What Can You Do?

1. Conserve Water: here are a few tips to save water:

When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.

Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.

Use the garbage disposal sparingly. Compost vegetable food waste instead and save gallons every time.

If your shower fills a one-gallon bucket in less than 20 seconds, replace the showerhead with a water-efficient model.And Take a 5 minute shower not 20 minutes.

Collect the water you use for rinsing fruits and vegetables, then reuse it to water houseplants.

Reuse and Recycle-Buy recycled products

Install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) when your older incandescent bulbs burn out.

Unplug appliances when you're not using them.

Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. 85 percent of the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water.

Use a drying rack or clothesline to save the energy otherwise used during machine drying.
