Conserve Water With These Easy Tips
August 11, 2015 | klein
Water is the most important natural resource on our planet. Because water is so essential for just about every aspect of our survival, it’s very important that we conserve it in our homes and businesses. Here are just a few ways that you can conserve water without really changing your daily routine.
- Turn off the tap. It’s not necessary to leave the tap running when you’re brushing your teeth or shaving, but most Americans do. Turn it off until you’re actually ready to use the water. Likewise, if you have a leaky faucet, be sure to make arrangements to have it fixed as soon as possible.
- Choose a shower over a bath. While baths are relaxing, showering greatly reduces your water usage.
- Be smart about the dishwasher. Using the dishwasher can be an effective way to wash dishes, but be sure to wait until it is fully loaded before running it.
- Use the proper washer settings. Avoid washing individual items or small loads of laundry on laundry day. You should also pay attention to the washer’s rinse settings, as they can help you save water on smaller loads.
