High water bills? Want to be a water-conscious kiwi? Auckland is experiencing a water shortage. Auckland is still feeling the effects of severe drought in 2019-2020 and a dry autumn in 2021. Be waterwise this winter. Being water-conscious is a critical part of living sustainably. And as a bonus, saving water saves you money!
We’ll run through the possible ways of saving water in your home. Brought to you by EcoMatters Environment Trust and Watercare Services Ltd.

EcoMatters' aim is to be a focal point (tohu) to connect people and the environment and to nurture a sense of guardianship (kaitiakitanga) for our beautiful planet.
