I was amazed to know,  to produce  1 Kg or rice nearly 3500-4500 liters of water is required and you can imagine with increasing population and rapid urbanization in coming days how much water shortage we will be facing.

if you look around your living space you will find all the free space is covered with cement , even if it rains there is hardly a chance to percolate down to earth. This is one of the reasons why we are facing water problem, in this scenario Rainwater harvesting is a very good option to recharge the ground water level .

Rainwater harvesting is the accumulating and storing of rainwater for reuse before it reaches the ground, It has been used to provide drinking water and used for irrigation as well as well as other typical uses. Rainwater collected from the roofs of houses and local institutions can make an important contribution to the availability of drinking water. It can supplement the subsoil water level and increase urban greenery.

I was happy to see  my collegues building a water harvesting pit to conserve water and i felt how good and how important is to conserve the water and this water will be used for garden purpose.

Environmental Policy has done the trick and turned out to be a good Employee Engagement Activity.
