Saving water is not only about cutting down shower time or washing your vegetables in a pot. There are other surprising but simple ways to conserve water. We have listed some:

  1. Designate one glass for your drinking water each day, or simply refill a water bottle. This simple step will reduce the amount of water you use for washing dishes.
  2. How many times have you thrown away the water you have left in your bottle or cup? Water your plants using the leftover to conserve water.
  3. After washing your clothes in the machine, collect the grey water in a bucket and use it to mop the floors or clean the mirrors in your house.
  4. When you clean your fish tank, use the water you have drained to water your plants. The water is rich in nitrogen and phosphorus, providing you with a free and effective fertilizer.
  5. Instead of using running water, fill a bowl with an inch or two of water to rinse the razor when shaving.
  6. Place a bucket or a basin beside you while showering. The water you collect can be use for flushing or mopping your house.
