Tips to help save water from U.S. EPA WaterSense
- Purchase products with the WaterSense label which are verified by independent third-party certification and meet EPA’s specifications for water efficiency and performance
- Fix leaky pipes
- When washing a car use a nozzle and turn it off when soaping the car
- Shower for a shorter amount of time or take a bath instead
- Sweep side walks and drive ways instead of washing them off with a hose
- When using the dishwasher or wash machine maker sure it is fully loaded
- Purchase a low flow shower head
- Thaw food (i.e. chicken breast, steak) in the fridge over night vs letting water run over it
- Create a compost pile and add food waster to it vs sending it down the garbage disposal
