Conserving water is one of the things you can do to save our earth. Conserving water is good for the hydrological cycle, and good for your pocketbook. With a few minor changes in the way you use water, you’ll find yourself recycling and saving water with ease. Use these tips to lower your water consumption at home.
1) Check your faucets. indoors and out, for leaks and drips. A dripping faucet can waste up to 20 gallons of water each day.
2) Only flush your toilet when really necessary. Don’t blot your lipstick with a Kleenex and then flush it, and don’t flush just to get rid of a cigarette butt or a piece of fuzz. Remember the old hippie adage, “If it’s yellow, let it mellow; if it’s brown, flush it down.” You may not want to let your pee sit in the toilet until you go Number Two, but follow the general spirit and don’t flush wantonly; each time you push the handle, up to 7 gallons of water go down the drain.
