It may seem like everyone’s attention has shifted solely to plastic waste when it comes to environmental issues. Although plastic pollution has been more prevalent in the news than any other type, water conservation is still just as important as ever. There are some easy things you can do around your house that will not only help water conservation efforts, but save you some money on your next water bill.
It’s easy for us to take access to clean water for granted because it comes so readily. This can cause us to begin to waste unnecessary amounts of water. However, with proper water use, homeowners can save up to 30% on their water bills.
You may be wondering what proper water use looks like. It’s actually pretty simple! We just need to be more mindful of the water that we use. This means doing things like turning off the faucet when you’re not using it while brushing your teeth. It can also mean taking shorter showers and only running the dishwasher when it’s completely full.
It may not seem like much, but if we all participate then the combined efforts of these techniques can have a great and positive impact.
