Use a water-efficient showerhead. They’re inexpensive, easy to install, and can save you up to 750 gallons a month.

Shorten your shower by a minute or two and you’ll save up to 150 gallons per month.

Avoid using the toilet for a wastebasket. Every flush you eliminate can save between 2 and 7 gallons of water.

Use sprinklers that deliver big drops of water close to the ground. Smaller water drops and mist often evaporate before they hit the ground.

Fill the sink with a few inches of warm water. This will rinse your razor just as well as running water, with far less waste of water.

washmachine

When washing dishes by hand, fill the sink basin or a large container and rinse when all of the dishes have been soaped and scrubbed.

Next time you add or replace a flower or shrub, choose a low water use plant for year-round landscape color and save up to 550 gallons each year.

toilet

Replacing an 18 liter per flush toilet with an ultra-low volume (ULV) 6 liter flush model represents a 70% savings in water flushed and will cut indoor water use by about 30%.
