QUICK TRICKS TO CONSERVE WATER

LIFESTYLE

Conserve Water

It’s easy to take for granted, but clean drinking water doesn’t just fall from the sky. Conserving water is important for our future. So whether you live in a drought-ridden state (hello, California) or you’re lucky to receive plenty of that liquid sunshine, it’s important to watch your water. Not sure where to start? Here are some helpful at-home tricks that’ll help out Mother Earth…and your water bill.

In your kitchen:
Use the right size of pot to avoid boiling too much water
Scrub fruits and veggies in a bowl instead of under running water
Reuse cooking water to make soups, bake bread or water plants (just let it cool down first)

In your bathroom:
Limit showers to five minutes or less (your typical shower can use over 4 gallons a minute)
Fix leaky faucets immediately
Turn off water while brushing your teeth, washing your face and removing your makeup
Install a low-pressure showerhead and flushing toilet

In your yard:
Wash your pets, bikes, yoga mats (and anything else) outside so your lawn gets a drink
Water your lawn at night to avoid evaporation
Create a waterless oasis filled with cacti, succulents, statues, and other beauties that don’t require H20

Every drop counts. Turn it off when you can.
