"Grandma's Water Secrets" is a short documentary concerning people's unconscious act of wasting water. "Grandma's Water Secrets" documents the cumulative impact of Grandma's unique actions of saving water, and her call for restorative action by attempting to reshape our views of water. Grandma shares her "water secrets", as well as interprets "reusable" in her own way. Some examples she shares include reusing and recycling shower water, rice-rinsing water, fish water, and overnight tea. As the saying goes, every little makes a mickle. Grandma sets a good example for us to follow, and her own experience shows the tremendous amount of water one individual can potentially conserve per year.
