for residents to continue preserving the precious resource.
According to WWF, South Africa is the 30th driest country in the world, with 98% of water already allocated.
With water being so vital to the country, one of the areas that residents can save water is to skip flushing after using the bathroom.
Most people are not aware that each time you flush, between 7 and 9 litres of fresh, drinkable water goes straight into the sewerage system.
It’s been said that this generation will be known as the last to waste perfect water on something as menial as flushing waste.
However, what if something as simple as NOT flushing could make an impact to water usage?
Well, not flushing is possible without sacrificing clean fresh air and hygiene.
Organico has created ‘Skip the Flush’, as an alternative odour reducing toilet flushing solution to use instead of water.
The ingredients breakdown waste, kill germs and leaves toilets smelling fresh.
Although the threat of drought is lower than what we saw since 2017, a significant risk still exists which should encourage people to make a difference by starting to skip the flush.
