SOCIAL IDEAS

Did you know that about 18 litres of water flows through an unregulated tap, per minute? Assuming 30 minutes of usage ( kitchen and bathroom tap)per home per day , about 200000 litres  of water are wasted per home in a year.

Imagine ,  the saving in costs to the government and to the planet, if this could be avoided .

Hidush is currently working on an idea to manufacture a ‘water tap’ that is robust, economical and efficient. A combination of water saving and water regulation.

Do you have an unique idea that  will make a “sustainable” difference to this planet? Hidush will endeavor to find an entrepreneur to make this a reality.

Have that “Eureka” moment .. make a difference to this planet .
