Why conserve water? The answer is simple, because without it we wouldn't be here. With the amount of drinking water required per person shrinking daily, it is important if not critical that we determine to find ways to conserve water. Research scientists have determined that freshwater availability will decrease by over 33 percent within the next 50 years. These numbers are shocking and provide the hard data encouraging us to find ways to conserve water and energy. Below is a short list of easy ways to conserve water at home to help conservation.
1.Turn off the faucet
Whether you are brushing your teeth or washing fruits and vegetables you can do your part in conserving water by turning the faucet off. For every minute the faucet is not running, you save 3 gallons of water. Turning off the faucet is one of the most effective ways to conserve water.
2. Wash only full loads
Wait until you have a full load of dishes or laundry before running your dishwasher or washer and dryer. This is one of the best ways to conserve water and energy. If you must wash a small load, adjust the water levels to accommodate the small load.
3. Install low-flow faucets
By installing a low-flow faucet or shower head you can save approximately 3 to 5 gallons of water per minute. Low-flow faucets can reduce the flow of water to approximately 1.5 gallons per minute. So, why conserve water? In part, because it is our responsibility to help where we can.
