eTranslate Goes Green with its Contribution towards National Water Saving Strategies.
Waterless Cleaning is another key to save water. Up to 95% of metro water usage is from various forms of cleaning. Any technology or better practice that promotes waterless cleaning can enable real water savings.
For centuries, different cultures thriving on waterless land have developed waterless cleaning technologies. Some are still in practice while others have been forgotten overtime.
eTranslate and its multicultural workforce has conducted extensive research through their cultural practices and compilation of a comprehensive findings.
The ancient Mongolians combined the sun, water vapor and wind to remove household dirt. The ancient Egyptian coated their floors and furniture with a film of plant oil aimed to let dirt and grime simply slip off.
The ancient Chinese used a special lather that enable more clothes being washed in a given amount of water.... it is impossible to mention all other methods in this 500 words submission.
As recent as 2004, we see new technology such as waterless car cleaner flourishing in local and overseas markets. The technology is not ground breaking science.
Waterless cleaning is about not being unhygienic or the absence of cleaning. It can refer to the preparation of certain items that require less cleaning, an alternative method of cleaning or using less water for the same cleaning goals.
Households can consider using airblowing and air vaccuming technologies to clean homes, using waterless toilets and using laundry cleaning agent that uses less water to rinse off dirt.
Mining plants can seek an alternative agent to assist in separating mineral components instead of using millions liters of water. As you can see, the list just keeps on growing.
Promoting Waterless cleaning is not an expensive exercise. Researching, evaluating and promoting past waterless cleaning practices is a start. Local, state and federal government can play a bit part in giving leadership in this area.
Where past practices failed to address some modern needs, R&D money should go into this area of research.
Tax relief can be considered for individuals or corporations that invest in developing or simply implementing waterless cleaning methods; the number of liters of water saved could be the unit used to calculating tax relief.
A new economy can also be developed from technologies used to save our other precious commondity - water
Of all the hype on water savings, there has been no mention of waterless cleaning - the real water saver. It is the time that we should all rethink about our approach to water saving.
