Modern society has created the illusion that water is infinite and free, but the environmentally and financially conscious know that’s far from the truth.
DealNews provides a list of easy life adjustments you can make to cut down on water usage and possibly douse your water bill.
Suggestions from the post include:
*Get a water-saving toilet. Some toilets on the market use less than a gallon per flush. Install one of these babies and it could save you more than 20,000 gallons of water per year.
*Use a dishwasher rather than hand-wash. Most modern dishwashers are far more efficient than the old-timey sink-and-dish towel method, potentially using 37 percent less water. Just make sure those loads are full.
*Avoid bottled water. The post cites the Pacific Institute, which says it takes three gallons of water to produce a gallon of bottled water.
If you make it a point to restrict your water use, how do you operate?
