1. Take a two minute shower. Seriously it is possible. Set a song on your radio or ipod docking station and make sure you are out of the shower by the time the song is over.
Also make sure you turn off the water on the faucet while you are brushing your teeth, washing your face or shaving your face.
2. Many people think it is best to only fill the dishwasher partway and run it.
Many people think the dishes that are in the dishwasher will get cleaner if only fewer dishes are in the dishwasher.
However this is not the case. The best thing to do for the environment is to only run the dishwasher when it is completely full. The dishes will get just as clean if the dishwasher is completely full as if it was only partially full.
3. Only run a load of clothes in the washer when the washer is completely full. The clothes will get just as clean as they would have gotten if the washer was only partially full and you will save so much water.
4. Consider only flushing the toilet when someone makes a bowel movement. Many people have a saying for this ‘if its yellow let it mellow and if it’s brown flush it down.”
