Hundreds of gallons of good water go to waste each year! By saving every drop you can save money and the planet! There are plenty of ways to go about this, like collecting the rainwater that falls in your yard and using it as a substitute. You can get tanks for this anywhere, like the rainwater tanks in Perth that Australians are currently making the most of to save on their water bill and help the environment.
There are other ways to save water too. Preparing dinner for your friends or family? Remember to wash your ingredients a water-filled bowl rather than running them under the faucet – you can later use this water to water your house plants, while reducing wasted water from the faucet. Additionally, place a bucket under the shower to catch cold water while you wait for the shower to heat up – you can also use this water to water your plants with! You might also want to invest in getting a water flow meter so you can keep an eye on any drops in your water pressure and ensure that your water is flowing properly. If you would like to learn more about water flow meters – you can read this flow meter definition, research online or speak to your water company.
Be mindful of water use while cooking, and try to save as much water for later use as possible!
Doing this can save hundreds of gallons of water per year while reducing your water bill. Even if the savings are small, these actions are free and easy, and ever drop counts for our planet!
