Water and Sanitation

Water and sewage treatment play an important role in our efforts to live more sustainably. We may not think of the UK as a particularly dry country, but due to a densely-settled population, there is less water for each person than Spain and Portugal and it is not uncommon to have shortages in the south-east of the country.

A lot of water is used for baths, showers and toilets in the home and for watering plants in the garden. There are many simple ways to reducing water consumption, and to use rain and grey water in the garden.

In homes away from the mains, sustainable sewage treatment solutions such as reed beds and compost toilets can ensure sewage doesn’t pollute the environment. They also help us make use sewage as a source of nutrients to restore and improve soil fertility.
