Most people think we’ll never run out of water, but contrary to popular belief, that is not the case. Interested in taking a stab at a green project that can save you lots of water and money? Let’s begin in the bathroom. Read below to find out how you can make a difference with a few small updates.
Think that a small leak is no big deal? A small faucet drip can waste up to 20 gallons of water per day. That’s 140 gallons per week and 7,280 gallons per year.
You may enjoy taking a long, hot shower after a tough day at work, and let’s face it. It’s quite relaxing. But it might not be so relaxing when you consider the fact that you’re wasting lots of water and it’s taking a toll on your utility bills. You can save 8,000 gallons of water or more each year by switching to a high-efficiency showerhead and cutting down on the amount of time you spend in there.
Did you know that toilets are the main water wasters in homes across the country? Believe it or not, they account for nearly 30% of all indoor water consumption. If you’ve got an old toilet, consider replacing it with an ultra-high-efficiency model. Doing so can save you nearly 18,000 gallons of water and $120 per year.
