Tips for saving water

In the quest to go green, one of the most important steps you can learn is how to save water. Saving water is vital for anybody wishing to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. Water is the source of so much life that if it isn't respected and we don't learn better ways of saving water then the whole planet could be at risk.

As with so much when it comes to going green, it really is simple to make little changes that will result in saving water. One way of saving water is to aim to use only 140 liters of water per person per day. It may feel like an impossible task to cut back to that amount of water in the aim of going green.

It doesn't have to be so hard though. Simply cutting down the length of time that you spend in the shower will be one way of saving water. If you spend four minutes instead of ten minutes in the shower that is already going to be a lot of water saved. Don't forget that you can be going green just by turning off the running water while you brush your teeth.

There are lots of easy tips for saving water in the kitchen too. For example, filling the sink with a bit of water and washing vegetables in a plugged sink instead of under water will be a big water saving move.

You would be amazed at how much water is saved by scrapping your plates instead of rinsing before putting them into the dishwasher to wash too. It will take you at the most a few more seconds worth of physical energy to scrape them but it will be a tip for saving water that you will be sure to be sharing with all your environmentally friendly friends.

Remember, just turning of that running water at times when it isn't needed is one of the most valuable tips for saving water. Not only will it help you with going green but it will save on your water bill all at the same time.
