Water is not as abundant as you may think, in fact, fresh water only makes up for about 1% of the usable water on the Earth. Here are a few tips, in no particular order that I do to conserve my water consumption.
Reduce showering time.
I take a 5 minute shower or less.
Shower with a friend, but make it quick.
Don’t buy spring water
Fill your own bottle up like a trendy SIGG or BPA-Free Plastic.
Get a Pur or other filtered pitcher for your home or office.
If you have to buy bottled water, recycle the container.
Toothbrushing and shaving
Leave the water off unless you actually need it.
I can go on and on and I’m sure there are plenty of websites like WaterUseItWisely.com that tell you what you can do, but seriously, take a look around you do step it up.
We are greening our bathroom here at the Leafygreen.info and for starters we are installing low flow faucets and a dual flush toilet from Kohler, so please check out the site and follow us on twitter.com/leafygreeninfo to see the whole bathroom project unfold.
