Turn off the tap!
Just by turning off the tap while you brush your teeth in the morning and before bedtime you can save up to 8 gallons of water! That adds up to more than 200 gallons a month.
Fix that leak!
If your toilet has a leak, you could be wasting about 200 gallons a water every day. That would be like flushing the toilet 50 times for no reason.
Beat The Heat!
The best time to water your yard is in the early morning or late evening when its cool outside. Watering when it is hot and sunny is wasteful because most of the water evaporates before the plants have time to drink it.
Who Needs A Hose?
Washing your bike or car with a bucket and sponge instead of a hose saves a lot of water. A hose can waste 6 gallons a minute if you leave it running, but using a bucket and sponge only uses a few gallons!
