Drink tap water

Less than 20% of water bottles are recycled and almost 44% of bottled drinking water comes from a tap somewhere!

Irrigation

  • Typical setup uses a gallon a minute
  • Use drip lines instead. They use approximately a gallon an hour.
  • Carry water to new plants until they become established. (Then you know exactly where your water is going.)
  • Use a moisture sensor on your irrigation system. (Then you won’t be watering when it’s raining.)
  • Use drought tolerant and native plants. They won’t need much water once they’re established.

Use a low flow showerhead

These use as little as 1.5 gallons per minute instead of 3 to 4 gallons per minute. Do the math and save water and money at the same time.

No Brainer Tips

  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth.
  • When boiling water on the stove, keep the lid on, it will boil faster. (you can save the left over hot water for plants – after it cools down)
  • Turn your water heater temperature down to 120 degrees. (Use the Temperature boost feature on your dishwasher. It will only heat the water that is necessary for clean dishes).
  • Fix any leaky faucets.
  • When rinsing out bottles for recycling, use the rinse water to water plants…. (unless it contained chemicals)

Now. Go forth and save some water and some money!
