As washing your hands for at least 20 seconds has become an essential duty and on an average a person washes their hands at least 10 times, can you imagine the amount of water lost? A trillion liters!
As the global community responds to the COVID-19 led pandemic lockdown, there has been an increasing emphasis on public health strategies. WHO promoted several health initiatives like keeping a safe distance from each other, staying home, and most importantly practicing proper hand hygiene by washing your hand with soap for at least 20 seconds.
But can we imagine the amount of water wasted as we leave our taps open? We are busy lathering our hands with soap and scrubbing it with great intent; we are wasting precious freshwater. While you may think you’re taking the right steps to prevent yourself from COVID-19, even touching a tap can be unhygienic due to cross-contamination between users in social places like hospitals, hotels, schools. Railway stations and other cultural areas where self-hygiene is in dire need.
With an urgency to change this situation, Vishwanandh Fego Maladi, founder of Feel Good Innovations, created a campaign called “Savety – The Instant Smart Water Tap.” Savety is an IoT smart water tap that saves the earth by containing a water crisis while also protecting us from the dreaded COVID-19.
With the help of Savety, we can prevent a water crisis by converting your manual taps into automatic taps in just 30 seconds. Savety is very user friendly and easy to install, plus you don’t need a plumber or any additional equipment and can be fixed in just “30 seconds”.
The reason I like the idea behind Savety is that:
- It reduces touch pollution
- It has a first-class water efficiency energy saving and environmental protection
- It has a simple design and is adaptable to various home styles
- It has a one-time charge for 3-4 months that lasts for 6 hours
- It is water and energy sufficient and will, in turn, reduce your total bill in dwellings
As we crusade against COVID-19, let us also remember to practice having good hygiene first. Let us learn to conserve and protect ourselves and the earth and the same, or we may end up with age-old saying
“Water, water everywhere, and all the boards did shrink;
Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink.”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
