Home / Going Green / 10 Tips to Greener Water Habits

Conserving water is something we must all do, especially during the summer months. If you live in the Southern States, you are more than likely still experiencing droughts and conserving water is a must. Below you will find some helpful hints that will help you conserve water this summer and can apply throughout the year.

Run the dishwasher and washing machines when you have full loads.

When in the shower, place a bucket to catch extra water that can be used to water your plants.

Plant native plants to avoid wasting water on irrigation or a better option would be to xeriscape which would require less water.

Do not use running water to defrost or thaw your meats or frozen foods. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight.

Reduce your use of kitchen sink disposals which require a lot of water to function; obtain a composter to dispose of food waste.

Dont let the water run while brushing your teeth or shaving.

Check leaky faucets, pipes and irrigation systems and have them repaired as soon as possible.

Hot water on demand saves water and energy.

Make sure to know the watering rules and conservation guidelines required by your state.

Start conserving water today, because every drop counts.
