Recently, I was put up in a hotel while I was away to another city location. To get hot water for a bath, I turned on the water tap – and the water was cold. In order to get hot water, it is necessary to leave the tap open for 2 to 3 minutes.
After I did so, it made me think. To get hot water, every person in the hotel must be leaving the tap on for similar time – so much water goes literally down the drain. While I am not sure if the water is recycled, it made me pause for a moment on realizing the amount of water going waste.
