When thinking about greener ways to live, many people focus on energy savings and electricity. Water is an important resource and reducing your usage will help save you money while decreasing your environmental impact at the same time.
- A leaky faucet dripping one drop every second will waste almost 3,000 gallons of water in a year. This is costly for you and the environment. The repair will end up saving you money in the long run.
- Choose landscaping with plants native to your area and climatic conditions. This will reduce the need to water them since they are able to grow in your area under normal weather conditions.
- Find a local carwash that uses recycled water for your vehicle or company vehicles.
- Install low-flow faucets and high efficiency showerheads as well as water efficient toilets.
