Environment minister Ian Pearson has urged people to find one way to best deal with climate change on World Environment Day.
'Climate change is one of the greatest threats we face today - it threatens our precious environment, our economy, our health and well-being, and the way of life that is so important to us,' he said.Pearson joined 13 water companies in the South East to urge people to use less water. 'Water is the lifeblood of the environment and there's a balance to be struck between taking what we want for ourselves and ensuring the environment stays healthy.'What's amazing is how much impact every one of us can have through the simplest of actions. Reduce, reuse, recycle may be a small message but it has the potential to make a huge difference when we act on it together in our everyday lives.'Waterwise, an NGO that aims to highlight water over-use, proposed three things to reduce water use:Reduce - use your washing machine and dishwasher on full load;Reuse - use water from washing vegetables and fruit on your plants;Recycle - rinse items for recycling in your washing-up water rather than running the tap.
