10 Ways to Save Water in the Home: 1. Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap for cold drinks. This way, every drop goes down you and not the drain. 2. If you shorten your shower by a minute or two, you'll save up to 150 gallons per month. 3. Designate one glass to use for your drinking water each day or refill a water bottle. This will cut down on the number of glasses to wash. 4. Soak pots and pans instead of letting the water run while you scrape them clean. 5. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth and save 25 gallons a month. 6. Turn off the water while you shave and save up to 300 gallons a month. 7. If you accidentally drop ice cubes when filling your glass from the freezer, or have ice left over from a take-out drink, don't throw them in the sink. Drop them in a house plant instead. 8. The toilet is not an ashtray or wastebasket. Don’t use it as a dumping ground for tissues, cigarette butts, or other small pieces of trash. Every time you flush, five to seven gallons of water is wasted. 9. Put plastic bottles filled with sand or pebbles and water in your toilet tank to cut down on water waste. This may save ten or more gallons of water per day, but be sure at least 3 gallons of water remain in the tank so it will flush properly. 10. Newer dishwashers are very efficient, no need to rinse those dishes, just load them straight in to the dishwasher! Visit Vere Sandals Fan us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter More on World Water Day
