Chemical-Free Summer : Water Conservation


leaf

We all want to conserve water. And there are many obvious water conservation methods, from not running your automatic sprinklers in the rain to keeping them off of the sidewalk and street. Here are a few more ways to conserve water and stay green!

Water Conservation

  • Showers instead of baths. A low flow shower head uses about 2 gallons per minute, whereas the average bath uses about 30 gallons
  • Turn off the water while brushing.
  • Put dropped ice cubes into a house plant or the yard rather than the sink
  • Use a rain barrel to collect water for plants lawns and car washing

Here are a few more resources to get you started!
