2. Save That Drop by Spela Kunstelj | TEDxYouth@Bologna
From the video description: "Water is a natural resource that we often take for granted. In nine years, we will not be able to do so with the amount of water we are polluting every day. While we can blame agriculture and industry for the most, we need to start conserving water in our own homes. What are you willing to do to help our Earth? Špela Kunstelj (was) a senior in high school who wants to raise awareness for environmental issues, especially those that are not talked about enough. She believes that raising awareness is the beginning of positive change."
This is as powerful a message as one will hear when searching for water conservation videos.

5. Why Conserve Water? by the Town of Innisfil
Here's one the whole family can watch, educating our kids on the importance of water conservation while also offering some good tips. In it, "Grandfather Frog hops into the Town of Innisfil, Ontario, and finds his pal Jerry Muskrat. Jerry's being very wasteful with water, thinking that he's right next to Lake Simcoe, the 4th largest lake in Ontario. Grandfather Frog shows Jerry how water is not an unlimited resource, and we can strain the system by using more than we need. Even people who draw their water from wells can strain the system. Jerry learns how the Town of Innisfil carefully manages and treats water from Lake Simcoe, and that we must all remember to "Protect The Source" - even muskrats!"
