Blogger to publish book of curated water tips from locals

Writer, blogger and editor Helen Moffett is putting together a book on all the water-saving tips she's gathered on her blog.

The book, titled 1001 Water-wise Ways, will be published by independent South African publisher, Bookstorm.

Moffett says Bookstorm's CEO Louise Grantham approached her with the idea of creating a book.

She says Cape Town residents all deserve credit for co-authoring the book by sharing their water-smart advice.

I often say it takes a village to write a book, but this is much more than a village.

Moffett has warned Capetonians not to become slack, following the push back of Day Zero to 2019.
