Conservation - Water Use
Purchase clothing made from recycled materials.
Wash clothes in warm water instead of hot.
Wash a few big loads of laundry instead of many smaller ones.
Dry clothes the natural way, by hanging them on a line.
Purchase clothing made from fabric that is sustainably produced.
Recycle your old, but usable, clothes by donating them to a non-profit organization like Planet Aid or Goodwill. More than 2 billion pounds of clothing are dumped in landfills each year.
Wear clothes more than once.
Purchase a low-flow toilet. Installing a 1.28-gallon high-efficiency toilet saves up to 16,500 gallons of water each year versus less efficient toilets. You’ll save money, too.
Don’t run the water while shaving or brushing your teeth.
Take a bath instead of a shower.
Purchase an eco-friendly showerhead.
