Top Tips to Save the Earth: Save Water

Fix that Leaky toilet.

Or, sink, or bathtub faucet. The point is that fixing a leak can save 200 gallons of water every day! Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6 litres of water per minute.

Cut your showers short.

Older shower heads can use as much as 5 gallons of water per minute. Speed things up in the shower for some serious water savings. Or for fun and savings…Shower together!

Choose efficient fixtures.

Aerating your faucets, investing in a low-flow toilet, choosing efficient shower heads, and opting for a Water Sense rated dishwasher and washing machine can add up to big water savings.

Go Vegetarian. 

Eating Vegetarian only once week can save 2500 gallons of water. It takes 2500 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef.

Don’t run the dishwasher or washing machine until it’s full. Those half-loads add up to gallons and gallons of wasted water.

Flush with less. Older toilets use a lot of water. You can reduce your usage by sinking a half gallon jug of water in the toilet tank. Do NOT use a brick, because it will break down and the sediment can damage your tank.
