6 Ways You Can Save Water Now
It takes at least twice as much water to produce a plastic water bottle as the amount of water in the water bottle! Invest in a reusable water bottle or canteen, like these eco-friendly ones by Tree Tribe.
Water your plants and grass only when necessary. More plants die from over-watering than from under-watering. Buying a new flower or plant? Choose low maintenance, low water-use plants like these mini aloe vera and succulents. (via @succulencelondon)
Keep a Brita pitcher of drinking water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap to wait for it to get cold. This way, every drop goes down you and not the drain. (via@tidymom)
Time your shower to try and keep it under 5 minutes. You will save up to 1,000 gallons each month. Look into installing a low-flow showerhead like this one by Nebia.
Spread awareness at work or school by sharing and posting water-saving tips and ideas. You can find some of ours on Pinterest on The water project page..
Make a contribution to a charity or non-profit like The Water Project, which is working to end the global water crisis by installing water wells, sanitation solutions and implementing protected springs in Kenya, Uganda and Sierra Leone.
