Water Saving Tips for Earth Month

Water conservation

Committed to saving water this Earth Month? We’ve got you covered. Here are some simple water saving tips to help you save both indoors and out:

  1. Fix your leaks! While we know Fix a Leak Week was last month, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be keeping your eye out for leaky fixtures. Small household leaks can add up to gallons of wasted water a day.
  2. Shower Better – Showers use less water than baths, as long as you keep an eye on how long you’ve been lathering up. You also may want to consider replacing old showered with a WaterSense labeled model to save on water, energy, and money.
  3. Clean Better – When doing the dishes by hand, plug up the sink or use a wash basin. If you decide to run the dishwasher, make sure its FULLY loaded first. While you’re at it, scrape that plate instead of rinsing before placing in the dishwasher.
  4. Create a Water-Smart Landscape Of the estimated 29 billion gallons of water used daily by households in the United States, nearly 9 billion gallons, or 30 percent, is devoted to outdoor water use. By creating a water-smart landscape you’ll create a yard that is both beautiful and efficient, giving your home some extra curb appeal.
  5. Ditch the Hose – Sweep driveways, sidewalks, and steps instead of hosing them off. Also wash your car with water from a bucket instead of leaving the hose running.

October is Energy Action Month

Did you know, October is also National Energy Action Month? As part of this year’s campaign, WaterSense has launched their ShowerBetter initiative, encouraging people to save water AND energy by switching out old shower heads for a water efficient model!

We all know how important showering is – it wakes us up in the morning, helps us relax in the evening, and refreshes us after exercise. Showering accounts for nearly 17% of indoor water use – for the average family this equals nearly 40 gallons per day. Each time you or your family member steps into the shower, energy is used to heat and deliver water to your showerhead. Opting to install an energy efficient, WaterSense labeled showerhead can save 2,900 gallons of water and more than $70 in energy and water costs each year!

To save even more water, keep your shower under 5 minutes long. 

These small changes can quickly add up in savings – not only for your own wallet, but can benefit the rest of the country as well. According to the EPA website, “If every home in the United States replaced existing showerheads with WaterSense labeled models, we could save more than 260 billion gallons of water and nearly $5.1 billion in water and energy costs across the country annually!”
