Water conservation tips

Water is the most important resource on Earth. Without water we could not live. According to Water.org, 884 million people lack access to safe water supplies; approximately one in eight people.
  • Reduce running water use :
    Don’t run the tap for cold water – use ice cubes or keep a jug of water in the refrigerator. Never leave the tap running when washing vegetables or dishes, shaving, or brushing your teeth. Use tubs or plug the sink if you can.
  • Fix leaks, stop drips :
    Check regularly for any leaks around taps and faucets and repair promptly.
  • Collect rainwater, reuse greywater :
    Collect rainwater and chemical-free fruit and vegetable washing water for your indoor plants and garden. Reuse greywater whenever you can.
  • Choose native plants :
    Plant trees, shrubs and herbs that are native and generally require less care and water.
  • Water and mow lawns wisely :
    Water lawns and gardens no more than once a week in the early morning or late evening to reduce evaporation. Don’t cut lawns too short and leave the grass clippings on the lawn to keep moisture and feed the grass.
  • Broom driveways :
    Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveways and walkways.
  • Use water-saving shower heads :
    Water-saving shower heads can cut water use by 40%.
  • Protect water sources :
    Don't pour chemicals down drains, or flush drugs down toilets; it could come back in diluted form in your water.
