Water is priceless and the sooner we start valuing this precious commodity, the better. This was precisely the message echoed by a recent water conservation campaign held at L&T Eden Park. The initiative was courtesy of CEC, an NGO that has been conducting campaigns in apartments across Chennai. The campaign — called “I Value Water” — couldn’t have happened at a more opportune moment, especially with families across Chennai apartments suffering from water crisis and having to spend large amounts of money to get water for their daily needs.
Every Drop Counts
With growing global warming and increasing climate change causing erratic weather, there have been droughts in many parts of the world. Many parts of Chennai are already witnessing a preview of what a future of acute water shortage may look like. To prevent this, we need to retrace our steps back and become more responsible about water consumption. Awareness about water conservation is key to tackling this issue from the grass-root level and who better than children — the adults of the future — to lend their voice to the cause?
This is why the campaign involved children who were the ones to teach their elders about reducing water wastage and water conservation. About 5,000 children participated in the campaign and they managed to reach out to as many as 25,000 families. All excited and enthusiastic, the kids motivated people to be mindful in the way they used water.
The Event at Eden Park
Held in collaboration with The Hindu, the campaign at Eden Park saw children spread the message through six interesting Power Point presentations. K. Nagarajan, the president of CEC, talked about various conservation practices, and the need to inculcate the value of water in the next generation. The students were much appreciated for their efforts and prizes were given out to the winners.
Eden Park Cares About Water Conservation
Fortunately for the residents of Eden Park, there is ample ground water available for use. Thanks to this, they never face any problem of water shortage. In fact, the residents have never had to buy water because of ground water supply in the apartment. Also, there are water recycling and rain water harvesting facilities, which help to conserve water.
At Eden Park, water is never wasted; it is recycled and used for utilities and watering the gardens and lawns. These facilities also reduce the maintenance cost of apartments in the township. The residents lead a comfortable and trouble-free life at Eden Park — there is always enough water for all your needs and you can feel good about conserving water as well.
At Eden Park, every drop of water is considered precious; every drop is used wisely, and every effort is made to conserve this valuable natural resource.
