March 22nd means it's World Water Day again! Established by the U.N., World Water Day has been observed annually since 1993 as a way to raise awareness around protecting the world's water resources.

According to WorldWaterDay.org, 27 percent of the urban population in the developing world doesn't have access to piped water at home, and poor people in developing countries pay exponentially more for their water than people in North America.

But water shortages aren't restricted to any one country or continent. As climate change continues to exacerbate environments around the world, recent droughts seen everywhere from the Amazon to the U.S. may become more frequent and more intense. If you haven't started making every effort to conserve water, this World Water Day is the best time to start.

Here are some easy tips to start saving water at home, which will likewise lower your water bill. Submit your own tips to conserve water below, or tweet your idea with the hashtag #SaveWater and we'll add it to the slideshow.
