10 Tips to give your contribution to the conservation of our wonderful Planet

The water is a limited resource, Italy is, luckily, a Country rich in water while  there are still many Countries around the World which suffer from a growing drought, therefore, when you wash the dishes or any other thing, use these measures, it will help you save on your water-bill and conserve this precious resource:
