Earth Fokus, a Chennai based start-up has found a unique method of water conservation. They come up with sustainable solutions to ensure better water management. Started in 2017 by a group of engineers, Earth Fokus, today is known for its products that curb domestic water wastage. They produce nozzles and similar products that are fit into faucets and which help in controlling the flow of water. These nozzles convert the normal flow into mist enabling a cut down in water consumption by 95%. 

India is growing at a rapid speed today. The ever-growing population and rapid urbanization are leading towards a major gap in the supply and demand of resources. Furthermore, the growth in industrialization is also accountable for the shortage of water. Most people are not even aware of the amount of water that is needed in the industrial sector for production or any other work.

There are concepts like the zero-waste discharge method, that is being adopted by companies. However, these concepts are not absolute in their effect. There is a constant need for technological advances and innovation for water conservation.
