Water, Water, Everywhere....

How long does it take you to shower?
  • Shorten your shower by a minute or two and you’ll save up to 150 gallons per month.
  • Take 5-minute showers instead of baths. A full bathtub requires up to 70 gallons of water.

How can you save on laundry?

  • At home or while staying in a hotel, reuse your towels.
  • Washing dark clothes in cold water saves water and energy, and helps your clothes retain their color.

How about outside?

  • Collect water from your roof with gutters and downspouts.
  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean patios, sidewalks and driveways, and save water every time.

What about my dog Frank?

  • Wash your pets outdoors, in an area of your lawn that needs water.
  • When you give your pet fresh water, don’t throw the old water down the drain. Use it to water your trees.
