How can households save water?
A reward system for water conservation, instead of added tax for more consumption, may be a viable solution.

I always use washing machine water for other cleaning purposes... We could have a special pipe link our washing machines to a water collection centre, and the town council can re-use the water for cleaning blocks/floors.

I agree with the regular water rationing exercises. Not to save water but to be ready for unforeseen circumstances, like war or disasters. Always good to be prepared.

Is car sharing a good alternative to public transport or owning a car? Would you take part in such a scheme? Why or why not?
I am already using a car-sharing service. Still cannot replace a car... Some issues I face are difficulty in booking a car during peak periods, restrictive rules, and sometimes, the car is faulty.

Given the situation in Singapore, it's better to encourage people to give up private cars. But the Government should come up with ways to improve public transport services.

Car sharing removes the pain of ownership. It's the best of both worlds - I can still use the MRT for convenience and to cut costs, yet, get privacy with a car when I need it.
