The cactus flower thrives using minimal water. It teaches us that life can be beautiful without being wasteful or extravagant with our most precious limited resource, water. We can preserve water by paying attention to our water use and applying common sense. For example, we can take shorter showers to save as much as 10 gallons of water, we can minimize excessive energy use by washing clothes in cold or even warm water and save tons of carbon emissions, and we can reduce our dish washer use by only running full loads. We should follow the lead of the elegant cactus flower!
