Go Green In The Bathroom

60% of a home’s water consumption takes place in the bathroom, according to the California Urban Water Conservation Council.

8 ways to save water without spending a dime:

  1. Turn the water off while brushing your teeth.
  2. Fill a milk jug with stones and place in your toilet tank to displace water.
  3. Dig up an egg timer from your kitchen and use it to cut showers down to 5 minutes.
  4. Turn off the water while shaving.
  5. Fix toilet and faucet leaks immediately.
  6. Don’t use your toilet as a trash can.
  7. Collect “warm-up” water to irrigate your lawn and flowerbeds.
  8. Conserve energy.  The National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates that .47 gallons of water are lost for every kilowatt-hour of power generated by coal power plants.
