Cape Town - With level 6 water restriction officially in place since 1 January 2018 across the Western Cape, South African comedian Nik Rabinowitz has partnered up with FLOW (For Love of Water) to educate visitors to Cape Town on how to save water during the drought crisis.

FLOW  is an initiative on a mission to enable water conservation. 

The initiative connects citizens and organisations to drive behaviour change by instilling a deeper appreciation, understanding and respect for water.

According to FLOW, the unifying message of “For Love Of Water” communicates an understanding that, in order to nurture life, as human beings and as shared custodians of planet Earth, we need to live and act for love of water. 

As part of the City of Cape Town's key initiatives - ‘Save like a local’ campaign - the comedian gives visitors to the city a humorous low down on how to save water.

Last year December, the City of Cape Town launched a channel to help spread a water-saving message during what has been described as an unprecedented drought crisis for the province.

The City and Vodacom, in partnership with Fastcomm spread the message via a new channel on the Vodacom Link app that is available on IOS and Android.
