Happy World Water Day!! — A GREAT day to kick off a new blog!

Even though the Dominican Republic is surrounded by water, they still don’t have safe drinking water everywhere. Did you know 11% of the world’s population do not have safe water to drink and that this, coupled with poor sanitation, results in 2,000 children dying every day.

Hello World! I am Nicole, the daughter in Miller & SONS  Salt & Water Conditioning, Inc. Yes, I know I may be left out of the business name but I don’t let anyone forget that I am still a big apart of the family & the business. My grandfather started out in business back in 1971, as a way to spend more time with his children after a devastating house fire which resulted in the loss of his son, Doug. In future posts I will explain the Miller & Sons story and what it’s like to be in the family business.

I am not really sure why but I have been dragging my feet in starting this blog… For one thing it is hard to make the time and figure out what to say to the WHOLE wide world, so bear with me as I start this new venture! Hopefully over the next few months to come you will learn about my love of  water and why I am so passionate about it and hopefully I will teach you a thing or two and become a more interesting blogger :)

I decided to start this blog today because it is in fact March 22: World Water Day, and what better day to start out a blog about water?? Did you know the average person uses 80 gallons of water per day?? For a family of 4 that’s 320 gallons of water a day, 2,240 per week and 116,480 gallons a year! You can significantly decrease that amount without spending any money!  Simply by turning the water off while brushing your teeth and shaving, running only full loads of laundry, and by taking shorter showers. By decreasing the time you are in the shower by 5 minutes you can save 20 gallons of water per shower!! Do you have a dripping faucet? If so you could be wasting 20 gallons of water per day!! By making these minor changes in your everyday lifestyle you could save water and even save money, and who isn’t looking for ways to save money these days??

Hopefully you aren’t spending all weekend doing laundry & cleaning.  I know I need to try and fit that in between volunteering at the Easter Egg-Stravaganza and family dinner!!  Thanks for making it through my first post with me!! Have a great weekend!
