Conserve Water


Aim to take shorter showers, since cutting your shower time in half can reduce your water costs by 33%. Run the dishwasher only when it is full.

Unless your clothing has oily stains on it, cold water will wash them just as well as hot water. Using a cold water detergent will also help get clothes clean.
