My advocacy is to use water appropriately and to practice proper waste management. I chose this advocacy because our water resources are continuously being threatened by human actions, and I believe that there are a lot of simple ways that we can do to save the resources from danger.

Include in your daily routine, using only enough water for taking a bath, or even brushing your teeth. And when you are washing your car, you can use the water you used in your laundry.
