In many places in the US, drought is a serious issue. The hotter our planet gets, the more important it will be to have a consistent, safe source for drinking water.
So let's do our part now to save as much water as possible. There are many quick and easy ways to do this around your house.

» The Final Flow. Low-flush toilets and low-flow showerheads help to ensure conservation by restricting the volume of water involved in each flush or during each shower. Also, consider cutting back your “hours in the shower” for optimal conservation. Toto Toilets use only 1.6 gallons of water and actually work. Click here for Toto Toilets website .
» Running Nowhere. Make sure to turn off water during periods of non-use, while brushing your teeth, for example. If washing or rinsing dishes by hand, adjust the flow of water to a small stream so that the majority of water goes where you it to and doesn’t escape down the drain.
» The Wash on Washers. Using an updated and energy-efficient washing machine, in addition to washing full loads, can drastically improve water conservation. Energy-efficient front-loaders can cut water consumption by almost a whopping 40%.
» The Great Dish Debate. If you have access to a dishwasher, by all means, use it! New, energy-efficient models can conserve water, compared with hand-washing, by up to half. Try for a full load of dishes each time. If a small load is being washed, look for features on your machine that will allow you to adjust the water setting to accommodate a smaller load.
