Blog Action Day

Okay boingboing here you are!
Want to save some water? It might not mean too much to some of you but for those of us who live in the desert it is REALLY important! I have a friend who washes her hands forever and leaves the water on the whole time (she knows who she is!)

1. Take shorter showers. One or two minutes less time in the shower
can save up to 700 gallons a month.
2. Turn off the water faucet while brushing your teeth or shaving.
3. Fix leaky faucets, toilets and pipes.
4. Wash only full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher.
5. Refrigerate drinking water instead of running the faucet until water
runs cool.
6. Don't use the toilet for a waste basket you will save hundreds of gallons.
7. Water lawns early in the mornings and only if needed.
8. Mulch around trees and plants to hold water and cool the soil.
9. Wash your car using a bucket of sudsy water followed by a quick hose
rinse. Be sure to use a shutoff nozzle.
10. Clean sidewalks and driveways with a broom, not water from a hose.
