A holed cup

People pour water until it overflows, drink it properly and get rid of it without hesitation. While we are imperceptible the usage of water quantity, which is wasted, is huge. If we become directly more conscious than the situation will be different. We can prevent unconscious wasted water usage and use only a necessary amount of water by using this cup. Water could not overflow a settled limit. It can’t be more poured because it has a hole on itself. We always have to pour water in moderation to this Cup, therefore there will be no chance to waste water when we’re using it.
