Have you ever considered just how important water is? Although water is a renewable resource, it should be used wisely. Humans use water excessively, at a much faster rate than it can be replenished. Between showering, doing dishes and laundry, we continually waste thousands of gallons of water each year. How do you conserve water?
There are many ways to reduce your water consumption, such as turning off the water while you brush your teeth, making sure your sprinkler isn’t wasted on concrete, amongst many other water-saving tips. However, a quick and easy way to conserve is to use low-flow fixtures on your home appliances. One household can save 40,000 gallons of water each year with low-flow fixtures. If every household in the U.S. also used low-flow fixtures, we could save 2 trillion gallons of water! The infographic below illustrates the point that just a few eco-friendly changes can make a HUGE environmental impact!
