A quick shower (max four min­utes)

● In­stead of let­ting the show­er­wa­ter pour down the drain while youwait for it to­warm up, cap­ture the water in a bucket. Then use the water for flush­ing the toi­let or wa­ter­ing your plants.

● Turn off the tap­while brush­ing your teeth.

● Use a bucket of water to wash your car.

● Turn off the tap­while wash­ing your hands.

● If it’s yel­low, let it­mel­low. Do you need to flush ev­ery time?

● Fix your leaks. Drip­ping taps and lit­tle leak­swaste a lot of water.

● Keep water in a cov­ered con­tainer in the fridge. It saves run­ning the tap to get cold water.

● Water the gar­den in the cool of the morn­ing or even­ing.

● Let your lawn grow a lit­tle longer. It will stay greener and need less wa­ter­ing.

● Use a bowl to scrub veg­eta­bles in the kitchen sink. Put the used water on the lawn.
