My name is Brandon Steuerwald and I go to Carl Sandburg Middle School. I did some research about conserving water. The earth only has 1% of fresh water, the rest of the water in the world is either frozen or is salty. If you turn off the water everyday when brushing your teeth, you can save up to 10 gallons of water. If you buy a low flowing shower head in each of your bathrooms, you can save about twice the amount of water you usually would have taken in a regular shower head. If people use the toliet just to flush little pieces of trash, they can waste up to about 2 gallons of water each flush, that will add up extremly fast. Also do not wash your laundry separatly because you could waste about 15 gallons of water, if you have a full load of laundry. If we don¡¯t start saving water soon, we will end up losing it all.
