Conserving Water Is Easier Than You Think

Whether you live in an area that is experiencing a drought, or you simply want to do your part for conservation—conserving water is easier than you think.

  1. Invest in reusable ice cubes, like chemical-free, ice cold natural stones
  2. Use clean ice cubes to water house plants
  3. Keep a pitcher of cold water in the fridge so you don’t have to wait for your water to get cold
  4. While you’re waiting for your shower water to warm up, fill up a bucket with the cold water and use it to water your garden
  5. Invest in a rain catch barrel to water your yard and garden
  6. Use potato, pasta, or vegetable water to water house or yard plants
  7. Yellow is mellow, so only flush for #2 or higher
  8. Invest in aerators, faucets, shower heads, and toilets that use less water
  9. Invest in water saving gardening hoses and garden accessories
  10. Fix all dripping faucets ASAP
  11. When it’s time for new ones, upgrade to an energy efficient washing machine and dishwasher
  12. During the warmer winter months, water your yard in the morning when less water is required than at peak heat
  13. Fill up your sink when washing dishes by hand

Conserving water only requires a bit more time and thought, and in most cases costs little to nothing to implement.
