Green Tip 8: Save Water, Save Time ... Save a Life.


Tips about saving water should really be no-brainers by now but unfortunately I think many of us (myself included) still need the constant reminding (still working on the no-rinse for my dishes).

Here are just a few others that we need to be reminded of and why ...

BRUSH WITHOUT RUNNING 

You'll conserve up to five gallons per day if you stop. Daily savings in the U.S. alone could add up to 1.5 billion gallons--more water than folks use in the Big Apple. 

SHOWER WITH YOUR PARTNER

Sneak in a shower with your loved one to start the day with some zest that doesn't come in a bar. Not only have you made a wise choice for the environment but it's a shower, with benefits! ;)



TAKE A SHORTER SHOWER

Every two minutes you save on your shower can conserve more than ten gallons of water. If everyone in the country saved just one gallon from their daily shower, over the course of the year it would equal twice the amount of freshwater withdrawn from the Great Lakes every day.
