water conservation never looked so good

I read an intriguing article in Whole Living magazine on the weekend about the dire need for us all to get better at conserving water. Did you know that nearly two-thirds of the world's population will experience water shortages by 2025? That is scary. Whole Living gives some great tips on everyday things we can do help save our water supply, and some of them even give us great excuses to amp up our style as well!
