Being the face of the initiative, Farhan spoke about water conservation.

Farhan Akhtar, ActorWe aim to create general awareness and empower people about water conservation. Though it sounds like a mission, little actions in our daily life can save a substantial amount of water for the future. For instance, instead of washing your car four days a week, how about doing it twice (a week)? Instead of washing clothes every day, we can do it every alternate day. These are the small things, but end of the week you will realise how much water you have saved.

Farhan Akhtar They have a website called missionblue.in where we have shown how many litres of water that we use while taking shower, brushing teeth and other basic things in daily life and that how much we can contribute to conserve water. It is very simple yet useful.
