1. Turn off your taps.

Turn off the tap while you’re brushing your teeth in the bathroom. In the kitchen, don’t just leave the water running the whole time you’re doing the dishes. Especially don’t leave the water running when you walk into another room.

2. Only boil the water you need.

Don’t just boil an extra amount of water when you’re making tea or pasta. Only boil the amount that you need.

3. Shorten your showers.

Don’t take needlessly long showers. It’s sometimes helpful to set a timer on your phone to make sure it’s under a certain amount of time. It’s also helpful to switch to a more efficient shower head.

4. Only do larger loads of laundry.

Doing one full load of laundry uses a lot less energy and water than two half-loads. Fortunately, not only will this save water, but it will also save you money.

5. Steam food more often than boiling it.

This is especially good with veggies, and it also retains natural nutrients.

6. Collect rainwater.

Installing a rainwater collection system can be life changing.

Just one of these tips implemented could save a great deal of water and money. Implement more than one, and watch how your life changes.
