Saving water is critical to conservation efforts, especially in the West, which has been battling drought for decades. Here are some easy ways to reduce water consumption in your home.
Turn off the tap while shaving or brushing teeth. Showers use less water than baths. Additionally, you can turn off the water when soaping in the shower. Plug up the sink or use a wash basin if washing dishes by hand. Use a dishwasher—and when you do, make sure it's fully loaded! Wash only full loads of laundry or use the appropriate water level or load size selection on the washing machine. To save money on your energy bills, set your washing machine to use cold water rather than hot or warm water.
