Australia has been diagnosed with an addiction to tap water, with the average Aussie turning on their tap nine times a day!

Do you know how many times a day you reach for your taps? Well, Water Night is the perfect opportunity for you to find out.

Between 5pm to 5am on the evening of Thursday, 22 October, Smart Approved WaterMark is encouraging Australians to use one bucket of water, no taps, no showers, no running water (use of water for hand washing and religious reasons is exempt). 

Australian TV personality, Gorgi Coghlan, is an ambassador for the campaign and will be participating in the Water Night challenge with her family. Also doing their bit to back the campaign are Australian Tiktokers including Jasmine XTO and Rory Eliza alongside gardening aficionadas and water efficiency fans, Jane Edmanson, Sophie Thomson and Costa Georgiadis all presenters of ABC’s Gardening Australia.

WSAA is a proud sponsor of Water Night alongside, the Australian Water Association, Power and Water Corporation, Water Corporation, Sydney Water, Planet Ark and WaterAid. Councils including Tweed Shire, Eurobodalla, Dubbo, Tamworth and Liverpool Plains and more are also supporting the challenge.
