Water is important! There is a lot of it here but that doesn’t mean that we don’t need to conserve it. Drinking water only comes from a limited number of dimishing sources and it is not easy to turn sea water into drinking water. It is also expensive and not very Eco. Check out these easy tips from Earth 911 on how to save water
5. Don’t Be a Drip
When you brush your teeth, turn off the tap. Doing so may save eight gallons a day, according to the U.S. EPA. Here are some other easy water-saving measures:
- Install an aerator or a faucet that meets the EPA’s WaterSense efficiency standards
- Repair dripping faucets and showerheads quickly to reduce water wasted. Can’t get a plumber over soon enough? Collect the drops to water your houseplants later.
- Water your lawn and garden during the cool morning hours, minimizing the amount of water that’s evaporated. Aim sprinklers where the water is needed, rather than allowing overspray on the sidewalk or driveway.
