It may be a drip
or even a drop
but when you add them all up
it can be quite a lot.

I have brothers and sisters
and two parents who
if they followed my lead
could contribute too.

In the shower when lathering
hair, body, and face
rinsing quite quickly
results in very little waste.

When brushing your teeth
it may be a pain
but turn off the water
don’t let it go down the drain.

Now that it’s spring
while washing the car
short hosing off suds
will really go far.

I may be only one person
from the 2.5 million the MWRA serves
but if you look at our nation
we should all try conservation.

Don’t take our water for granted
and the winner would be our planet.
