EarthOvershoot Day 2023: How our daily water usecan #MoveTheDate

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, August 02, 2023 –Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity’s demand for natural resources surpasses what the earth can regenerate in one year. This means we are living on credit for five whole months and depleting the earth further and further. This alarming factcalls for urgent action to reduce our ecological footprint and preserve the planet for future generations.

And that does not have to be difficult or expensive at all: Simple changes in our everyday behavior and the use of new, innovative technologies could push back the date of Earth Overshoot Day.If households, for example, opted for high-efficiency appliances without using them too often, it could be moved by 6 days[1].

Many people are not aware of the fact that their own home offers great potential for savings,for example when using water.

GROHE,one of the leading global brands for complete bathroom solutions and kitchen fittings,has made it a mission to develop water-saving solutions that empower everyone to contribute to water and energy conservation efforts.

  1. This saves water without sacrificing performance or comfort.
  • latest innovation is GROHE Everstream, the brand’s first water-recycling shower technology that circulates hygienically treated water in order to create the showering experience users expect but consuming as little fresh water as possible – and using far less energy. The shower system uses as little as a quarter of the water and a third of the energy typically required by traditional showers, translating into a costsaving of up to 65% a year for a four-person household, and up to 70% fewer CO2 emissions, depending on individual showering habits.The water recycling shower will be launched in 2024.

Earth Overshoot Day reminds us of the urgent need to re-think how we live and consume.This realitywill continue to nudge GROHE to play a pioneering role in the development of sustainable solutions that change how resources are used in kitchens and bathrooms.With thiscommitment to water and energy conservation and dedication to technological innovation, the brand aims to continue paving the way to #MoveTheDate.
