100 per cent of Qatar’s drinking water is provided through desalination, an energy-intensive process. In Qatar, desalination is co-located with energy plants and reuses the waste-heat for a multi-flash distillation process to separate the salt from the seawater and make it drinkable.

With an energy-intensive process producing our drinking water, it’s clear why every little bit helps, especially with something you do every single day, like brushing your teeth.

Turning off the tap while brushing teeth or shaving can save up to how much water per week?

  1. 10 litres (3,000 per year)
  2. 20 litres (6,000 per year)
  3. 30 litres (9,000 per year)
  4. 40 litres (12,000 per year)
