You know, people ask me for water-saving tips

00:05

all the time.

00:06

It's kinda one of my things.

00:08

Well, actually, it's more of a Melbourne thing,

00:10

isn't it?

00:11

Like talking about the weather.

00:12

You know, 20 years ago,

00:13

Melbourne's average water use

00:15

was 245 litres per person per day.

00:19

And then came a big bad drought.

00:21

And with some very impressive water saving,

00:22

you got that down to 147 litres.

00:27

Go, Melbs!

00:28

Oh, let's not be too smug

00:30

because it's crept up a bit.

00:32

And with our changing climate

00:33

and growing population,

00:34

it's time to bring it again.

00:36

I'm talking shorter showers,

00:38

brushing your teeth with the tap off,

00:40

scraping plates instead of rinsing.

00:43

I mean, who rinses? Yuck!

00:45

I'm talking reaching our daily target

00:47

of 155 litres per person per day or less.

00:52

I'm talking saving water.

00:54

It's as Melbourne as talking about the weather.
