Posted on May 17, 2007 by Allie

Or you could keep a bucket in the shower to collect water that would otherwise go down the drain. Use the water to water plants, or the lawn, or mop the floor.

A bucket isn’t as much fun as a buddy, but in the end, you’ll probably save more water.

Tip of the Day

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.
