Tip of the Day – If It’s Yellow. . .

Posted on August 21, 2007 by Allie


Do you remember that rhyme from the drought during the 80′s? If it’s yellow let it mellow . . .

I’ll be delicate about this and spare you the rest of the rhyme. The point is, don’t flush when you don’t need to.

One flush of a toilet uses as much water as a person in a developing country uses all day. And remember, the water you’re flushing has been processed to be drinking water quality water. That’s a lot of energy going down the pipes.

To limit the water in every flush, give this a try.

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
