Water Demand Management in Malaysia

Heard this one on BFM yesterday about Water Demand Management in Malaysia and boy it was a very interesting talk. Here are some staggering stats that we all have a part to play

  • A conventional toilet uses between 9 and more liters of water , a water saving toilet would use half or less of that. 
  • A conventional shower head uses 13 liters a MINUTE which means 5-10 minute shower you would have used about 130 liters of water.Water efficient shower head uses 5 liters a minute
Its MASSIVE! This is a massive problem and i sure hope that the government, developers starts the education process in a large way to educate us to be mindful of these stats and issues and provide the resources for us to be sustainable .
I highly recommend you listen to the podcast and please spread the word, it is IMPORTANT!

Sollar Bottle Light!

Isang Litrong Liwanag (A Liter of Light), is a sustainable lighting project which aims to bring the eco-friendly Solar Bottle Bulb to disprivileged communities nationwide. Designed and developed by students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Solar Bottle Bulb is based on the principles of Appropriate Technologies – a concept that provides simple and easily replicable technologies that address basic needs in developing communities.

It’s a special project! Imagine giving light to people who live in darkness and don’t have that very basic element to live in and this is a cheap and effective way to bring lights to their homes! This is a superb case study and should be taken across the globe to many places where people don’t even have basic light.

Imagine the smile’s on the faces of the people who get this new light , PRICELESS!
